Hey there, hero!

Ever had a situation where you had every intention of completing a project, but for some reason, it never got done?

Ever wonder what those reasons usually are?

If you knew, would it help you finish more tasks and reach more goals in the future?

I bet it would. Here’s a few reasons why that happens.

Hope this helps!

  1. I feel like I don’t know what to say, or for how long I should ‘demonstrate ‘ my voice. Don’t want to be boring. Lack of self confidence? My voice has been well praised in various countries. Had some powerful people talk with me because they liked my voice, yet I feel stymied when it comes to doing a brief recording. Shish!!

  2. Spot on with this one. I’ve been hard on myself lately because of a project that is hanging over my head. I really want to do it but the details are scaring me and so I freeze up instead of moving forward. I want it to be so good that the perfection part stops me too. You are so right, get it out there and then work on it. I have so much of it done already too! I’m going to kick my own butt this coming month and get it done!

  3. I can’t think of a project like this for me off the top of my head. I’m sure I’ve had one or two. The three things you’ve identified as causes for not completing projects are things I’ll keep in mind though when I find I have a project that just isn’t getting done. Thanks for the video David.

  4. Usually for me, I end up walking away from something because of some unforeseen aspect of it that kills the joy. Like when I got my private pilot license so I could make weekend trips to places that were too far for weekend drives. I knew getting into it that it wouldn’t be cheap. What I didn’t foresee is that it would be a time sink, too. Unless you have an instrument rating and fly a lot, you can’t count on being able to fly at will. You could very easily end up somewhere far away, with a rented plane, and bad weather, so you can’t return when you need to. So I just flew less and less, until I wasn’t flying at all.

    But VO is something of a different animal. While I enjoyed flying, VO is more something I’m *compelled* to do; I just *love* it. I feel like it’s something I need to do to feed my soul. I’m hoping that that will carry me through until I no longer need a full-time job, a couple of years down the road. I mean, how much to you have to need it to be hoping you’ll get laid off? 😉
