If you have been trying to get your book finished before the new year, then perhaps it’s time to stop procrastinating and make 2022 the year to get things finished!
It’s almost the new year. How are your projects looking? It’s easy to lose track of projects toward the end of the year. We’ve all been guilty of that at one time or another in our lives. However, just because you didn’t finish a project in 2021 doesn’t mean that it’s too late to get yourself organized and complete it now. It’s time to stop procrastinating and start doing!
There’s nothing worse than having unfinished or half-finished projects started. What starts as one quickly turns into several, and before you know it, you have a long list of projects that you consistently put off. It’s easy to get lost in the fog. All these unfinished jobs can start to affect your productivity. Eventually, they can even leave you feeling like you can’t accomplish the things you set out to.
To help get these unfinished projects completed, have a look at what’s stopping you. Check out some of our tips on Instagram!
Better Time Allocation
If it’s time, look at where your time is spent and try to better organize what you’re doing during the day. You would be surprised at how much you can get done by cutting your time spent scrolling on social media by thirty minutes. While social media performs a useful role in our lives, it’s easy to let it overwhelm you. Looking at your schedule and making time to finish any outstanding tasks will help you feel like you’ve accomplished a goal and boost your morale.
Better Budget Allocation
If money is the issue, look at what you need to complete the project and break it into reasonable amounts. You don’t have to go crazy at the start. Look at your budget and see if you can cut from your expenditure and allocate a small amount each week or month to your saving. You would be surprised at how quickly a few dollars can add up! If you need to, talk about installments. It could make the project easier to manage.
New Year | New Book | New Resolutions – Conclusion
If there is a 0% chance of completing the project right now or in the immediate future, then archive it until later when you have the money. Don’t put yourself under financial stress or personal stress to complete a book or another project. Never rush your book or take shortcuts. If you have to, save up to get the best version of your book.
While it’s always a nice feeling to accomplish a goal, personal health and welfare should always come first. Don’t put your own health and well-being at risk. Otherwise, you’ll never be happy with the finished product.
