I have been very productive over the past month. Very productive.
I finished 3 shawls:
Next up was the Hilde hat, and then several Nettie hats:
Aside from the knitting, I have been blogging regularly and even published two patterns with picture tutorials.
If you think I am taking it easy now, you are mistaken. Over the past few days I have been working on another hat pattern of which I have finished two prototypes, and a third prototype is laying flat to dry as I type this.
When it comes to knitting, designing and writing patterns, I am highly productive. I have no explanation how come.
Am I fully focussed, my goal is to finish a project as quickly as possible and move on to the next project without missing a beat.
Procrastination..? What the hell is that???
What is holding me back?
As productive as I am in knitting, there is one area where I am procrastinating like there is no tomorrow.
Not a day goes by and I am thinking about it.
Not a day goes by and I am asking myself why I didn’t work on it yet again.
And that my dear knitter is a project I have been stalling for the past 4 months: my website “gettingpurlywithit.com“.
Web designers and web developers have been working on my website and now I have to take action. But I haven’t been taking action at all.
AND I DON”T KNOW WHY!!!
Reasons for my procrastination
Am I afraid that you all won’t like it?
Am I setting the bar too high for myself?
Am I too much of a perfectionist?
Am I afraid to fail?
Oh, Lordy… I need your help on this one, my dear friends…
As from today, I need to work on my website so that it finally can be launched.
By coming Sunday, I must at least have given my web developer something to work on. Please, please, please hold me accountable for that.
I really need your encouragement in this one.
There. I asked for your encouragement. See, I am not perfect.
I have insecurities that plague me, and I am afraid of failing.
But didn’t I promise that I would reach for my highest potential?
I can reach it, I know it. But sometimes, I too need just a little bit of help and encouragement…
Thanks for reading and until the next entry! Wish me luck, I need it!
