How to get more done...Do It!
Seems kind of obvious right? Well yeah I guess it is.
One of my biggest problems with my productivity is that I take way to long to plan. It might be because I'm cautious or maybe I'm just nervous I'm going to fail. But the end result is the same. I wait to long to start the project or it never gets off the ground at all.
This could be sending emails to potential clients or starting a new marketing campaign. The problem I think is fear. Fear of rejection or of not being perfect on the presentation. It's the fear of failure.
Please forgive me because I can't remember exactly where I heard this analysis but I'm going to share it anyway.
If you give someone a year to complete a task they will take a year. If you give someone a month to complete a task they will take a month. If you give someone a week to complete a task they will take a week, and if you give someone a day to complete a task they will take a day.
The point, just do it! Thanks Nike and Shia!
Get out there and do it. If you're wanting to negotiate your salary at work schedule a meeting for Wednesday with your boss. Because you now have a deadline you are going to work your ass off to be ready then.
When you give yourself these deadlines you are going to find that you are a much more productive person.
So get out there and do it!
