In a post I did on new years eve, I asked everyone what their goals for their layout are for 2013. Most of you said lay track, do scenery, or work on projects that are long over due. Forum member david1 gave some great advice, and said work on the layout every day, if it is only for 10 minutes or 3 hours. It doesn't matter just do something.
I took that advice and am running with it. 1st day I started a simple custom bridge and cut the river out of the foam that the bridge will go over. Day 2 I did a little plaster cloth on a small section of my layout. Day 3 I did a little more plaster cloth. Tomorrow I might wire up a switch that isn't done yet. All small projects that take 10 minutes or less.
My point is normally I would have waited until I had 3 or 4 hours free to do all of this in one chunk, and it wouldn't already be done. After an hour or so I might get a bit bored and find something non layout to do, like waist time watching TV. I am much farther ahead then I was just 3 days ago and if I keep up this pace I can really accomplish a lot this year.
I was thinking we could have this thread to just post each day what we accomplished on our layout. Some days we would get more then others. We could look at this thread as encouragement to do more each day. No a layout is never done but by just putting in 10 minutes or 3 hours each day, we can all be a big step closer to being finished.
So what did you do today on your layout?
