Kaizen, Baby, Kaizen
Little by little, right? I mean, how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Patience is a virtue.
Well, at least I’m learning. The best way to get better is to keep getting better. Although tempting to “swing for the fences” and then give up if it doesn’t work soon enough, the most successful people projects I know of simply keep trudging along. That’s one of the reasons why it’s so important to be involved in something that you care about, really believe in. Otherwise, you’ll end up leaving it in a pile with all of the other things you’ve “tried”. And, as one wise little green fellow said, “Do. Or do not. There is no try.”
On the bright side of things, I am getting better. Supermega is really starting to take shape. And as soon as I get a little more attention for the site, I know that people will find it a truly useful resource, which is all I could really hope for anyway…
With that in mind, take a minute to evaluate your project (or projects). How do you really feel about it? Does it have enough meaning in your life to keep you focused? If not, is it due to the project being not important enough to you, or is it that you’ve lost sight of the meaning it once had, and could have again? It might be worth sitting down for a minute and asking yourself these kinds of questions. Another approach is to actually pull out the old pen and paper and start writing what the project is, what it means, what the benefits will be to accomplishing it. With those things clearly in mind, you will find you have renewed vigor to push ahead, slowly perhaps, but forward. One bite at a time.
Hang in there.
