“Just Start” The Passion Planner Motto

Projects can beat us up. They get too big. We get tired.

The “Just Start” sticker (photo above) came with my 2019 Passion Planner. I stuck it on the window frame right in front of me at my desk. Then, after a few days, I forgot it.

Sometime later, I was on a conference call and someone talked about just starting. I thought, I know I have a sticker like that somewhere. Well, thank goodness it wasn’t a snake…

It’s true, Just Start is the key. On a project, it’s more like a Fresh Start (I’ve seen that somewhere too. Is it Orange Juice?) because Just Start has daily activation power!

I meant to Just Start this blog on New Year’s Day. Oops! I missed the sticker that was right in front of me.

But, hey, today’s not too late to write about a great project tip from Darren Handy’s book, The Compound Effect. He said something like, it’s not enough to make a plan; the key to success is tracking that plan.

Tracking! Brilliant!

Tracking is effectively helping me get my awesome online business writing course up and running. I now track the hours I spend on this latest “big” project. Then, I share my weekly progress and next-step plan with my fellow entrepreneur, Rob. Now, I’m staying with my project and gaining hope every day.

Tracking! Yes!
