8 Steps to Pick Up Your Slack (And Complete Your Project Already)

I don’t know about you, but I’m the kind of person who would never leave a girlfriend waiting for me at a restaurant for our scheduled girl date, yet I tend to drop the ball on dates I book with myself all the time.

Can you relate?

Now, as the CEO of Mayi Carles Enterprise, I quickly learned I couldn’t just leave my projects hanging. I mean, I could. But no one’s gonna do the work for me. No ones gonna magically fill my vault with money. So I’ve learned a few tricks to keep my eye on the prize.

This is what I do to make sure I don’t bail on myself + finish my project already:

That’s how I pick up my slack when my perfectionistic tendencies are begging me to pause for “one last tweak”. Which we all know it’s really never only one last anything.

And that’s how you can drag yourself to the finish line.

And before you hyperventilate + tell me you couldn’t possible marry a deadline, you do know you can always improve things in second + third editions, right?

I rest my case.

Do this now:

  • Set reasonable time limits to complete projects.
  • Settle for as-good-as-can-be in the time available.
  • Launch before you’re ready.

In the comments let me know what you’re working on + when you’re gonna launch it.

You got this!

  1. Mayi linda!
    Mi proyecto, ¿recuerdas cuál? Lo tendré terminado en la segunda quincena de mayo, ¡por fin! Está quedando bien pero tengo miedo.Te busco después…

  2. Love the advice in this video– I laughed so hard at ‘Harry Potter Mayi’. Also, Olivia’s room is the cutest!

  3. Mayi, this was a very timely and inspirational video. I especially resonated with the part about “doing research” and perfectionist tendencies.

    Olivia is adorable – enjoy her!
