Finishing Projects

     I think it must be a curse. I’ve been working on a project. I’ve been working at it for a while.
Then it happens. It sneaks up on me, as I get closer to the end of the project. It’s called. I get tired of the project. After doing the same thing three hundred times, it loses it’s appeal. After working at the same thing for a month it gets monotonous. After keeping at it for a while I just want to be done without having to do the rest of the work.

It happens a lot. We get halfway through a project and we don’t want to finish.

So what do you do when the half-finished project blues hit? Here are a few suggestions.

Put the project down for a while. Sometimes just setting the project aside for a few days can make a world of difference. You get a rest and come back ready to go another round.

Also find a new audiobook, or some new music to listen to while you work. If you are really enjoying what you’re listening to, it makes the work lighter.

Remember why you started the project in the first place. Keep in mind why or for whom you wanted this project to be for. It makes a big difference.

Lastly, keep at it. After everything has been said and done, just keep at it. That’s way projects get done is by simply, methodically, and sometimes strenuously get done.

In the end all projects are work, but in they are very much worthwhile.
