  • Today we installed Fluent Booking by WP Manage Ninja. We installed them on 11 websites in the Life Long Productions network. We hooked them all up to Google Calendars and today we should be able to transfer all current bookings over from Acuity Scheduling. It will be great to streamline our guest forms, media releases, show reminders, and cancelations in our Fluent Forms and Fluent CRM which integrates nicely with Fluent Booking.


Setting up the Fluent Forms required me to go to Google Console and set up credentials for the Calendar to website connection using OAuth. This was a learning curve for me. It was very well documented in Fluent Booking so I was able to follow directions, but I kept telling myself “If you learn it now, it will take a few minutes, then you can never unlearn it, and you will know how to do this.”



I recorded my second show of the week with Shari Cedar, CEO and co-owner of AK Building Services (a Janitorial Cleaning company). And I felt like I was talking with an old friend. We really hit it off. Although we went through her agent, Jamie Levin to book her on the Ask a House Cleaner show, I asked her to stay in touch. I believe together we can do some great content collaborations.

I was a bit competitive in my workouts this morning. Didn’t plan on it, but swimming next to some younger, more fit swimmers, I found myself trying to outswim them at every turn. There were no prizes or anyone keeping score – I was just driving myself to go a little harder and faster.

Bouncing from Projects Leads to Burnout

Bouncing from project to project without finishing what you start can lead to burnout and discouragement for content creators. Here are some reasons why this happens:

Lack of Achievement

When you don’t complete your projects, you miss out on the satisfaction and sense of achievement that comes with finishing something. This can lead to feelings of inadequacy and disappointment.

Bouncing from Projects Leads to Overwhelm

Managing multiple ongoing projects can be overwhelming. It can lead to stress, anxiety, and the feeling that you’re constantly playing catch-up, which can contribute to burnout.

Diminished Quality

Rushing through projects or constantly switching between them can result in lower-quality work. This can be disheartening for content creators who take pride in their craft.

Loss of Focus

Continuously switching between projects can make it difficult to maintain focus and concentration on any one task. This can lead to decreased productivity and creativity.

Unfulfilled Expectations

If you start many projects with high expectations but never complete them, it can lead to a sense of unfulfilled potential and disappointment in yourself.

Bouncing from Projects Wastes Resources

Each project you start likely consumes time, energy, and resources. When you abandon projects, these resources go to waste, which can be demotivating and financially draining.

Reduced Audience Engagement

Inconsistent content creation can lead to a loss of audience engagement. Your audience may become disinterested if they don’t see regular and finished work from you.

Strategies to Avoid Burnout

  • Prioritize and Plan: Set clear priorities and create a realistic project plan. Focus on one or a few projects at a time to ensure you can give them the attention they deserve.
  • Break Tasks into Smaller Steps: Divide your projects into smaller, manageable tasks. This makes it easier to track progress and maintain motivation.
  • Set Milestones: Establish milestones or deadlines for your projects. Achieving these milestones can provide a sense of accomplishment and keep you motivated.
  • Learn to Say No: Avoid taking on too many projects at once. It’s okay to decline new opportunities if you’re already stretched thin.
  • Seek Accountability: Share your goals with someone you trust, whether it’s a friend, mentor, or accountability partner. They can help keep you on track.
  • Reflect and Adapt: Periodically review your progress and adjust your approach if needed. Don’t be afraid to pivot or abandon a project if it’s not working out, but do so thoughtfully.
  • Practice Self-Care: Take breaks, maintain a healthy work-life balance, and prioritize self-care to prevent burnout.

Remember that finishing what you start not only helps you maintain your motivation and enthusiasm but also builds a portfolio of completed work that can showcase your skills and attract a larger audience.
