What is keeping you from checking everything off of your to do list?
Or maybe, you are waiting on someone else?
When the last time that you did something that was related to your core goals?
Was it yesterday? Last week? Last month? Last year?
Why does it seem so difficult to get things done?
We overwhelm ourselves.
Not saying no when we are asked to do something because it is easier that the projects we are working on is a quick way to become overwhelmed.
Feeling overwhelmed can quickly lead to a loss in productivity because most of the time, you can’t figure out where to start.
This causes you to start wondering when everyone is going to catch on to the fact that you have no idea what you are doing and down the rabbit hole you go.
We intimidate ourselves
Who are your mentors?
Are you learning from them, or do you expect yourself to be as great as they are and then hate yourself for not being at their level during your learning curve?
Unreasonable expectations are a quick way to intimidate yourself and cause productivity to stop.
We distract ourselves
You didn’t think I would miss mentioning social media, did you?
Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn can all be great marketing tools.
But they can be a huge distraction keeping you from being productive.
So what are some ways that you have found to overcome these rabbit trails?
