PRIORITIZE! This cannot be stressed enough. You are already prioritizing everything you do subconsciously, but are you always prioritizing the right things? I love to have time to just chill, but nothing will get done if I don’t prioritize anything over me relaxing. How can I expect to work on any of my new projects if I can’t prioritize what is important to productive me over what is important to lazy me. No one said I can’t be both productive and lazy so let’s see how it’s done!
I’ve said this more than enough to get it stuck in your head, but I’m going to say it again: PRIORITIZE!
If you are like me, and you are lazy yet can’t stop thinking of new things to do, then this blog is perfect for you! If not, I’m sure you can find a way to relate to this somehow. Anyways, as I was saying: prioritize! To effectively prioritize, you should have a good idea of how long your days are or how much time you have to work with. Sleep is very important to me, so this is very crucial step if I wish to avoid a slothish lifestyle. Once you know how long your typical day runs for, then you can beginning visualizing and mapping out the next step.
The next step is figuring out what is important to every part of you in order to maintain a happy lifestyle. What do you want to do? Any projects you want to see finished? What’s something you want to do that is purely for your own satisfaction? Maybe you want to travel the world, or start your own company, or have a day to yourself to play video games. You can do all of that and more! You just need to know what is important to YOU. What do YOU want to do? Where do YOU want to go? How do YOU want to do it? The key word is “you”, because YOU have to want to do it and YOU have to be the one to do it. Now, once you have an idea of what you want to do, then prioritize it in the order you wish to complete those ideas. After all of that, it is time for the final step.
The final step is the simplest and probably the most obvious. Just do it. Don’t wait for a reason not to. Just go for it. I understand why this can be intimidating for a lot of people, but you must understand this:
There was a first time for everything. The first person to do anything didn’t know how to do whatever it was that they were doing. They didn’t have any teachers or any instructors. They probably didn’t even know what the hell they were doing. They just did it. Think it. Believe it. Achieve it.
