Getting Started is 50% Of The Battle

Updated: Apr 4, 2019

Getting started is the monster part of the battle of getting a project done.

Quick sketch backgrounds one after the other until you feel how feel how easy it is to let go a piece and seize on the next. Feel how your brain starts making connections between your desperate, fast breathless drafts.

Feel the empty space fill with a plan to next.

It works. Failing my florid prose, do this: put 20 minutes into starting something while bargaining with yourself a procrastination excuse worthy of a Hollywood Star.

Just 20 minutes.

Yes, I like the idea of working so fast that you're achieving something before you know it. I go super easy on myself and give myself 10 mins to do a thing...then find myself still there over half an hour later. Oh the ways we trick ourselves!

Why is it so hard to get started though? The 20 minutes deal sounds like a great idea. I'll try it!

True! I set 20 minute timers for things I have put off....

20 minutes is a powerful thing. I continually try this and find that if I can just focus for 20 minutes at a time, I get so much more done. Thank you!
