The ‘Do It Now’ approach

Here’s to taking the bull by the horns and actually getting things done.

A couple of months ago I became aware of my own small-scale procrastination. Putting off: making meals, doing the washing up, returning orders, making phone calls, booking appointments, raising issues etc. Granted I was only putting off the washing up by maybe an around an hour but there was an impact to putting it off.

When you’re doing small scale procrastination you can feel within your body that you should be doing your task rather than re-watching season 2 of Felicity and swooning over Ben Covington.

But what if you changed your ways and took the ‘Do It Now’ approach?

I’ve been playing around with this idea for a while, it’s about shaking procrastination and getting things done.

It starts with the inner monologue, the voice that says just 10 more minutes needs to be trained to want to do it now.

It starts with a conscious effort of regular self-talk and you can even say it aloud. Eventually that voice will become more and more prominent until one day it’s your default because you’ve been practising it for so long.

It’s something I want to implement into my own life as I look to take my life by the horns instead of passively watching it pass me by.
