Or as mentioned in Bill's post below if you do TOO much you also may get nothing! Like his point of you getting in your own way from time to time as we can become our own worst enemy. The other point that Bill makes runs along the lines of paralyses / analysis.. at some point you need to start the ball rolling or it will just sit there.
Are you the bump in the road keeping you from getting where you want to go?
Often the most difficult step in getting out of one's own way is recognizing that you are indeed, in it. When you encounter problems in achieving your goals, carefully consider whether or not you are the source of those problems.
Most of the time we get in our own way by trying to do too much all at once. By working hard at trying to do everything we end up accomplishing very little. Concentrating on one or two projects at a time will actually increase your chances of getting what you want.
A sure sign of a person getting in their own way is when they are working very hard, but not getting any closer to achieving their goals. (This is also one of the most frequent effects of not having a written plan.)
Many people are reluctant to actually put their plans down on paper. Putting plans to paper is the first physical step to take towards achieving one's desires. Without a written plan most people will start a project but soon be distracted by the many little things that pop up.
To move forward you must take the proper actions at the proper times.
Once you prioritize which project(s) you will tackle, you must focus on what it will take to really do those projects. Create step-by-step plans for what you will do and when you will do them.
Working towards your goals may not always be easy. You may not have fun every moment as you make your way forward but, overall, you should enjoy what you are doing because it's what you want to do. If that's not true then you definitely need to re-evaluate your goals or how you are pursuing them.
All Star Coaching thought for today: If you do nothing, you get nothing.
Have a productive weekend.
