When I started my road trip this year I thought I had a great idea for a mobile application. Although, that idea made it to a functional prototype I found myself at a crossroads with moving it forward. During my designing process, a seed that had been planted in my head five years ago started to sprout. As I kept working on the application, drawing out all the details, this seed kept growing and clouded my thinking. I started thinking of ways to use the information from the growing seed, into the application I was designing but it would not take! I stepped back to realize that I was trying to force a process from one business tree to another and they were not compatiable. I then went ahead, gathered all my files for the mobile application and put them in a folder tucked away in my computer.

I decided to nurture and grow the seedling that sprouted up after being planted 5 years earlier. The progress I made with it has been significant, and I found that its so much easier to nurture than the last idea. I am in the process of creating a 3 guide program and eLearning course online targeted towards individuals who need encouragement. I just completed my first draft of workbook 1 which contains 5 lessons. Each lesson is built upon 10 practical steps for that workbook. So for example: Lesson 1 is based on the first two practical steps, Lesson 2 is built on Lesson one concepts as well as practical steps 3 and 4. When the student completes the 5 lessons and their questions, they will move on to the "Final." The final is broken up between all 3 guides, because at the end of the entire program the student will take all three finals and to create their life plan. Their life plan is broken up into sections and allows the student to dig deep within themselves to get the most benefit. That is the gist of the program. There are much more to the program, but with this information maybe I can get some detailed advice. I have broken down my process into small bite size chunks. Rather than focusing on the entire program at once, I have broken it down by workbook guides. As I have stated before, I just completed my first draft of my first workbook.

Should I step back from it for a few days, before coming back into editing, revising, adding, subtracting, etc?? (For better clarity)

If I do step back from it, should I start working on my first draft of my second workbook?

My plan is stick with creating three drafts, after my third draft I plan to hire a professional to help me finalize the product prior to publishing. I am stuck. I don't know if I should just write all three workbooks, then come back and edit/review.. If this makes no sense, i apologize but I will answer all questions if there are any. Thank you for being here and helping me.

Wanted to update this... I moved forward with my first workbook. I spent eight hours revising and editing the workbook yesterday. Last night I hired someone to work on the final revisions and touches. This first workbook should be ready for the publisher sometime in the next few days. My plan is to then file my completed workbook on my external hard drive and start my next workbook. Rinse and repeat for all three workbooks, design my workbook book covers and keep the process and execution rolling.

This is going a bit faster than I thought. Do people normally apply breaks and slow down at this point or do I continue pressing that accelerator?
