go back to what worked

I’m working on a big research project. I’m writing the report. I keep getting stuck.

I haven’t done this style of writing for awhile. I haven’t done it this way before. I keep getting stuck.

But then I remember some tools.

have mercyI talk to someone who can help me think through the process.

I print drafts and go away from the computer to read them and revise them on paper.

I set timers for blocks of working time.

I remind myself that I’m not a failure, I’m doing hard work and hard work is….hard.

I’m telling you this because you might be getting stuck in other ways. Maybe even related to faith.

I just wanted to remind you to look for the tools that have helped in the past.
