Not for the first time, I find myself 80% of the way towards my deadline, with a big chunk of work done, only to find that the very foundation of my project doesn’t work. And I have to start over. From the top. When I thought I was nearing the finish line. When I barely have any time left.
So what do I have to do?
When I’m scared, I remind myself that this is the ONE thing I can do well. The one thing I CAN do well. I can be hopeless in almost all other parts of my life (I just had to sell my car and so came face-to-face with the depths of my incompetence several times over the course of a week) but I can do THIS. And I’m going to be fucking brilliant and pull this fucking thing off.
