The New Year arrived with a bang! The long awaited 2017 is here and it's time to put all of your amazing future plans into action. The plans you said you would do next year, the ones you've been procrastinating on and haven't put into action. It's time to stop talking about them.
Now is always a good time.
Action steps don't involve lists, they involve tasks and putting steps in motion. Progress isn't made with a pen and post-its, unless you have the power to delegate and even then some to-dos can't be passed off. Let's go through the inevitable foot-dragging rant you have in your head with a whiny list.
The amazing excuses:
- I don't know what to do.
- I don't know how to do it.
- I don't have time today.
- I'll do it tomorrow.
- I'm feeling overwhelmed.
- This isn't a good time.
- The person I need to talk to is away.
- I don't have the energy.
- I don't have the money.
You get the idea Captain Procrastinator.
Blah-bitty-blah-bitty! Take your excuses and grate them with a cheese grater, sprinkle them on a salad and eat them. Notice that we said salad and not spaghetti, because this is resolution time and that usually means a few less carbs. No, this post is not about giving up spaghetti. It's about conquering goals.
Where will you be next year?
Imagine waking up 365 days from now without having accomplished anything. Talk about a depressing thought. You'll feel defeated by your lack of control over your life and your choices. Who's driving this life anyway? You are. All you need to do is prove that to yourself and the world with some action. We'll be sweating behind the scenes to bring you fresh blog posts every Monday. Your friendly kick in the butt to keep you on track to wherever you're headed.
Off your butt and on with it.
