You have a BIG goal.
A dream that you have always wanted to pursue.
Just when you are about to do something about it, someone tells you that it’s imposssible. That it can’t be done. Or maybe that it’s a bad idea.
Suddenly, the wind is out of your sails. The air is let out of your tires. Your motivation fades and you quit on your big idea.
Yet, in this situation, you are the one quitting on yourself.
How do you start your day?
Facebook? News? Or even email?
You’re probably checking these before your feet even hit the floor in the morning. When you finally get going, you struggle to get your day started and your work on track.
How much better off would you be if you started with the most important thing you needed to accomplish today?
We all have excuses that we use to justify our lack of progress or failure to pursue our dreams.
Often, we tell ourselves that we are waiting for a more opportune place or time to begin.
However, the truth is you can only start from where you are right now.
You’re never going to get to the end of your todo list.
(Nor should you…)
However, before you call it a day, resolve to do one more task.

We are moving towards the end of the year at lightning speed. That may be an ambivalent feeling for many of us.
While you may be looking forward to spending your Christmas holiday with family and friends, you might be dreading the moment on New Year’s Eve when the little voice inside your head starts asking questions.
“What was my biggest accomplishment this year?”
“Which goals did I fail to achieve?”
“Did I really give it my all this year?”
Does that sound familiar? Don’t fret. Here’s the antidote to not worry about these questions next year.
Many people spend their entire lives complaining.
And yet, they don’t take any action.
They would rather complain than do something productive.
Don’t fall into the trap of complaining versus actually doing something about the issue.
Ever have one of those days when you just can’t seem to get out of first gear?
Your actions seem to being going from slow to slower.
Do you need something to pick-up your productivity today?
Read on, for “12 Quick Productivity Pick-Me-Ups.”
This is a wake-up call.
You are not going fast enough.
Another day has passed, and you are no closer to your goals than you were yesterday.
(Or has is it been another month? Or year?)
The truth is that you will not reach your goals unless you pick up the pace.
“You’re not going fast enough to be successful.”
In your search for productivity, are you constantly changing up your game?
Always trying new techniques, tools, and the latest gadgets?
This constant state of flux can actually make you less productive.
Perhaps, you need more of the “same” to get things done today.
People often tell me what they want to be.
Often, their big goals represent something they are not doing currently… like a new career.
Or something they cannot perform today… such as run a 5K race.
The question is, “Are you doing what you want to become?”
