This quote from an article on creativity really nails it:
“Creative people share three qualities that I call specific, present and true:
1. Specific: They break down their big goals into small, doable pieces.
2. Present: They take action on those pieces in the here and now – they don’t postpone them for some time in a nebulous future.
3. True: The things they are engaged in are things that they feel passionately about. They are not overly compelled from outside motivators.”

Not sure if you’re on the right track? Not sure how to get back on? I think these three points are useful guiding principles.
