Take Action

Take Action

Taking action is one of those essential pieces to the puzzle along with proper planning and the drive to succeed. However, as most of us know, sometimes it is very difficult to take that first step and commit to a desired achievement.

Proper planning and taking Action is what separates dreamers from achievers. While the dreamer is caught up in the world of his dreams and endless fantasies, the achiever rolls up his sleeves and throws himself into the mix and doesn't allow himself the luxury of being distracted from his course of his action.

Consistent action has the power to unleash our potential beyond our wildest imagination. Sometimes we become so scared that we frequently get caught up in trying to put together the seamless plans that would make us accomplish our goals effortlessly. But there is no such thing as a perfect plan. Waiting for the perfect moment to launch out may just mean that you would have to wait forever. Start with whatever you’ve got at your disposal RIGHT NOW. What matters is the effort you put into your work every single day. 

This week we want to challenge you to TAKE ACTION  instead of wasting your time on worrying about not getting anything done. Here are a few tips tip catapult your forward.

Identify your most important tasks

Either the night before or at the start of the day highlight three most important things you have to do in the coming day. Once you wake up, do them first. You know you need to hit the gym that day? Then wake up and go for a workout. Don’t wait until you are tired after work and just want to go home and crawl in bed. If you get nothing else accomplished aside from your most important tasks, you will still have a productive day.

Help yourself to take an action

If you know you are pretty useless first thing in the morning but that is the only time you have to work on your goals, then make your life easier by preparing anything you may need the night before. For example, if you are working out in the morning, prep your protein shakes and lay out gym clothes before going to bed.

Do what you hate first

We all have that one task that we need to do day after day and we absolutely hate it. Whether it is cooking or writing a difficult report, make sure you get it out of your way first. We promise, your day can only go better after that.

Plan the next step

Although you need to have your end result in mind when starting a new project, it is more important that you focus your energies on what your next action should be. Don’t overwhelm yourself with a ton of tasks. Plan your day to achieve at least one of them each day and you will tackle any big project with ease.

Assign time for your projects

Schedule specific time to work on your project without any interruptions. Focus entirely on that one thing during that time. Don’t worry about finishing it, just worry about giving amount of undivided attention to the project.

Do it now

A bunch of small tasks that can clutter your life, like unread emails or dirty dishes should not even be occupying place in your head. Do them right now and move on to the more important projects.

Write it down

Don’t rely on your memory as your system. Write down the things you need to do, your schedule, anything you might need to refer to, and every passing thought so you can relax, knowing you won’t forget. Use your brain for thinking, use paper or your gadgets for keeping track of stuff.

Do not multitask

As much as you may believe you are great at multitasking, you are not. In fact, no one is. What we do when we multitask is devote small slices of time to several tasks in rapid succession.  Since it takes more than a few minutes to really get into a task, we end up working more slowly than if we devoted longer blocks of time to each task and moved on to the next one once we were done.

Learn to say NO

Say no to anything that does not move you closer to your current goals. Adding more projects and obligations will guarantee to leave you even more tired and demotivated. Don’t feel bad for saying no; feel bad for saying yes and then not being able to deliver.

A particularly frustrating part of struggle is the ability that it has to stop us dead in our tracks IF we allow it. The potential embarrassment of failure freezes us. The possibility for rejection discourages us. The idea of disappointment makes us check out of the game.

Our world today is a convection of deception, constantly the bullshit is on the rise, and the truth, subsurface and disregarded. We must hold true and steady the course through the lies and contradictions. We have to hold the line between our own lives, and the world that tries to breach in.

Gratitude is something we could all benefit from. Gratitude means thankfulness, counting your blessings, noticing simple pleasures, and acknowledging everything that you receive. It means learning to live your life as if everything were a miracle, and being aware on a continuous basis of how much you’ve been given. Gratitude shifts your focus from what your life lacks to the abundance that is already present.
