What are you re-scheduling each week because you’re just NOT doing it?
Do you find yourself avoiding or skipping over the same thing every time you get to it on the calendar? Why do you think that is?
We set goals
We want to accomplish them
We know what we have to do
Yet, we don’t take action!
If you’re like me, you might:
Call yourself a procrastinator
Wait ‘til the last minute to get certain things done
Tell yourself you work great under pressure
Tell yourself something else is more important
In the end, you just don’t do it and there it is again on the calendar!
Let’s take a minute of awareness of what’s going on:
Here are a few things that are happening:
Dread - The discomfort of doing something new, boring or hard
Resistance - Telling yourself that you “have to” or “need to” do something
Avoid - Putting it off because “You’ll do it later”
When we set a goal (personal or business), many times it’s something new & requires more of us than what we’re comfortable with.
It’s easy to tell ourselves:
I don’t know!
I’ve never done this before!
What if I can’t do it?
I might fail!
The truth is we don’t “have” to do anything we “want” to do them!
Lose weight/ Exercise
Make more money
Start a business
Get more clients
5 things to do right now to get things done! Set aside 1 hour before starting your week: I do this on Sunday:
1. Change I “have to” – to I “want to”
2. Commit to taking 10-15 min writing down everything you WANT to do
3. Decide the amount of time required for each thing and place it on your calendar
4. Focus during tasks that require it – turn off ALL notifications (phone & computer)
5. Be Accountable and trust yourself to get it done
You got this – Growth comes from stepping out of our comfort zone doing New Things!
