How can you make progress in your jewelry business when there are so many things you want to create and do?
This is a real challenge for creative people.
We tend to have more cool ideas than we can ever possibly follow through on.
And new ideas always sound so much more inspiring and enticing than what we’re working on now!
So how do we get things finished?
First of all, I recommend capturing all of your great ideas for your jewelry and your business in an idea journal.
That way you can prioritize, develop, and use these ideas when you’re ready.
Now here’s the important (but challenging!) part.
You can’t take action on all of these exciting ideas at the same time.
So choose one of your ideas or projects to focus on for now, and do it well.
Because the only way to make progress is to finish things.
And the best way to finish things is to have just one project going on at a time.
Otherwise you have dozens of projects going at the same time, in various stages of getting started or being worked on, and nothing ever gets finished.
And I know that because I have often been the queen of that, having too many projects going on, and working on too many ideas.
That doesn’t do justice to your great ideas – and it’s frustrating because you don’t make any progress.
So the best thing to do is to get those ideas recorded in a jewelry journal, pick one of the ideas, and then work on that project from start to finish.
And when you finish it, you can pick the next idea to work on.
You will be amazed at the progress you make by focusing on just one project – one idea – at a time, and taking it all the way from start to finish!
I would love to hear your experiences with either having way too many projects going on at once, or actually focusing on things and taking them all the way from start to finish.
Thank you so much for joining me today to talk about this, and I’ll see you next time!
