It’s a glorious day here in Central Ontario today! We had some thunderstorms last night, and the humidity finally broke. I’m feeling so energized and ready to dive into the week ahead and really make a dent in my to do list.
And I finally got some golf in last night for the first time in a couple of weeks! So, that was good even though I tweaked my shoulder a bit. It’s a good thing I have a chiropractors appointment this week because I think we’re going to try and play 18 on Saturday to get ready for next week’s tournament.
But before that, I have a ton of work to get done this week, and of course, there are always lots of goodies to share!
So, let’s get started with today’s read…
Today’s Read: Deadlines and Discipline: Don’t Let Them Get You Down!
Okay, so this week I’m working on some serious productivity planning, and I wanted to address a couple of things that I know I personally need to work on. Those two things would be meeting deadlines and beefing up my self-discipline.
Deadlines don’t have to be a problem unless you’re a procrastinator or lack the self-discipline to get stuff done. Kind of the same thing when you think about it – and I know for myself that I procrastinate until the absolute last minute, and then I have remarkable self-disclipine to sit at the computer until the project gets done. But that’s a really stressful way to run your business, and you end up like I did on Saturday – so tired and worn down I slept almost the whole day away!
So in order to improve, I found these five ideas:
Idea #1 – Change Your Self-Talk
Changing your self-talk from “I should do this” to “I must do this” is a good start and changing the way you work. Should implies you have a choice, but if you’re on a deadline there is really no choice but to get the work done.
Idea #2 – Remove Temptations and Distractions
My biggest procrastination distraction is the Food Channel. I like to keep it on in the background, and it’s way to easy to stop working and watch an episode or maybe two of something before getting back to work. The obvious solution there is for me to cancel the cable tv… and yes, I’m seriously thinking about it.
Idea #3 – Build in Down Time and Rewards
Forgive yourself, take days off and build a healthy reward system for your goals and to-do lists. Good results don’t happen consistently if you are constantly running on empty or jumping from deadline to deadline with no opportunity to reward yourself and be proud of your accomplishments. Golf, anyone?
Idea #4 – There Should Be Consequences
If you’re the one who sets the deadlines, what happens if you don’t meet them? If achieving your goal is the end result, the easy consequence is that you don’t get what you want or that it takes longer to get it. I don’t necessarily believe in punishments as consequences – my idea is to keep a poster of your goals somewhere that you can see it and remind yourself every day that the consequence of not working is that you don’t get the things you want!
Idea #5 – Become more Self-aware and Reflective
Keeping a journal can be really helpful here. Record things like your “must do’s” for the day, whether you got them done or not, and why not. Pay attention to your own strengths and weaknesses – is it time to outsource the things you keep putting off? And reflect at the end of each day on what went right, what went wrong, and what can you do tomorrow to get better?
Building up your self-discipline to meet deadlines isn’t a one-day, flip the switch process. But if you keep these ideas in mind the next time you’re tempted to blow off work for another episode of reality tv, you’ll get there!
