What do we do now?

Or as Nike tell us, Just do it πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

In your quest to get over procrastination.

A simple rule of thumb, is to do the one thing you dread the most first first thing in the morning.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

And if you have two things you dread.

Do the bigger of the two first.

Mark Twain referred to this as “eat a frog”.

What do we do now?

I know it’s easier said than done on some days.

I’ve been guilty of it myself.

But, I’m finding more and more.

If I just the ‘the thing’ that I’ve been dreading.

It’s usually never as bad as I think it’s going to be.

And quite often, works out great for me.

So here was this thing I’ve been putting off, and putting off.

When at the end of the day, it was something good for me!

What do we do now?

We have all been there.

I’ll do it tomorrow.πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹

Next thing you know tomorrow is today and you STILL don’t do it.

So, one day rolls into the next and into the next, and so on and so on.

That’s why I always recommend writing everything down, on paper.

You know, old school.

Write down your goals.

Your to-do list.

Grocery list.

Priorities for the week. 

Whatever it is you need to accomplish.

Write it down.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

What do we do now?

Think about it?

Why do we make a list when we go to the grocery story?

Because we know we are not going to be able to remember everything we need to buy.

That’s why you make a list of goals you want to accomplish this coming week.

This coming month.

This coming year.

Well, what we have of it.

What awesome things are you going to do?

For me, I did two of my really BIG ones.

I opened my YouTube Channel earlier in the year.

AND.

I just started on TikTok last week.

FYI: Both are The Frog’s Den πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Was it easy?

No.

Will it be worth it down the road.

Absolutely!

What do we do now? πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

As for me, I have my goals written on several different pieces of paper for different reasons.

I have my monthly and yearly goals.

Those are also broken down into different areas of my life.  

Needless to say, I have a vision board. 

Only it’s about five years old,

And I have new goals/dreams.

So I started a new one on Pinterest.

I’ve added so many new things to it.

And I can look at it anytime or anywhere I’m at to keep me motivated.

(Because I like nice things).

And if an idea comes to me when I’m out of the house, I simply text it to myself πŸ˜‰

What do we do now?

Absolutely.

That’s truly the stuff that weighs you down.

Time to let it GO.

Nobody wants to live with a whole bunch of stuff hanging over their head.

I don’t believe anyone really wants to live that way.

That’s like living on the hamster wheel of life.

You just keep going around and around.

And not really getting anywhere. 

If you really need help in getting over procrastination.

Put little sticky notes around your place, little reminders of what you need to do.

Or, reward yourself. 

Like, ok, if I do XYZ in the next five minutes, I am rewarding myself with __________

(whatever floats your boat). 

For me, my reward would be something like, ‘if I do XYZ right now, I will spend the next 1/2 hour watching makeup tutorials on YouTube. 

As I said, whatever floats your boat!

What do we do now?

“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.” / Stephen King

What do we do now?

True!

Stop wasting your time.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

You only get so many minutes in a day.

Stop using them up on pointless crap.

If you have miscellaneous items on your list to do, just get those suckers done and off your list!

Like a band aid, just rip it off and just do it!

I don’t know about you,.

But I get complete satisfaction being able to check off something on my to-do list!

What do we do now?

I’ve written about this before.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Do you know how many people tell me they are going to do something?

Like, I’m going to open a business too Patti!

Or I’m going to do so and so Patti.

And the next time I see them and ask how it’s going, they tell me why they haven’t done ‘it” yet?

Oh please.

I don’t know.

Maybe it’s because I realize I have so many things I want to accomplish.

And the clock is ticking.

I literally do as much as I can on any given day.

Until such time my energy is depleted.

Or that I can’t think straight.

All I know is, I’m using my time correctly these days.

Because I wasted far too many years, and I’m never doing that again!

What do we do now?

See, that’s the thing, there is no divine time to start.

Trust me, I started my business and I had no clue what I was doing.

I just knew I had to start.

These days.

If I want to start something new.

I just do it.

And work on making it better as I go along.

No more waiting.

These days, it’s all about doing πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

What do we do now?

 

Seriously!

What do you want?πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Now get that picture in your head.

Pretend you have it all.

In your mind, imagine what your perfect day will be like!

Now, don’t stop working until you get your perfect day!

And kiss procrastination good-bye!

What do we do now?

Another excuse for procrastination!

Too comfortable in your misery.

Again, I get it.

Been there done that.

For me, The Universe finally heard my plea and got me the hell out of that Flight Department.

And then gave me the opportunity to open my own business.

Total game changer. NineFrogs Daily QUOTE OF THE DAY:

Forever changed my life for the BETTER πŸ‘†πŸ‘†

If you want a better life.

Now is the time to fight to get it.

Forget the excuses!πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

What do we do now?
