FireworksAnnouncing the Deborah Myers Wellness Website

It happened! My new website is live! I’m not saying it’s done, because I discovered along the way that I had to let go of that expectation. Anything we create is always in a state of change. Even when we think we finished a project, we discover something needs changing. And, my goodness, I know that about my garden! I can’t even count the number of times over the last 18 years that I’ve moved plants to different locations because they needed more sun, less sun, more elbow room, a different set of companion plants. Sometimes I discovered I needed to let a plant go because it didn’t work. So, if I knew that, I wonder why I thought a website update would go to a completed state without changes and side trips! Here is my ah-ah for this experience! Just like my garden, projects like a website, a training program or a new product are never in a completed state because they are always being added to and changed up, which allows them to evolve into many bigger possibilities.

It Takes a Team

Thank goodness for my amazing team who worked with me to bring my ideas for the website and the possibilities to fruition. Catch the garden connection? I couldn’t have done it without Heidi, who was my website guru at Planeteria, my longtime website company. I sure couldn’t manage all the intricacies of the content without Ruth Schwartz who has an eagle eye and can comb through minutia with a fine-toothed comb. She’s the reason there will be the parts and pieces that still get found and changed up. Judy Baker was there to make sure we had the right product images and banners. And Victoria Lasin was often my final eye for editing the content.

Along the way, there were critical deadlines, as you can well imagine. I’ve always known that I don’t do well with deadlines when I’m the one who sets them. But when someone else gives me one, I can really get into a state of angst. Well, getting things done isn’t an easy process when we get into that place. I so wish I could remember that each time I set a deadline!

Stay in Flow

I’ve decided that instead of expecting myself to remember how I can be with deadlines, I am choosing to find the flow. Here’s what I’ve realized. And, I hope you can get help from my realization when you decide to create a big project.

Order from Chaos Tip Sheet

  1.  Create a master list of all your projects and split big projects into smaller manageable ones
  2. Develop a storyboard to remind you of what you want to see at the end of the journey
  3. Have hope of the completion date and allow yourself room for change
  4. Put timelines to the items listed in the smaller lists (keep lists and projects manageable with 10 or fewer items)
  5. Be realistic that everything on the list (both the actual to-do steps and the expected completion dates) will change when the prior items get shifted
  6. Change the storyboard often. It’s okay!
  7. Don’t sweat the small stuff
  8. Don’t sweat the timing
  9. Celebrate the completions along the way
  10. Give yourself permission to take a break from the project; both you and the project may benefit from some respite
  11. Don’t sweat the small stuff and the timing
  12. And maybe the most important item of all is to be kind to yourself. We are more often than not the hardest on ourselves

 

Notice how many times I said, “don’t sweat the small stuff and the timing?”

I am a proud Mama

The new website process felt as if I was giving birth, and it took a full nine months. Thank goodness for my team who helped me with the gestation and the actual birthing.

Stay on the Right Path

Clarity and focus kept me on the path. There is one key energy hold I kept reminding myself to do.

  1. Right hand: cup forehead with fingers on the left side
    Left hand: cup base of skull with fingers on the right side of occiput
  2. Switch hands

 

To release any tension that has built up and to prevent tension and stress, follow these steps:

  1. Right hand: cup sternum below the clavicle
    Left hand: hold fingers in a vertical pattern on the tummy below the navel
  2. Right hand: cup left shoulder with fingers near neck
    Left hand: hold left sit bone
  3. Switch hands to release right side

 

I wish you an easy journey with your project, whatever it might be!
