"Procrastination makes easy things hard, hard things harder." ~ Mason Cooley
As if we don't have enough things on the to do list as it is, we keep adding more and more things and ideals to the list. Be kind to yourself. Prioritize what has to be done, and really consider if it all needs to be done by you! If that thing on the list can really, truly only be done by you, then own it. Don't let things get "too big" by putting them off.
Here are a few helpful tips to get things done:
1) Schedule a block of time, and protect it! This is the time you will use to accomplish the task at hand or at least to make true progress.
2) Ask for help. Sometimes we work harder when we know our friends or family or coworkers are sacrificing to help us out. If you need that motivation, get it!
3) Eat the elephant one bite at a time. Progress, not perfection!
4) Decide to make it happen and then attack!
There's always something more on your plate, and one more thing to add to your list. Do what you can, and don't sweat the rest. Take care of yourself and your health, and you'll find that it's easier to prioritize and easier to get things done. Put one foot in front of the other and just move. You can do this!
