“Tracking my excuses helped me see that there are no perfect days for being creative. The ideal conditions for completing any long-term project simply do not exist.”
This is such a simple idea and yet it could be life-changing if you struggle to get things done.
Leigh Stein explains how tracking your excuses will help you get more done and breaks down a tactic she used to write a novel that can be applied to any project.
She set up a spreadsheet titled “You Can Write A Novel” and for each day documented the number of words she wrote or the reason she didn’t write. Tracking her excuses changed everything.
