Break It Down, Write It Down

After the rush of getting married, a honeymoon, a name change and finding homes for the gifts, we are left with the task of writing the thank you letters to our guests.  Contrary to many people, I do not mind writing thank you letters.  In fact, the wording comes rather effortlessly for me.  

Regardless of the ease I find in writing the letters, sitting down to do them all at once is neither realistic or appealing to me.  Instead I have put it on my task list to write five thank you letters per week.  Breaking down the task and holding myself accountable for making progress I am more likely to finish the letters.

Break your projects down into manageable tasks.  Don’t overwhelm yourself with a large project when making the step is just one part of the whole process.  For the project of writing thank you letters, I have the tasks of purchasing paper and envelopes, purchasing stamps, composing my list of people to send letters to, then writing the letters, and finally mailing the letters.  

Have friends and coworkers hold you accountable for making progress with your project.  You are more likely to succeed with a support system!
