“Oh, this is the start of something good
Don’t you agree?”
– Gavin De Graw, Follow Through –
If you’re anything like me, you like bright shiny things. I get excited about new projects and ideas, start a whole bunch of things and then sometimes struggle to prioritise or complete them.
However, I am equally, very good at following through, when I want to. I just have to decide. I really do love finishing things that I start. And last year was a perfect example.
Last June I decided that I was going to start my own business in Australia and sponsor myself to stay, and 6 months later, come 12th December, I had done just that.
So, the question is, how do you follow through?
Well a very simple set of tips to follow are
1. Pick one project
2. Commit to it
3. Set a deadline
4. Focus all of your energies on completing it
Another couple of tips for following through as well are
- Set an intention at the beginning of the week to complete a project by the end of it
- Set an intention to complete at least one task relating to your project every day
For example, this week I set the intention of completing my website by the end of the week and every day this week I have made sure that I have taken action to make this happen every day.
Tomorrow I will be handed my website in order to make final copy amends to it. I will pass it to people for feedback over the weekend and I should be ready for it to go live on Monday.
I have also found a great video by the lovely Marie Forleo which includes her top 3 tips on following through.
So, the question is, what are you going to commit to following through on and completing next week? Set the intention, so you know what to focus your energies on from Monday.
Sending you lots of love, hugs and light,
