Sorry for the late post today. I had a lot going on! Don’t we always seem to have a lot going on?
Ok so sometimes you find yourself pretty paralyzed. You keep switching from one task to the next without getting much done at all! You stress enough about something to start working on it only to get stressed about the other thing so badly that you can’t focus. So how do we deal with it?
Ask yourself “What is the most important thing I need to do right now?” You’ll have a knee-jerk scream in your brain as to what exact task you need to do. Maybe that really is the most important thing you need to do right now. How do you find out if it is?
Ask yourself “Why is that more important than the other stuff?” where you’ll probably have a second critically important option pop up in your head. Or maybe it’s not critically important as you think about it. Or maybe the second option was the correct option and the first was your way of distracting yourself from the truly important stuff! Either way, you have to decide which is more important.
Then just do it!
There’s really not much more to it than that. You just ask what your priority is, pick it out with some reasonable level of decision-making, and focus on it until it’s done!
Hope this helps!
