If John Mayer, Norah Jones and Jewel had a threesome, and that threesome resulted in a baby, and that baby grew up to be far less talented than her three parents, and that quasi-talented person decided to record an album with some equipment in her basement, then my album of original music would be it!
Except…the album was never made. It’s a project that has been collecting cobwebs in my imagination.
A cobweb project is a very special personal, creative, or organizational task that you have been meaning to complete but never have. Whether the task is re-organizing your entire basement, backpacking in Europe for a month, or writing your first book, this project has the following components:
- It’s wildly important for you to complete.
- It’s has not been completed.
- You have several excuses for why it hasn’t been done.
Cobweb projects don’t get done because they are always met by resistance that is rooted in fear. The most common fears are of:
- creating an imperfect product subject to judgment and disappointment.
- the anticipated discomfort of discipline.
The process of completing a cobweb project is a mental game. If you play and win, your prize is a greater sense of balance and beauty in your life.
As promised in this post, I will occasionally update you on my progress with this cobweb project. My hope is that it will inspire you to complete yours.
