Do you ever hear that? Do you find yourself saying that??
In my role as a coach, forever lovingly pushing clients along a path towards a goal, I hear┬áthat type of a sentence almost every week!!┬áBusiness owners feeling burdened by the constant stream of tasks that are on their ÔÇÿTo DoÔÇÖ lists and then saying yes to even more tasks because they feel they have to or couldnÔÇÖt say no.. ÔÇªand the end result is ÔÇ£I havenÔÇÖt got around to it yetÔÇØ.
Maybe you can relate to that?┬áModern Life Is Too Busy!┬áIs this a modern life issue? Is that just the way things are? ┬áor is there anything we can do about it? How do we improve on this ÔÇÿburdensomeÔÇÖ situation?
Well, I am not one to bang a drum about ÔÇÿTime ManagementÔÇÖ or to throw buzz words around like ÔÇ£efficiency drivesÔÇØ or ÔÇ£improvement initiativesÔÇØÔÇªbecause basically I like to keep it simple.
Action is a derivative of desire. If you want to do it bad enough then you find a way!!
Pretty much itÔÇÖs a simple as thatÔÇªand when ÔÇÿpush comes to shoveÔÇÖ and ÔÇÿthe chips are downÔÇÖ somehow somewhere stuff gets done!!!
Yes, when we really, really have to we find a wayÔÇªSo my question to you if you find yourself saying ÔÇ£I havenÔÇÖt got around to it yetÔÇØ┬á is ┬áÔÇ£if it isnÔÇÖt that important then why say you are going to do it?!ÔÇª.
ÔÇªand if it is important then move other less important tasks from your radar and get it done!ÔÇØ
If you want a simple solution then try this:
DonÔÇÖt burden yourself with saying Yes to ÔÇÿstuffÔÇÖ that basically isnÔÇÖt what you want to doÔÇªor isnÔÇÖt really important or isnÔÇÖt really for nowÔÇªsay No!
