The last two posts have been on getting things done and getting started! The last one was short and blunt (I was in a cheeky mood and some people didn’t like it) , but congratulations for hanging on in there because today I’m going to share what’s probably the most important thing you need in order to get stuff done.
And it’s probably not what you’re thinking.
When you find out this secret, it will make all the difference. You can learn all the time management tricks in the book. You can prioritise until you’re blue in the face but if you don’t find out one thing, it won’t help your success rate.
That one thing is knowing what you are getting from NOT doing it! If there’s something you’ve been putting off, get really curious about what NOT doing it does for you.
What are the benefits of NOT doing it?
What do you gain from NOT doing it?
What does NOT doing it protect you from?
What would you have to face if you DID do it?
When you get to the crux of this, you’ll not only understand why you’ve been procrastinating, you’ll be able to deal with whatever has come up because you’ll know what the problem is. What it is that stands between you and the success you want.
