This ritual is adapted from Feng Shui: Art and Harmony of Place, John Dennis Govert.
If it takes 3 months to finish your new website, or to complete the painting you began, or to accept that you aren't able to give up sweets right now, try adding more goals to your life.
Your attention gets splintered off among many priorities, each urgent.
The Feng Shui tradition suggests that instead, choose one primary focus at a time - give it your all and each day, visualize the most positive outcome supported by the greatest possible good.
Then after 3 or 6 months, offer it up - either you will have come closer to accomplishing your goal, or you can decide that you did your best and it's time to put your attention elsewhere.
