If you're a women who has come into contact with a magazine or the internet, then you probably have been encouraged to de-clutter something: "De-Clutter Your Bathroom!" "De-Clutter Your Junk Drawer!!" "De-Clutter Your Closet!!!"
ACK! Well... this also applies to your bank of ideas.
My client was having trouble figuring out what she wanted to write about. Each idea had pros, cons, different personal and professional motivations. What she thought she 'should' do next, but didn't really want to do. And then she said:
"I have had an idea for a very long time that I've talked myself out of repeatedly."
Oh boy, those are the ideas that haunt us. But I think they stick around for a reason.
Do you have some ideas that just won't go away? Do this exercise to figure out Now, Later, or Never for each idea.
I know it’s annoying, but YOU have to be the first person who believes in you. UGH it is annoying. It is soooo annoying.
But you have to. Because it all starts with you. No matter how many people are in your corner- agents, managers, best friends that think you are amazing- You still have to do the work.
So what does that mean?
