Perhaps You Need A Little Encouragement…

If you’re having trouble getting started or staying with a project, here’s a lesson from legendary Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham

The impresario “encouraged” Mick Jagger and Keith Richards to write original material by locking them in a room and refusing to feed them until they delivered two new songs.

It may be time for a new approach to your efforts.

Don’t take a break.

Don’t grab that second cup.

Lock yourself in until the job is done.
