Planning to Fail

I remember the week vividly. By Friday afternoon, I was to submit our forecast and budget model for the upcoming year, probably my single biggest corporate project ever. In the 16 hour days, I couldn't find the time or energy for writing - and I broke my habit. That was two months ago, and the block staring back at me has grown bigger by the day. I couldn't figure out how to get started again. Has that ever happened to you? Perhaps you were working out consistently, and then an injury or illness forced you to the sidelines for what should have been a couple of weeks. Instead, you sat out a few seasons. Or perhaps you were eating well, and then a vacation messed up your routine, and you haven't been able to find it again. You're not alone. It happens to all of us. And I think there's something we can do about it.
