The drafts of yesterday may have considerable emotional weight, yet sometimes they are the most important factor of setback in a present situation.
When the only reason you carry on with a plan is that you started it, when you hate every minute you spend on a project, especially one that doesn’t fulfill you in any way, you may consider starting over, making a change of attitude and/or of project, jotting down a new draft.
Letting go is not easy when you’ve invested much time, effort, and ego, but it might be just what you need. If the effect of your endeavors is unsatisfactory, stop fueling the causes, make adjustments.
A draft is a draft – it isn’t always correct, nor is it ever complete. It is disposable by definition. Focus on the goal your draft serves, don’t sacrifice your goal for an inefficient draft you refuse to throw away.
