HOW DO YOU GET THROUGH A DAY OF DOING WHAT YOU DON’T LOOK FORWARD TO DOING?
How do you make sense out of things that don’t seem to make any sense at all. Do you feel your life is unusually chaotic and that everything you try to do takes so much effort? Certain things seem to take more mental and physical exertion, which usually doesn’t make that kind of demand on your faculties. You are generally meticulous about being organized, and recently you haven’t had the time to clear up the mess you find yourself buried in. Life seems to be so simple at times, and yet at other times, you are surprised at how complex life can be.
We all have three different categories of things we do in life:
- things we like to do
- things we have to do
- things we don’t want to do
The things we “don’t want to do” are usually the things that will alleviate us of any potential stress or anxiety if we would change our approach and outlook on it. With the thought of things that “I have to do”, are the things we procrastinate in doing. You might think that organizing these three different categories will deliver little value, but I assure you that the results will be exponential.
Life throws curves that you don’t have to miss if you would only keep your eyes on the ball. Do you wish that you could be more efficient and effective in your daily life and have free time to enjoy what you really love doing? Well, let me share with you a simple process of just how little effort is needed to be efficient and effective. It only requires a different approach. How you approach a situation is equally as important as the process of how you deal with it. If you’re tired of spinning your wheels and going nowhere, reading this article might be just what the doctor ordered.
Let me illustrate how you can place the three categories in the order that will serve you well and produce that best results. Start with the list of “things you have to do”. Usually this list of items is essential and is squeezed between due dates and deadlines. Getting these things done will leave you more time to concentrate on your next line item, which is doing “things that you hate to do”.
Surprisingly enough, this list of items of doing things you hate, might be tedious and daunting, but its rewards will have you jumping for joy after you’ve completed it. You would have learned something or how to do something that will benefit you for a lifetime. Your mind will be uninhibited and ready to enjoy what you really take pleasure in doing. This is why I suggest leaving “what you love to do” as the last item because doing these things will never be a chore for you.
Find your list of things to do and put them in the suggested category and see if this process won’t work for you.
