If you’re not doing anything to bridge the gap between your present and future self, ask yourself ‘how do I expect to get there?’
Maybe you want to read more, wake up earlier, be more productive, write a book, start a podcast it could be anything.
But let’s take be more productive. How do you go from unproductive to productive?
I’d start with identifying the gap.
Is it procrastination, lack of commitment or focus?
What can you do to overcome that?
Trying the ‘do it now approach‘ for a month or so is a great way to combat a variety of issues. It reduces procrastination, encourages commitment and overtime will probably make you more productive.
If you don’t know about the do it now approach its fairly self explanatory but it’s origin lies in the desire to get things done instead of putting things off.
It’s replying to emails instead of flagging them, doing small tasks when they come up instead of adding them to your to do list.
If that sounds like the kind of person you want to be then challenge yourself and give it a go.
