Brad Sugars said, “Right now someone far less qualified than you is living your dreams … all because they didn’t just talk about it … they took action.” How much time do you spend making your ‘To Do’ lists? How much time is spent talking about what you want to accomplish? Time spent dreaming and wishing? Fifteen minutes is all you need to get started on your better life. You want that better life, yes?
It’s okay to write that master list of goals. In fact, I encourage it. If nothing else, it keeps a log of what you want to do, plus it makes you feel accomplished when you get to cross that thing out! It also can keep you focused on the prize. Write it up, type it up, whatever. Don’t spend more than 15 minutes a day creating this list, because you don’t want to sit more than this when you could be taking action.
Simply write 3 things you’d like to do today or this week, or month or year. Which is most important? Work on that one first. Baby steps count. Or, rather than 3, just write one thing in big bold letters. Put it in a prominent place so you’ll see it several times a day. Whether it’s scrubbing your stove and getting it done today or working on that novel and getting closer to the end, you are still getting somewhere. Hey, it’s better than sitting still and just wishing, right?
Don’t forget, once you’ve taken action for that 15 minutes (not including making your list), CELEBRATE! Because YOU are worth it and because taking action is a big friggin’ deal!
Are you willing to do the work? Willing to get your hands dirty?
Let me know in the comments below what you did to take action today and I’ll cheer you on in the next TAKE ACTION blog post.
