So what are you doing today that will make your tomorrow feel like an upgrade?!
Stop procrastinating. These are some steps that could help you start today.
1. Make a list. Just as simple as that. Could be penned down or even on the notepad on your phone. It keeps you focused. So look at your list and do one thing on it right now!
2: Set simple achievable goals : Most times, procrastination seems like the only choice due to over daunting goals. Set goals that you are certain is achievable. So if your goal feels daunting, break it into bite-sized steps. Remember, you don’t have to know every step of the way; just the next few steps immediately ahead.
3 : Write down your goals, include a deadline and a reward for yourself: This puts you into action because a goal without a deadline can be put off indefinitely.
4 : Harness fear : This seems weird but it works magic. Fear is a powerful emotion that can keep us mired in excuses. Yet, by focusing on what you don’t want, you can harness it in your favor. So write down how you will feel a year or two from now if you do nothing. Be brave and really honest with yourself about the cost of continued inaction. After all, if nothing changes, nothingchanges!
5: Be brave : Building momentum is crucial as you begin and yes that could be uncomfortable. So commit to stepping out of your comfort zone at least once per day. Start now before your fear-laden excuses, disguised as sheer laziness, kick in again. It can be something really small. After all, it doesn’t matter how fast you are going, so long as you are stepping forward in a direction that inspires and empowers you. So take that first step, then another, then another.. after all a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
6 : Visualize the end result. When you feel the emotions and imagine how it would feel at the end. This is freedom from anxiety or self -doubts. Accomplishing put off tasks could dramatically boost your confidence and energy. So why wait ? Start today.
Start now! Change your patterns. Be better…
