You have a dream and you want to bring it into reality, you make the plan, write whole pages with to-do lists but then you lose your motivation, and you end up not progressing at all and/or even starting.
Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

Let’s identify the potential causes of why this is happening:

Cause # 1 We no longer have “the big picture” or that set of enthusiasm that we had at the beginning, and that we do not stick to the initial plan.

Cause#2 We dream with our eyes open, we lose our time compass, we forget to get the work done and postpone it continuously, I’ll do it in 1 hour, tomorrow, after watching the tv show, I’m not in the mood, I’m too tired now, tomorrow will be a better day, and the list goes on…

Cause#3 You wait for your initial motivation to come with all the adrenaline and enthusiasm.
As the inspiration came to you for the first time, be sure that it will come to you again, but if in all this time you will follow the plan and stick to it, in the end, you will have things done.
Otherwise, if you do nothing and wait for that motivation to come again, it will come to you, you will postpone it, and you will wait and so on, and in the end, you will not have achieved anything. and you will get where you left off.

Cause#4 The perfectionism holds you in place — you want everything to come out perfectly from the first try, just think about how far you were now if you started when you had the idea and do not postpone putting it into practice, and you will regret it later if you don’t put your boots back to work in this second.

Better done than delayed perfection, after you bring your dream into reality you can improve it, but if you waste time thinking that this is not the perfect moment, you will never achieve anything, you will not evolve, you will always remain the same.
