If neither of these existed, life would be like living on “easy street”.
Stuff would always get done. Truckloads of it.
But that’s not the case fellow Life Lover, is it?
You have Procrastination issues and some of your Excuses, well, they are good ones I’ll give you that.
So Prioritise your “list”.
If you must procrastinate and are prone to excusing yourself from the ‘narky’ things , then work out [of all the things that you need to do] what you must do.[Your “list”].
These will be absolutes. They will be ‘ no mistake this is really important type stuff ‘. They will be time sensitive. Meaning, that you must find the time to do them.
You might have guessed that this post is not about stopping you from Procrastinating. It’s not even about all the excuses that you give. I’ve written about them before.
This post is about showing you how to set yourself up to do the important stuff.
When you clear the decks and identify what is important, what is time sensitive then it becomes easier to do them.
But hang on, it’s not quite that simple though.
You still have to take the action to do them. Remember the procrastinating thing and remember your excuses? You are pretty good at both, right?
It will come down to “what is important to me/what does this mean for me?”
I will assume [this can be a dangerous maneuvre at times] that You do have important things in your life to do and that you want to do in the future.
So, before you set out on your quest to ” get your Big stuff done”, spend time on identifying your priorities.
What are they and what meaning do they have for you. If they mean enough, then begin the process that will ensure that you get them done.
Life things. Important things like family, friends, career, finances, dreams, goals may be some good examples.
These will be ‘Your Big’ things, so identify those that You want to apply to You.
Is this important enough or Big enough for You?
What’s holding You back then?
