Last week I told you about how busy these last few weeks have been – what with the end of the year, and the arrival of our first baby approaching.
I asked you if you were feeling that end of year pinch too. And it seems I really hit on something with that question!
Those New Years Resolutions you set and promptly forgot about are rearing their heads, and you’re reminded daily by all the things you said you were gonna do this year, but just, sort of, haven’t gotten around to yet.
And as the days tick closer towards Christmas and NYE, I bet part of you is thinking “Stuff it, I’ll just do it next year.”
Well, sorry but I’m here to give you the big kick up the butt that you asked for.
It’s the first week of October. There are 12 and a bit weeks until New Years Eve. Three months is a long time – even in a year that’s flying by as quickly as this one.
Even if what you set out to achieve can’t be done in the next twelve weeks, you sure as hell can make a start.
See, we all have this idea that “in the future” we’ll be able to stick to that diet, or start our business. But Future You is gonna face the same excuses and reasons not to start as Current You faces right now. You’re not going to be different unless you start working towards the things you want for yourself.
That “future version” of yourself doesn’t work until you do. – Tweet it.
So, start now.
Ask yourself: What can I achieve in the next twelve weeks?
Are you going to start training for that half marathon? Are you going to make a budget and start paying off your debt? Are you going to finally start the cooking blog you’ve been talking about for years?
You tell me.
Tell me what you’re going to achieve in the next three months in the comments below.
I know you’re busy. I know finding the time to finish whatever it is you started this year isn’t necessarily going to be easy.
But you need to finish what you started.
Why? Because even though it’s hard to make time for your projects, it’s even harder to make progress when you’re surrounded by piles of unfinished tasks and abandoned resolutions.
So, this week, I want you to just take that first step.
Buy a pair of joggers for your half marathon training, book in a session with a finance or debt management consultant, register a domain name for your blog.
And the coolest part of all? That one small step is all it takes to get the wheels in motion. I like to imagine it as a ball sitting on top of a hill, all it really needs is one push before it starts rolling of its own accord.
All you have to do is start and suddenly you’ve put your “whatever” into motion.
I want the next twelve weeks to be a crazy productive time for you. Because productivity breeds productivity – the more you get done, the more you get addicted to getting stuff done.
So, over the next few weeks I’m going to share some of my favourite tips for being productive and efficient; and strategies to help you overcome the barriers that might be holding you back.
See you next week for more,
