Which one are you?? Doer, thinker, a combo you think about it and don’t take action. Wanna change that? There are many ways to become a person of action and what works for someone else may not work for you.
Action people are organized and know exactly how to proceed from one project to another seamlessly and without effort. They know how to get shit done!! While those of us who aren’t action takers feel like we flounder. We feel disorganized, haplessly moving one piece of paper to another location without knowing why. Action takers feed on taking action it’s what gives them energy, it’s what drives them.
Flounders at the end of the day are still floundering and can’t understand why little to nothing has been accomplished yet they are so exhausted!
To make the change from floundering to action taker is all about organization. Decide where you need to start do you need to make a to-do list and prioritize it. Do you need to put the most important ones at the top and each time you complete a goal or project scratch it off and feel the satisfaction. This works best for me. I LOVE checking the boxes as I’m on the way to my goal.
When everything on the list is finished, treat yourself. Even if you don’t quite complete the list in one day, go ahead and celebrate your victories. This gives you something to look forward to and gives you incentive to accomplish more. When Jerry Seinfeld first started out he challenged himself to write 1 joke per-day. He then bought a calendar and put it on his wall and every day he wrote a joke it make a big X. The goal was to not break the streak!
I love list making, but it’s possible for you to get into a rut of getting ready to get ready and not taking ACTION!! I struggle with focus and one of the best things I do is time block and do what I really want to accomplish, I do it first thing in the AM!!
Now if it’s a task that I really don’t want to do, I also have a You Tube highlight reel that I listen to get me in the zone. Based on the video I feel like a Tom Brady coming out of the tunnel on Superbowl Sunday.
This energy will go away, so do as much as you can before it leaves your body.
What I do know is that when I’m moving toward my goals I’m fired up and when I hit my goals cue Alicia Keyes, This Girl Is On Fire!
I use to struggle with not getting things done and playing the guilt and blame game. Then by making this simple shift to have at least 1 hour of productivity things started to shift for me in my health and my business.
Change the way your think and you will change the way you act.
