My 10 tips for getting started on tasks and keeping on it.
With thanks to Mel Robbins author of the 5 second rule.
Get into a good routine -set your alarm at the same time everyday
Use the 5 second rule to get up and take action - do it before you talk yourself out of it!
Stop negative self-talk - write down negatives and turn them into positive affirmations
Create the right environment to work- clear work space, no distractions
Set up for the task- get everything you need together before you start – develop a checklist
Identify a deadline for goal post it where you see it e.g. screen saver
Set session times for concentrated work – be realistic how long you can work effectively for and set a specific outcome to achieve within that time.
Start somewhere- get going, do something rather than worrying if it’s the right place to start
Don't multitask - do one thing at a time and complete it
Make it public- share your goals, actions, achievements with your friends, family colleagues
Go for it!
