The worst thing to do is nothing. If your project is running out of steam, inspiration, finances or manpower – doing nothing (often called “waiting”) is the worst response. Waiting is an open invitation for fear to run your project. Worse still it keeps you from engaging with the reality of what will be.
As long as you are not actively working on something – you can have a million dreams about what it can be. In the middle of a project is not the time for these kind of dreams. When you commit to the trenches and do the work – your project starts taking shape. There are obviously some actions that are more effective than others, and through experience and discernment your actions become more focused. But any action is a step towards your finished project. It doesn’t have to be the perfect action – or even a very good one because action is infinitely better than inaction.
