I have learned over the last few days that when you are having trouble getting things done, the antidote is… you guessed it! ACTION! Just start doing things! Maybe you feel like you have too much to do (your todo list got too long?) Then Make a SHORT todo list – one with just a couple of things. And get in the mind set that you only need to do those things. Reward yourself if you get them done – then, if you feel like still doing things do another thing that wasn’t on your short list. You will be surprised how great it feels to do something that isn’t on your list. Maybe you can’t do everything you wanted, but by starting small, and checking a few things off you begin to get momentum. This momentum builds over a couple of days until suddenly you look at your list and are amazed at what is left! Trust me, Action really works! And its easier to get moving slowly than it is to make drastic changes – besides, those big changes often feel overwhelming just to get started!
