Stuck in a Rut?

(I saved this question because it is a question that I have asked myself many times. I have lots of unfinished projects, so this is a perfect email for me!)

A morning email from Pat Sloan, asked the question,
"What do you do if you get stuck in a rut about a project?"

This is Pat Sloan's answer.

"So many times people ask me what to do if they get in a rut about a project.
I've been mulling this over, I even got solutions from my Guest Emily Herrick on my talk show last week (Listen HERE)
Last month at Instagram one question was to share your 'oldest UFO' and then I wondered.... WHY is it the oldest?
Ask yourself "Why don't I work on a project?" There is a reason.
It might be
* You felt you didn't have the skills needed, so got stuck
* You only have a little bit to do and for some reason don't work on it, maybe it's bulky and your table needs cleared before you have room to work on it.
* You actually have fallen 'out of love' with this project.
Here is my (Pat's) solution. 
1. Pick ONE item to deal with. NOT all of them... Just ONE. 
2. Pick a project you know you CAN decide on easily 
3. Evaluate your skills, I'll bet you have them now! (or take a great class to learn!) 
4. Fix whatever is keeping you from getting to it. Clear the table, make the binding, find the floss, or give it to someone else to do."
I LOVE Pat's ideas! 

It's time to Pick One!
