There are very few things that are as satisfying as the feeling you get when you get something done. It’s a feeling of accomplishment, of joy, of achievement, and of fulfilment. It could be as simple a task as reading all unread mails for the day, or as complicated as finishing a blog post.
The one common thing that I have noticed in successful people that I know, is that they know how to get sh*t done. They act as catalysts for themselves and for others because they are always high on the joyous feeling of accompalishment. They break up their day into small tasks, and get those tasks done.
If you’re writing a book, maybe set the goal of writing a paragaraph a day, but get that sh*t done.
If you’re writing a song, maybe focus on writing only the lyrics of the chorus one day, but make sure you get that sh*t done.
Set tasks. Get one done. Feel good and sing “Kumbaya”. Move on to the next task.
When these simple things become hard to do, you know its time for a change. And if it is time for a change, GET THAT SH*T DONE!
Maybe the key then is to set smaller tasks and make sure to get them done. For some it might work for others it might not. It all depends on what suits you. However you do it, whether you set one goal, or set smaller goals, you better learn how to get it done.
