Putting off today...

Updated: Nov 16, 2020

Is it so much easier to say "Oh, I'll do it tomorrow..."

Is it? Really?

When you have a project in mind, a book to write, a cupboard to tidy, an excersize regimen to start, or a car to clean you may approach it, then get caught up in looking online at others books, houses, bodies and cars and think

"What does it matter what I do, it will never be as good as that?"

And so, you put it off until another day. A day when, you convince yourself, you'll be able to write, tidy or clean and produce a better result.

You'll feel better tomorrow. You'll have more energy. You'll have more time. You'll have more... blah, blah, blah.

Putting off a task today, doesn't get it done tomorrow. You know that.

The best way to deal with anything, is to think small.

Whittle whatever you want to do, down into one manageable task.

  • Don't think of writing the whole book, instead, think of writing a paragraph.

  • Don't think of tidying the whole cupboard, instead, think of decluttering one shelf and getting the bags ready for what you want to keep, give away or bin.

  • Don't think of losing several pounds by the end of the week, instead think of the way you'll feel after one session of 15 minutes.

  • Don't think of cleaning the whole car, instead, focus down on one thing like making those bumpers shine like new or filling up the fluids in the engine.

One step at a time, easy does it. Divide your day up into 15 minute segments. Assign a task per segment, or a project per day. In no time at all you'll find you have achieved not only one goal, but several.

And you'll have done it without even feeling anxious about it!
