Organizing Your Projects & Staying Motivated to Work on Them | The BHooked Podcast Episode 79

Do you struggle with finding the motivation to finish a project?

My friend, you are not alone! We all need a little staying motivated through a long project sometimes. The afghan that’s been a WIP (work in progress) for three years; the scarf you started last summer that would currently only keep your daughter’s teddy bear warm. We all have them hiding in our house just waiting to become something great.

At any given time I have between 5 and 10 WIP’s, some of which have been around for months…or even longer. I dream up a new project and leave the old ones in the dust. It happens to the best of us! Today I’m here to not only tell you that it’s okay to have projects lingering around the house but also to share 13 different motivational tactics to help you power through when you need to just get it done.

Now if you haven’t done so already, click on that play button at the top of the page to dive in!
