I have a project I'm working on. I guess my challenge is that I've been working on it for 8 months now and I'm still not even launched. Kinda is a downer. Seems like what happens is there's just ENDLESS issues.

Like one after another after another. Im slowly getting threw the obstacles one by one. Someone who I hired just quit today. So I have to find someone new. It's like never ending problems, and I'm not even launched.

I'm just trying to stay motivated enough so that I can at least get to the point where I'm launched and actually open for business. It's super important too because I don't even have any income right now. I'm kinda banking on this project to hopefully take off and to make a living off of.

Even then the work really is just starting. From then I still have to do a lot of advertising which is gonna be an ongoing effort.

But what do I do to just keep motivated until I launch this? And what could I do to try and move faster toward being launched?

Don't ask me.

I've got a half finished book in my desk that's been waiting on me to finish it for over 3 years.

Alien spit, and/or a good whiskey sour.

Did that help?

Well I'm not sure if this is a good strategy but it has worked for me. I just chip away at any project I'm doing. Just a bit at a time. Doesn't have to be much really. And some days it will turn out you get a lot done. Others you hardly get anything done. But it's like "Rome wasn't built in a day". So you just chip away tiny bit at a time day after day and eventually what once was a big raw block of granit becomes the statue of David. It's just frustrating though when it all seems so close, yet so far. ahhhhhh

What kind of business?
Just focus on the income you'll be getting. That's a good motivator.

Thats when you take a break form it. Gain fresh perspective. You have been working on it so long, whats a couple days? It will be there when you get back.

I usually talk to a venture capitalist and see if the project is fundable outside normal means. If they like the project even though they might not want to invest; I redouble my efforts to at least get the project started in some form.
Getting encouragement from others is always helpful.

If you don't get the encouragement.....perhaps you should bail out before you get in to deep.

Well it's a website I'm working on. It's something new so there's a lot of bugs and little things that have to be ironed out and fixed. Just a lot of work. I'm pretty close now but I'm just very anxious. Like I wanted this launched weeks ago already. But I'm still not even at launch. Even then there's so many issues to work out. And also that nagging thought that what if it doesn't really catch on like I think it will. I spent 8 months on this already. But I think if it catches on it might really grow big. I guess it's like I was saying it's like I have the statue carved out, but now all the refining that needs to be done in order to truely make it ready to show the world, is really aggravating to say the least. arrrhhhhhhh

If you've worked on it for 8 months, I'm sure you feel it will be succesful or you wouldn't have wasted your time. Now get to those refinements. I know you can do it! Just sit there and throw yourself into it. Listen to some music to put you in a creative state of mind. Good luck!

I know the feeling. I have a painting that has been sitting here for months eyeballing me, and I just can't seem to find the motivation to finish it.

So when somoene comes up with a good solution to your problem, maybe I will take it too.

Music. There is a genre for every mood. Music can inspire. A long walk in nature to clear your head. Breathe deeply.
