I’ve had a post written for the workshop for about two weeks now. I haven’t posted it yet as I wanted to add images. It would take me 10 minutes to take and upload the images, but I’ve been putting it off.
This one little thing of adding a few images has added enough friction to publishing the post that I’ve put it off for weeks. I could (and probably will) just post it without images, as done is better than perfect and not done. But that tiny bit of extra friction has stopped me in my tracks.
Next time you find yourself stuck, try and see what is creating the friction and if its not critical just remove it. Remove all the friction and see how fast you can get things done.
