Sticking Points Teach Us Stuff

I’ve been a bit quiet on social media for Embrace Shiny, which is probably not wise. No one builds a business by going silent and not letting people know they exist! But I can share with you something I’ve learned in the past two months: I really hate editing my own work.

And that’s a good thing. Sort of.

 

It’s not good because I spent a lot of time not getting enough work done on my books. And it was frustrating me for a long time, because it was so, so close to being done. From a “productive” viewpoint, I just wasn’t. Not at all productive. 

 

And while I spent a lot of time wishing for my book to be “out there” already, I am learning (or probably relearning for the twentieth time) that doing things that aren’t really interesting to me is a negative. To me, it makes me feel stalled. It kills any momentum I have for doing work on any project. It kills love and it makes me make bad decisions on whatever project I’m working on at the time.

 

So the next time you reach a sticking point in a project, ask yourself what the lesson is. Can you learn something from this?
