How many times have you been in the situation where you still have a task to finish, but you keep delaying it because simply you don’t LIKE to do it, or because you’re “waiting for the right mood”. So you procrastinate hoping that one of 2 things happen: either the task will magically disappear or you will get the inspiration and the mood will suddenly appear..
Well to be honest with you, in my line of expertise, this is identified as a MAJOR time waster, and there’s no one who managed to explain it better than Brian Tracy in his book “Eat that Frog” and here’s a bit on how it goes:
Imagine that you have to eat a LIVING Frog on your desk, and of course since this task is so disgusting and “painful” to do, you would keep pushing it to the end of your todo list. But the reality is that you will keep thinking about it and how difficult it will be to do that task even if you’re doing something else.
The Right thing to do is to EAT THAT FROG which is the task that you don’t like to do… And eat it as quickly as possible 🙂 . Then you’ll be confident that nothing would be as difficult or disgusting as this one.
My Tip to you this week is the following:
If you’re not in the Mood to do a task… DO IT ANYWAY… even if you have to do it while nagging.. or by feeling annoyed and disgusted… JUST DO IT!
Enjoy your Week 🙂 !
