To get anything done, I have found that making small daily commitments works best for me.
On my Instagram account, @sheilamhageman, for example, I have committed to #OneYogaPoseADay, posing and posting one yoga pose a day. This is the biggest commitment that I can comfortably make to yoga right now, but at least it keeps me active in yoga and creativity in a tiny way.
One yoga pose a day. Justin Trudeau and me doing mayurasana. Ok, well...one of us may be doing a #fakeasana in honor of #fakenews. But we both are rocking it! #oneyogaposeaday #yogafun #yogaaddict #justintrudeau #canada #cdnpoli #mayurasana #peacock #canadalovesyoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogainheels #om #yogalove #yogaforeveryone #funnymemes @gregkolz
I also have committed to sending out one pitch a day during the work week to make sure I am constantly pitching freelance essays. This has been doable and is keeping me writing everyday.
Another commitment I tried to make was editing at least one page of a large work-in-progress or writing at least one page of one my larger projects. I didn't succeed fully on this one yet. I have been giving in to sleep!
I won't be hard on myself though, I will try again, starting today. (Always start today, not tomorrow, with a new commitment!)
So, back to the drawing board...or writing board, or laptop, that is!
Why don't you give it a try?
Make one tiny commitment that will move a project forward. Make it very small to begin...
