Just Do It!

Just do it!  Get more done.  There are two roadblocks to successfully getting things done.  One is not having the things at hand to do the task.  The other is being a perfectionist.just do it

I always have a good reason to not, “Just do it.”  I can justify forever not doing something because I don’t have what I need to do things with.  There are two ways to approach this problem:  1. Make a list of what you need to help do the task and take the list with you when you go shopping and get those things.  2. If you already have what you need to do the task, go get the things from wherever they are that are needed to do it and get started.   That takes care of the primary excuse I usually have which is that I don’t have right in front of me whatever I need.

One thing that is a major problem that gets in the way of my telling myself, To just do it”  is lollygagging.  When it comes to wanting to do the thing right, I can procrastinate forever.  It also doesn’t help that there are controlling people in my life who will welcome the chance to criticize my choice whatever it is.  It is always easier to criticize something after the fact than to figure out how to do it in the first place.

Why did you take so long to just do it? When you do get it done, you may wonder why you did without it so long.  The time spent procrastinating, could have been spent enjoying the end product.  I just put up a new picture of my granddaughter where I can see it when I write.  If I had procrastinated any longer, she could have grown up before I got it done.Just-Do-It-Now

One final thing you can do to help you to just do it is to write down what you have accomplished.  Nothing is too small to put on the list.  We often fail to do this because we say to ourselves that wasn’t anything great that I did.  Yet somebody had to do it, it took time, and somebody will enjoy the results.  For example, take unloading and loading the dishwasher.  You were not doing nothing at the time; you were doing something.
