100 Projects 100 Days Has Begun
100 Projects in 100 Days. It’s a challenge that’s for sure. I’m excited to start and at the same time I’m a little nervous.
I am absolutely drowning in projects. It’s not a joke anymore. After organizing my inventory I realized that half of a two car garage was full of unfinished projects. Something had to be done.
By nature I’m a worrier. I worry about everything. Doubt is my constant frenemy. So yes, there is an undercurrent of stress involved with starting a challenge like this. Can I do this? Am I setting myself up for failure? What if I can do it?
Then I remind myself that my words for this year are:
Kindness & Grace
and I relax a little. I remind myself that this challenge is about forward momentum. Forward progress in small manageable chunks.
This is a tactic I’ve employed throughout my life. I get overwhelmed easily when I look at the big picture of things, but if I tell myself, “I only need to do this piece today.” And I keep my focus as narrow as possible while I work toward completely my big overwhelming project I can get it done without anxiety.
So that’s what I am setting out to do with this challenge. I’m narrowing my focus. I’m not looking at the HUGE stack or projects that need to be done. I’m only picking up one today. I only have to do this one small piece.
The Goal of 100 Projects 100 Days
At the end of the 100 projects 100 Days challenge I hope to see most of the projects from the unfinished side of my garage be transferred to my inventory side of the garage. My goal is to build forward momentum and to stop feeling bad about what I didn’t get done yet.
No Guilt. No Shame
Yes, I actually feel ashamed when I think of all the money I’ve spent collecting these pieces that needed to be worked on before I could sell them. That is potential income for my business that is sitting idle in my garage.
Sometimes the guilt is so overwhelming I can even face going into my garage or my She Shop.
That ends today. Today is the day that I set all that aside and say, “Nope. Guilt and shame you need to take a back seat to the progress I’m trying to achieve. You’re not helpful at all.”
