Don’t panic – no slicing and dicing of our cute little Kermit is involved!
This is a tip I picked up from my business mentor to help you get things done.
If you had to eat a frog before you go to bed today – when would you eat it?
We all have ‘those’ projects. You know – the ones we started with all good intentions – and then went off – – or the ones that have got buried because we ran out of something – or we passed over on to more exciting things – or sparked off another idea. Those are your ‘frogs’. We push them away in the cupboard – or burry them in boxes and forget all about them – well we try to forget all about them – but they niggle away at our subconscious and hold us back – those are your frogs.
Soooo – you HAVE to do it. You have to eat your frog today. Do you put it off for as long as possible and not go to bed for 3 days because you really just can’t – or do you slice your frog on toast for breakfast and get it over with because that way – you can play all day without it hanging over your head all the time.
Meet my frog of the past 8 months or so. I started it because I never make enough ‘big dog’ jumpers – but I had only done about 4″ and I went off it.
It has been sitting in my favourite work basket (thinking as it was in my favourite basket I would do something about it! – yeah – right – don’t work). Every time I finish a project and am looking to fill in an odd evening I have picked it up and done a bit – but I have hated every minute of it! This year I have been making a huge effort to finish – tidy – clear – and I have finally finished it.
The positive side is – I love the basket weave stitch – so I will be writing a new jumper pattern with that stitch – but a nicer body pattern.
I can’t tell you just how good it is to have finally finished chewing on my frog!!!!!!
