Being more regular

When I started writing these posts I was sure I wouldn't last a week. It was the third time I had committed to doing this and I'd failed both times before.

I'm working on another project and I desperately am trying to be more regular and complete one big task for this project each day, week after week, month after month.

I've had good runs for a few weeks at a time and even a few months at a time, but in the 5 years I've been working on the project, I've never managed to put together more than 5 months where I am regular and consistent.

I think the issue is a matter of my self-discipline and self-starting. Greatness lies in the ability to start without somebody forcing you to. I tend to let a desire for perfection neuter good things before they have a chance to get off the ground.

If I'm being honest with myself, I'm not sure it's a desire perfection or a fear that what I'm doing isn't good enough. The thought process if then that perfection is the ONLY thing that would be good enough. It's just another excuse that I let hold me back.

Writing it down and putting it out there is helpful, so I suppose we should consider this post more of a lecture to myself than anything else.
