When procrastination sets in and things start to pile up, it’s time to commit to a change. If anything is going to happen, it is up to you. The timing is up to you too, so choose to make it happen now.
2. I will rethink to regroup.
If you’re digging yourself into a hole, the first thing to remember — but sometimes the hardest — is to stop digging. Look around. Take a breath. Regroup, recalibrate your priorities, and regain control.
3. I will start with what is necessary.
Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and before you know it, you may find yourself doing the impossible. Try to start each day with a series of small but necessary tasks to fuel the rest of your morning.
4. I will simplify what is complicated.
It’s simplicity of intention that gives us consistent productivity. Many of us overthink and make things more complicated than they need to be. Ask yourself how much you really need to be doing.
5. I will focus on what matters.
Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off your goal. Stay focused on the actions that will lead toward your successful productive future, and don’t let yourself get distracted with busywork.
