Pique Emails

  • Break down your wins

    It’s easy—in coaching and life—to default to talking about our challenges and problems.

    But I want to encourage you to cultivate the practice of looking at what’s working, too. 

    Imagine a sales floor or a locker room. Individuals and teams watch winning game tape, not just losing game tape, and dissect deals won as much as deals lost. 

    You might be used to picking apart and analyzing your losses in life, but how often do you do evaluations and reviews on your successes and wins?

    Do you really know how and why you’ve gotten the great results that you have in a certain area of your life, like your health, career, or relationship?

    Or does part of you feel like it was chance or luck or a lightning strike of inspiration that can’t easily be replicated?

    Coaching is about showing you how your thinking creates your feelings, which create your inactions or inactions, which create your results.

    By looking at wins (read: desired results), you can amplify and replicate them. Who the heck wouldn’t want that?

    Here are some questions to get you started:

    • What’s working? (Free write in response to this.) 
    • What is the last awesome result that I created and what actions did I take to get it?
    • What am I believing in an area of my life that’s going well? 
    • Why did this opportunity “fall in my lap”?
    • What am I doing differently than before that’s producing results?

    Then? Go do more of what you came up with. 


  • Monday Hour One pro tips

    Note: New to Monday Hour One? You’ll want to read this post first. 

    5 pro tips for your Monday Hour One practice

    I’m sharing five pro tips that will help you take your Monday Hour One practice to the next level:

    1. Be your own project manager
    2. Schedule from the right place
    3. Check in with Future You
    4. Choose, then have your own back
    5. Bring in Oprah

    Be your own project manager

    Hat tip to my amazing client Brad* (name changed) for this idea. He was able to stay objective about the results of his Monday Hour One practice by pretending that he has a project manager named Chad. Chad is responsible for generating the Monday Hour One plan and scheduling it; Brad then executes on it.

    When Chad overschedules or doesn’t set Brad up for success, Brad can just calmly go talk to Chad and ask him to tweak things slightly moving forward. No big drama about how Brad sucks or isn’t cut out to be a business owner.

    Schedule from the right place

    Thanks to another client for helping me uncover this insanely helpful tip. She was struggling with her Monday Hour One follow through, so I asked how she’s feeling when she’s setting up her schedule for the week. She replied, “I’m super hopeful when I’m doing it!”

    We pinpointed that that was the issue: She was scheduling from a place of “I hope I get this done,” vs a mindset of “I’m going to do everything that I schedule, no matter what.” So check in with yourself: Are you hopeful or are you committed when scheduling?

    Check in with Future You

    At the end of your Monday Hour One scheduling block, time-travel to meet with Future You, who exists at 5pm on that Friday.

    Does that person approve of how you scheduled the week? Were you generous with downtime? Did you schedule in alignment with your overall life priorities? Did you anticipate all of the obstacles that you could, and strategize for how to solve them effectively?

    Practice looking out for Future You at all times; this strengthens your relationship with yourself.

    Choose, then have your own back

    You will go off your Monday Hour One plan at some point. It’s 100% going to happen. When it does, your work is to notice that you’re making a decision (even if it feels like it’s just happening to you), then support yourself on that decision.

    Here’s an example: You get a call that someone in your family is sick, which disrupts your carefully scheduled afternoon. If you’re going to veer off your schedule to help them out, love your reasons and have your own back on your decision. This eliminates any guilt or resentment.

    Bring in Oprah

    One of the biggest things that people push back on with Monday Hour One is allocating a certain amount of time to a task and sticking with it. People often say that they can’t predict this. I’ll start by saying that it takes a lot of trial and error.

    Now, let’s say that you allocate 30 minutes to work on writing an email to your list, but you’re not sure if it might take longer.

    If I told you that Oprah was going to walk through your door and give you one million dollars if you finished it in 30 minutes, would you? (99.9% of people say yes at this point, but sometimes someone sassy will say no.)

    The point is, if you had a compelling reason (like💰💰💰), you’d get that shit done. Make your commitment to yourself your compelling reason.

    Which tip did you need to hear?

  • Ripple effects

    I want to tell you a story about taking action, using anti-racism work as an example.

    You may have seen my Instagram post, with the words “I don’t know” on the image.

    I called myself out for indulging and spinning in confusion about how to do anti-racism work, instead of actually taking action.

    After that post, I got to work thinking of how I could be more anti-racist in my business, and one idea that I came up with was to earmark a scholarship spot in my coaching programs for someone doing racial justice work.

    I included it in one email, and boom: A client passed the email to her friend, who is a Black woman doing incredible work on increasing access to advanced directives (read: legal documents like living wills) among Black Americans. That woman then passed it to her friend, who is doing work that raises up the music of Black women.

    I spent a weekend intensive with these two women and three others, watching the joy, frustration, angst, and love cross their faces, like it does with all of my clients who are breaking through procrastination and finishing projects.

    And I realized this: I took a teeny, tiny step (one email), and it gained momentum far beyond me.

    I’m hesitant to share this. I don’t want to tokenize these women, reducing them to only their skin color.

    I don’t want to assume that people of color doesn’t have the same financial means necessary to pay full price; that in and out itself is problematic.

    And I don’t want to glorify white people for taking tiny baby steps and calling it good.

    But what I do want to emphasize is that one small action can have ripple effects.

    It’s true in anti-racism work; it’s true in all of life.

    If you don’t know what to do, do something and see if it works.

    And while I have you, I’d love your help filling the next scholarship spot.

    There’s a scholarship spot for the next round of Half-Finished to Done, LIVE (which kicks off on August 17th) and it’s earmarked for someone who is doing racial justice work.

    If that is you or someone you know, would you shoot me an email and let me know? Thanks in advance!

    P.S.This story has been shared with permission from both women. We talked about how to be a better ally, and they both said “Share this story.”


  • How to know you’re ready for coaching

    This post is inspired by Ramit Sethi of I Will Teach You How to Be Rich. He has no fear of getting a little sassy to make a point, and I love his no-B.S. style. 

    All that to say: Prepare for some straightforwardness 😂 

    I’ve done a ton of free mini coaching sessions and free 30-minute consults (<– Shameless plug) and I’m pretty dang accurate at predicting who’s actually going to invest in coaching and who’s not.

    (Read: Who’s going to drag things out or ghost me after their consult 😬 ) 

    I’m sharing this with you for three reasons:

    • It’s a good chance to be really honest with yourself about where you are currently, and own it if you’re not ready to invest in coaching.
    • I’ll be sharing tips on how to become a dream client, from the jump. Not for my sake (well, a little bit for my sake!) but for yours. It will save you so much money and heartbreak in future purchasing decisions, I promise. 
    • Selfishly, this saves me time, because it helps people self-select out before we even hop on a call.

    6 signs that you might not be ready for coaching

    You’re relying on me to prove myself to you

    This can show up in a few different ways. If you’re very focused on my credentials, why I chose my pricing, or knowing the exact results that all of my clients have had, it likely means that you’re seeking to qualify or disqualify me as an “expert.”

    This indicates that at least part of you thinks I’m responsible for your results, which, sadly, I can’t control. 

    Focusing on me takes your attention away from your results and what you’ll need to do in order to create them, using the tools I provide to you. 

    To be clear, I’m not saying don’t ask questions! Just know why you’re really asking them, and what you’re really trying to find out or assure yourself of.

    If this is you: In consults, I’m very direct when I sense that someone is focusing on me instead of themselves. Be prepared to dig into why you’re asking the questions you’re asking, and what might be below them. (Hint: It’s usually fear and doubt.) 

    You hold back, thinking that I haven’t earned your trust yet

    I’ll start by saying that I do believe I should earn your trust, and I practice that on every single consult. 

    But the irony of this mindset is that, when you hold back and don’t self-disclose, I can’t coach you as well. 

    So, you’ll end up proving yourself right, because I won’t have a lot to go on. At the end of the call, you’ll likely think that I didn’t fully earn your trust or prove enough value.

    If this is you: Remember that I can only coach you on what you’re willing to say. The more you’re willing to say out loud, the more we have to work with, and the more value you’ll get. Nothing phases me, so don’t be afraid to let it all hang out.   

    You’ve signed up for multiple programs and courses at the same time

    I work with a lot of people who identify as “course hoarders.” Often, the underlying thought here is “These things should be able to fix my problem.”

    The problem is, this puts the onus on the product or service and actually disempowers you. Remember: These courses and programs are tools, but you’re the master craftsperson. 

    Enrolling in multiple things at the same time also splits your attention, so you’re unlikely to get the full results that you would if you focused on one thing at a time. 

    If this is you: I recommend implementing a course purchasing hiatus and choosing one thing to go all in on, to completion. I’m always happy to consult on how to do this.

    You have a strong aversion to group coaching

    This one is fascinating. I—perhaps like you—want 1:1 coaching sometimes, because I think I’m a special snowflake who needs very personalized attention for my very special problem 🙂 

    But here’s the wild thing: Anyone I’ve spoken to who has rejected the idea of group coaching hasn’t enrolled in 1:1 coaching, either

    Here’s what I suspect: Dismissing a group coaching program indicates that you think your problem is so unique that it can’t possibly be tackled in a group.

    And I think that, deep down, it’s really the belief that your problem is so unique, that it can’t be tackled at all.

    It will be hard for you to trust that anyone can help you (even 1:1) when you’re in that place. 

    If this is you: I encourage you to entertain the idea that your problem isn’t as unique as you think it is. In fact, it’s just a combo of five things, always: Circumstance, thought, feeling, action, result. Lucky for you, I’m trained in how to break down any problem into those five components, then solve for it. 

    You get upset when I sell

    Look, I get it. The online business world can be scammy and sales-y as hell. I totally advise using caution when purchasing from self-proclaimed experts, including me. 

    But get curious if you have a strong negative reaction when I sell. 

    This can look like dismissing my free 30-minute consult offer as a “no-value sales pitch,” being upset when I send marketing emails, or thinking everything I offer should be free. 

    If this is you: If you just want free resources, I encourage you to be upfront about that. Let me know and I’ll be sure to pay attention to what I send your way. Consider it a win/win to be upfront 🙂 But also remember that there’s a connection between having skin in the game, financially, and how committed you’ll be to the process of change. 

    You don’t crack a smile 

    I’ve noticed a strong correlation between coachability and ability to laugh at oneself. 

    This work can be heavy, no doubt, but I love to bring fun, laughter, and lightheartedness to all sessions. 

    If this is you: I encourage you to start noticing when you’re taking yourself very seriously. How might a dose of lightheartedness shake things up for you and help you see things differently?

    Note: Feeling unable to laugh at all might also be a sign of depression. If you suspect that you have undiagnosed depression, I encourage you to seek a licensed therapist. 

    Remember: If any of these 6 descriptions fits you, that’s okay.

    We actually can build a very successful coaching relationship, if you’re willing to let me call out these thought processes as I see them. 

    The true test is booking a 30-minute consult and seeing what unfolds 🙌

    And, as promised: 

    6 tips for investing in yourself wisely

    Sell yourself

    Absorb free content from creators and coaches—as much as you can get your hands on—then choose to believe that their paid content will be even more valuable. Show up to the consult expecting to say yes to moving forward.

    Pro tip: I keep a list of people I plan to purchase from in the future, because I love their free work. They’ve been selling me for years, and I don’t need any more convincing.

    Be selective about your purchases, and go all in 

    My rule is that I don’t enroll in something unless I’m ready to participate fully. Once I’m committed, I am committed, and I put the onus on myself to suck every bit of value out of the program or course.

    Commit to making a 10x return on your investment (100x if you’re feeling wild)

    I got this idea from Jaclyn Mellone, a coach. Now, when I enroll in anything, I commit to making back at least 10 times the amount I invested.

    A $899 product like Half-Finished to Done, LIVE? Guarantee yourself that you’ll earn at least $8,990 because of it. 

    For what it’s worth, I think this is 100% possible for anyone.  If you doubt your ability to do this, let’s coach on it. It’s a fun mind-expanding exercise.

    Trust the expert 

    Buy from people you trust, and then trust them. Enough said. 

    Buy from a pro/pro place

    I always recommend that potential clients do a pro/pro list about the decision to move forward with a Pique Coaching program. 

    This process moves you out of fear and doubt and puts you in a place of excitement and opportunity.

    Pay and book right away  

    After a consult, go and enroll immediately. Practice being decisive and taking action. (This skill will serve you well in all of life.) 

    This is a sign of respect to the person you’re buying from, but also yourself and your Future Self. 

    Enjoy being a dream client!


  • What idea would you go all in on?

    What idea would you go all in on, if you trusted that you would follow through?

    My clients asked themselves this question. Here’s what some of them came up with:

    • The musical album that had been on the “dream list” since she was seven
    • The payroll project that would increase collection of outstanding patient balances from 1% to up to 30%
    • The photography website that would highlight gorgeous, heartfelt photos of inspiring women
    • The Tarot course that would help people in their personal relationships
    • The data dashboard that would improve how everyone at the institution digests information
    • The community that would empower Black Americans to create living wills and other advanced directives

    What’s your answer?

    Almost every person I speak to knows what idea they would focus on. (Or, they have a ton of awesome possibilities, and just need to whittle it down).

    But the lack of trust in themselves is what stands in their way. Can you relate?

    Think about it like this: What if you could have a brilliant idea, make a thorough project plan, and then execute on that project plan, all the way to completion?

    The best place to learn this skill set is through Half-Finished to Done, LIVE.

    If you want to learn how to take your personal and professional projects from half-finished to done, consistently, it might be for you.

  • Monday Hour One FAQs

    If you’ve already attended one of the free Monday Hour One workshops, you’re well on your way to an incredible Monday Hour One practice.

    Remember: You can learn to be on or off, not in that awkward in-between, “dim” place.

    Here are my answers to the most frequently asked Monday Hour One questions:

    Do I need to do this on Monday morning?

    Nope. You can do it any time, but I do recommend that you choose a date and time and stick to it.

    How much stuff should I put on my calendar? 

    The short answer: You’ll have to experiment with this for yourself.

    The longer answer: I’m not about hustling 24/7 (in fact, I firmly believe you should schedule down time first), but I actually do think that you can likely handle more than you think you can.

    When you remove the constant stress of having to choose what to do in the moment, you just get to work. It’s so much more efficient, which means you can often take on more.

    How many tasks I put on my calendar depends on what mode I’m in: Maintenance mode, growth mode, or launch mode. 

    What should I do about small tasks? What about big ones?

    If you have very small tasks, I recommend putting them together into a “miscellaneous” time block, to be done with other small tasks.

    I “batch” these miscellaneous blocks based on the type of task. For example: Tasks in my email marketing platform, email tasks, financial tasks, etc.

    “Too big” is when you sit down and don’t know what your immediate first action step is.

    I always ask, “Would Future Me who is doing this work block know exactly what to do?”

    How should I handle recurring things?

    I keep a running list of recurring things I know I want to schedule every week. (Morning pages, meditation, groceries, etc.)

    Decision fatigue happens, so if scheduling recurring things at the same time each week frees up your brain space and creative energy, why not?

    Many people think this is constraining, but I think of it like this: The more I plan, the more energy I have available for what I truly want to accomplish.

    When you hit a “flow state” in a task, do you extend the task or stop at the end of your allotted time and go on to the next task on your list?

    I love this question. People who have experienced “flow”—that place where you’re so engaged that you lose track of time—tend to crave it. We also tend to see it as a fleeting thing that we can’t quite pin down.

    Here’s my philosophy: I want to be able to produce a flow state on demand. This puts me back in control, instead of being at the whim of flow.

    So, at the end of my scheduled block, I move on, knowing that I can tap into flow at (almost) any time.

    I use my guide for how to get into a deep work state in 15 minutes to channel flow on demand.

    What should I do about unexpected interruptions?

    Start here: Ask yourself to get honest about what percent of “unexpected interruptions” are truly unexpected.

    I asked a client this question recently, and she admitted that she could likely anticipate about 95% of the things she had previously been calling unexpected.

    Then ask yourself to come up with strategies both for handling every interruption that you can anticipate, and for the interruptions that you couldn’t have anticipated.

    I love the “Accept, reject, counteroffer” method: When someone interrupts you, take back your power by making an active choice on whether to accept, reject, or counteroffer their request.

    Pro tip: Be sure to schedule in overflow time, to accommodate things that will inevitably pop up. (Be sure to check in with yourself to make sure that it’s actually a priority.)

    How should I process new incoming tasks throughout the week?

    I recommend adding them to one running list—I keep mine in a Google Doc.

    This reassures your brain that you’ve got it covered and won’t forget.

    If you think it needs to get done this week, pause to make sure you like that decision.

    I have SO much circling around in my head; I think it will take me more than an hour to organize.

    During your 60-minute Monday Hour One block, as you’re making your list of things to schedule for the week, consider scheduling a longer block to sit down and organize all of those big ideas. (And check out my coaching program, Half-Finished to Done, LIVE. Shameless plug!) 

    How do I get back on track if I fall off?

    Notice how you think and talk about it:

    • “My whole day is shot.”
    • “Everything got derailed.”
    • “Life just happens.”
    • “I just didn’t get to any of it.”
    • “Everything just snowballed.”

    These kinds of thoughts do two things: Make things outside of your control, and conflate a ton of different moments into one big problem.

    Track back to the first turning point. Where is the first place that you got off plan, and why?

    Remember: Every single moment is a decision. Pick one decision to understand more fully.

    I’m struggling with the concept of stating something will take a certain amount of time—then sticking to it.

    You will get this wrong, a bunch of times. Let’s all agree on that 🙂

    Now, here are a few ideas:

    • Break down tasks into the smallest possible action steps, like “Open Google Doc.” This helps you understand the task, and all of its pieces.
    • Once you’ve done that, ask yourself what obstacles might crop up between you and finishing the task. Strategize for those.
    • Pay attention to why you didn’t wrap up the task when you said you would. Were you thinking it’s not yet perfect? Did you allow yourself to get distracted? Did you not truly understand the task enough to start with? Were you afraid that if you walked away, all of your good ideas would disappear?
    • Bring in Oprah: If she promised you a million dollars if you got it done in the time you allocated, would you get it done?

    What if I don’t “feel like it”?

    Then you get to make a decision: Either be the person who honors their calendar and follow through, or choose not to do it, but make sure you love your reasons.

    If you do decide to follow through, ask yourself how you want to feel as you do the work, and what you would need to believe to feel that way.

    Try going back to Past You, who thought this task was important enough to put on your calendar. Why?

    What if I have to turn down cool opportunities?

    UGH. You might have to. I struggle here, too. Here are the thoughts that I choose to think:

    • “Saying no to the good makes space for the great.”
    • “I’ve never run out of good ideas or opportunities. They’re a renewable resource.”
    • “Trying everything means nothing gets done spectacularly.” 
    • “Every opportunity I turn down opens up space for someone else.” 
    • “I can say no now, and yes later.”

  • My quarantine best practices

    In my recent post, Thriving during quarantine?, I mentioned that I would be sharing some of my strategies for managing life during COVID. I suggest taking the strategies that work for you, and leaving the rest. 

    Can’t wait to hear what works for you!

    Seeing life in modes or stages

    Way back in the day, I realized the power of seeing life in stages or modes, instead of seeking perfect balance at all times. (A surefire recipe for stress.)

    For me, this means seeing COVID at the time to press pause on things like dating, building an in-person community, and killing it at the gym, and focusing instead on getting my business streamlined and automated. I name this period “business sprinting” and when we’re free to move about freely again, I’ll likely move into “business maintenance mode” for awhile.

    For you, it might be that COVID is the most intense period you’ve had in a long time. Or it’s offered you down time. It might be it’s the time to undertake a big project. It might be that it’s time to step back from your business.

    Recognizing and naming the period that you’re in is like a permission slip for your brain to accept where you are, instead of resisting reality.

    Here are some ideas:

    • Growth mode
    • Launch mode
    • Maintenance mode
    • Sprint mode
    • Chaos mode

    Using the Monday Hour One process

    Every Monday morning, I plan out my whole week, including my deep work sessions. Doing this helps me kick off my week with purpose, dedication, and intention.

    It also ensures that I’m not on “the dim switch,” which is the place where you’re neither working nor relaxing. I’m either fully on or fully off. 

    📢 Quick interruption! I’m hosting several workshops on how to master the Monday Hour One process. Learn more and register here. Now back to the show.

    Doing morning pages and/or thought downloads

    Every morning, I do three pages of free writing. I consider this my mental hygiene routine.

    A client of mine recently started morning pages and she commented that it’s “easier to observe [your thoughts] at a distance.”

    Full disclosure: My three pages take me an hour, which I realize isn’t feasible for many people. I recommend that you write what you can, even if it’s one sentence. (And if you don’t want to write, that one sentence can be “I don’t want to write.” 

    Take action: Listen to this podcast episode about morning pages, then do your own.

    Entertaining “ridiculous” ideas

    A few months ago, I joined a program called Best Month Ever with a coach named Jaclyn. The premise was simple: Have your best business revenue month ever.

    It sounds like a ridiculous undertaking during a pandemic, but it was so powerful to be surrounded by other people who also believed that it was possible. (And I did indeed have my best month ever.)

    There’s something ballsy and almost taboo about taking on a big challenge like this right now, like a naughty little secret. 

    For my clients, the “ridiculous” idea for them is quitting procrastination, once and for all. 

    Take action: What “ridiculous” idea or challenge would light you up during this time? Finally finishing that big project? Losing that extra weight? Taking a sabbatical from your business? 

    Being part of like-minded communities

    In addition to the Best Month Ever program, I’ve also invested in other programs to be surrounded by people who are directing their energy toward the same things as me.

    I joined Bank Boost to be with people who are being conscious about their earning and spending during this time, and a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion coaching program with Mica McGriggs to be with other white women who want to incorporate anti-racism into their businesses.

    Take action: If you’re here, my guess is that you’re looking to ramp up your productivity, quit procrastinating, and finish projects. May I suggest that you check out Half-Finished to Done, LIVE?

    Here are a few other things that have contributed to my mental health during quarantine:

  • Your project matters. Here’s why

    I bet you need to hear this: Your half-finished project—the one that you’ve put on the back burner—matters.

    (Will you judge me if I tell you that I teared up while writing that line?☝️)

    You might be like, “Cristina, you don’t even know me or my project.”

    But I don’t care. Your project matters in this world.

    I don’t care how selfish or trivial you think it is; the truth is that you have things you want to do, or create, or say, or teach, or feel.

    And I believe with all of my heart that one small project can be a gateway to a version of you that you can’t quite imagine yet; the version of you who’s confident, courageous, and focused enough to say and do and create and teach and feel those things.

    And the world needs more of that.

    I also want to address the 🐘 in the room: We’re in the midst of unprecedented times. For some people, this is absolutely not the time to focus on changing life-long procrastination habits and becoming a focused, productive project finisher.

    For others, there is literally no better time than now.

    Which one are you?

    P.S. Here’s how one client described our work: “It’s like having a kick-ass owner’s manual/training program for the the most radically powerful piece of technology you will ever have: Your mind.” Heck yes.

  • How much value could you create in an hour?

    Do you find yourself waiting on the “focus fairy”?

    You love the feeling of being in flow, but it feels like it’s out of your control; like it comes and goes with no warning.

    If you can master focused, deep work—that is, manage distractions and interruptions and stay single-mindedly focused on one high-impact task—then you can do anything. Seriously; this one skill is not to be underestimated.

    Here’s how to measure the impact that this skill could have in your life: Ask yourself how much value you could create with one focused hour.

    You could write a chapter in that course. Put together that weekly meal plan. Write 50 follow up emails. Send 10 pitches. Plan a webinar. Create 2 months of email content. Organize your home.

    How much value—in the form of time, money, and energy—would these actions create in your life?

    (I get giddy for you, thinking of all of the value you could create.)

    This is why I teach a signature method for how to get into a deep work state in 15 minutes.

    Here’s what people who have used the 15-minute deep work method say:

    “OMG this is the greatest gift EVER..This is life changing.”

    “Embarrassingly, I got more done in an hour than I had all week!” (He says embarrassing; I say amazing.)

    “I just did the entire deep work state process….and guess what? It was fabulous! Thanks. Lots done in 45 minutes.”

  • Five years from now…

    I want you to think of every single personal and professional project that you’re likely to do over the next five years.

    Think: Any and all projects, big or small, related to your career, business, personal finances, hobbies, community, or health.

    Losing weight. Starting a side business. Creating a course. Writing a screenplay or book. Doing social justice work in your community. Automating your investments. Organizing your home. Recording that album.

    What if you could improve your project planning and execution process by just 1%, using the signature methods that I can teach you? 

    What would that be worth to you, in every single area of your life, over the course of five years?

    I’m not gonna lie—when I phrase it this way, I literally laugh out loud with delight at what a ridiculous deals my Half-Finished to Done coaching programs are (they’re priced from $499-$799). 

    Here’s what my clients say:

    “I have to share this with you because I am literally walking on sunshine right now! I did a deep work state and did the first block of tasks from my project plan. I got everything done that I wanted to, with time to spare. I truly feel I can attribute this extra time to the fact that I had such a detailed list of exactly what I had to do. I didn’t finish a task and then go back to wondering what I wanted to do next…”

    “Thanks so much! I realized while doing this that I generally start making a ‘big picture plan’ and then I get annoyed by planning and just start doing … and never even go back to the plan. This was a great exercise in sticking with making a plan from start to finish and really thinking through all the steps!”
