If you feel like you are not accomplishing as much as you would like, then it is time for you to create it!
We get so busy with the tedious stuff in our day to day lives. So much so that we will look up every so often and see that we have not accomplished what we thought we would have by this stage in life. You may have said to yourselves a year ago, or even 10 years ago, that you were going to get in great shape, start a business of your own or write that book that has been in your head. Yet, here you are and nothing has been done towards it. Usually the reason that you have not made steps towards it is because work has kept you super busy and then you needed to spend with family. Or, perhaps it was spent on social media, which we all say we will only be online for a few minutes, but it always winds up being an hour or more. Now it is not that there is anything wrong with the activities you already do. In fact, spending time with family is very important and the job will pay the bills. But you need to start taking the steps to make your dream a reality.
One thing that can make a difference is to make a list of 3 things you want to accomplish that will make a difference in your life. Make this something that will take your forward in your dreams.
It could be:
- To do your workout
- Writing a page on that book you have been wanting to write
- Taking a class that will allow you to start in a new career field
- Use 10 minutes to start creating a business plan
If you have an overall goal that you would like to accomplish, even better. Look at that and then see what small things you can start doing to make them a reality. Create a list for everyday of at least 3 things you can do to propel yourself forward. You can do more than 3 things but start small so that you do not get completely overwhelmed.
If you plan these things into your day and into your schedule you will actually do them. So often people want to accomplish something, but they just doing it whenever they have time. The problem is many times that time is elusive or does not happen. You need to see yourself as the CEO of your life. CEO's schedule and plan things that otherwise things get forgotten and the business does not accomplish what it needs to. This is you! You are your business. So start to plan for your successful life.
Look and see if there are places you can shave a little more time out of your day to use towards these actions steps. There are probably things in your life you can cut down even just a little bit to add in more room to accomplish these action steps. Do you spend a lot of time online, on video games, talking on the phone, extra-long meals etc.? There are some people who really do not have time they can shave away since they have packed their day full of successful activities. But that is the rare minority. Most of us can find some time to put towards more beneficial pursuits. You may say well my gaming time is important to me, but you then need to look at what is most important to you, playing video games or achieving your dream? Be honest. This only needs to be what you want in life, and if video games are more important than that is fine. Just make sure you are doing activities that will make your life take the direction you want it to.
Accomplish your tasks early in the day if you can. If you can plan to accomplish some of these tasks earlier in the day, you will feel more successful right off the bat and that will give you a great jump start to your day. Many people who have a goal of getting healthier choose to make exercise one of their daily to do's, and they do it first thing in the morning as a way of starting their day off right.
Schedule your tasks. Whatever you choose to do and however you choose to accomplish them, just make sure that you schedule it in and start putting this practice into action. Before long you will have made significant progress towards what you want to accomplish in life!
