Do you know the book by Brian Tracy called "Eat that frog"?
You can see the little movie here. His idea is that if you do the most hideous thing on your to-do list first thing in the morning, the rest of your day will only be better. I like this idea and have used it to face up to tasks that are distasteful or painful. Just get it done so that the rest of the day you don't have to spend thinking about it, and in fact you can feel proud that you were able to complete something difficult.
I was reminded of it again when I read this blog post from Debra. She was being held up in progressing on her project by birds' feet. Yep... those darn bird feet! So tiny and hard to sew. Once she finished the feet, the energy of the project cleared up, and everything flowed more smoothly through to completion.
My current FROG is my June UFO. I will just chop off the side triangles, but I don't know what to do with the bottom of the braids. Cut them off? Insert triangles? Blue triangles? Scraps? To meet the end of the month deadline, I needed to make a decision. Any decision. I just have to eat the frog and get that done to make progress on this thing.
Do you have a frog you have to eat? What's the 'bird feet' on your project?
We just need to get it done!
