Even so..carry on.

Review your chart, stay on course. 049 Rush Creek (3)Remember to build in delays in your time line for the unexpected.

Begin the Hike, Move Forward

You know the next steps and begin taking action, building momentum and seeing your big project moving through to completion in smaller, more manageable mini-projects.

Once you achieve completing your mini-projects one after another, you feel accomplished. Your project work is fundamentally easier because there is momentum tumbling forward.

Be kind to thyself. Don’t forget to celebrate your achievements!
