Common excuse I just don’t have enough time

Of five days wasted the trick is to work smarter not harder-if your putting off projects here are some tips:

Procrastination: it is not a problem it is a symptom of a problem, ask what the downside of not doing things is and what is the problem I am avoiding/hiding behind?

Production killers

  1. Not putting yourself first
  2. Doing urgent but not important things first
  3. Fear of accomplishment
  4. Need to be busy rather than productive
  5. Checking your email and social media all the time are production killers, a distraction, others include food, cups of tea, coffee, doing others chores, not yours, busy wasting time.

SIMPLE WAYS TO MAKE YOURSELF PRODUCTIVE

See where are our distractions are

  1. poor time management
  2. poor scheduling
  3. letting others determine your day
  4. never saying NO

ACTION STEPS AND TAKING THEM  

  1. Redefine what is important, ask yourself does this further my goals and objectives
  2. If you have ten things on a list you will find some will answer ‘should’s’ i.e. more obligated.
  3. People will get upset if I don’t respond
  4. I should do it because WHAT a good person I will be.
  5. I can’t delegate because only I can do it, someone might do it better than me.
  6. Write to the point emails and don’t get caught up in others drama’s

IDENTIFY TIME WASTERS

  1. TV, Junk email, surfing the net needlessly, emotional eating, emotional needy friends, emotional drinking, emotional smoking, emotional helplessness, emotional dependence, emotional drug taking, emotional sex.

WHY DO YOU DO THESE THINGS?

  1. Focus on the emotion that is creating this desire why is it necessary, are you addicted! Ask for help!!
  2. Is it something to do with the illusion of being busy these can kill productivity and ruin your life!!!

IDENTIFY ENERGY DRAINS

  1. Worrying about reactions of others, will people cut me off, compulsive checking; associating with negative people their dramas and their negative thoughts drains energy. Get them out of your life or keep them at a distance.
  2. Worrying drains energy, people often chose a negative reaction to connect themselves to something i.e. grief or illness or past event, WRONG chose to connect through confidence, goodness, positive future GOALS.
  3. We connect through love instead of worry. Instead of worrying about a project use confidence that you are gong to work on the project and create more time to do so.
  4. Give voice to your worry, SPEAK IT. SAY IT.
  5. If you have an hour watch Bruce Lipton’s video

CREATE A TO DO LIST= DO IT=responsibility=actions=consequences THINK
