Have you ever felt crazy stressed about a big to-do? Whether it’s taking care of your home, losing weight, or just doing one of the many seemingly insurmountable projects or tasks life throws our way, I know you KNOW what I’m talking about.
The normal reaction when facing what feels like a mountain of a task is to stall, to procrastinate.
We’ll get to it “later.”
What ends up happening in our minds is that the “to-do” becomes even bigger, more insurmountable. It gets pushed farther into the future.
And as we blow up the magnitude of the thing at hand, achieving it becomes further from reality.
Instead, here’s what to do…
Take action immediately. Don’t talk about it. Don’t think about. Just act.
You see, motivation to complete the task at hand won’t EVER come without action.
Action first, then motivation follows.
I think it’s so important to highlight this part of the motivation cycle. So many people sit around waiting for motivation to strike before acting, and they end up waiting forever.
This is why 95% of people fail to reach their goals. It’s sad but true.
So, what’s your big “to-do” that feels a little overwhelming? How can you take action TODAY in order to become motivated and get it done?
