Why do we, as humans, tend to give up half way?
Half way through any project/task/life ambition, I lose all that initial enthusiasm, look back and see how far I’ve come, and instead of feeling elated I just feel tired.
And it’s not just me: look at all the construction projects where the punch list drags on and on and on. Or the diets that were started in January and abandoned by February.
So what can we do about it? I think the sagging, wilting feeling is inevitable. Perhaps the only thing to do is to take a breath and start again, as if from scratch. Maybe even reconfirm, or redefine, the plan. Or at least pull out the plan and have a look at it.
That’s where I’m going to start and I’ll let you know how it goes. In the meantime if you have some suggestions for getting through the dip I would love to hear them!
P.S. Does everyone get post-exhibition blues?
