Why You're Not Completing Important Tasks

  1. See task list.
  2. Do things that don't really need to be done today.

What happens at the end of the day?

  1. You don't complete your most important stuff.
  2. You work on stuff that ain't so @^% important.

The "Maybe" Tasks

You have a viciously important proposal you want to send to an important prospect.

Your task list:

  1. Proposal for Prospect
  2. Decorate office

Your thoughts:

  1. "Hey, I can do the proposal for the prospect later on today! YAYYAYA!"
  2. "Let's decorate the office now!"

4 p.m. approaches, and you still haven't gotten to that proposal.

You're still stuck doing a million "things that can wait for tomorrow" -- and procrastinating on the vital things you want dominated today.

You know why we all suck at completing the things we totally want/need to get done?

  • We do "things that can wait for tomorrow."
  • We do "things that can wait for tomorrow."
  • We do "things that can wait for tomorrow."

Meanwhile, we think there's time later on in the day to do our most vital tasks.

But, the more we wait, the likelier we procrastinate on those tasks until the end of mother-^@!$^@!-time.

Boo.

Reprogram. Mind.

Before you do "things that can wait for tomorrow," try this:

  • Do nothing else until you finish what you want done today.

That is:

  • No TV.
  • No newspapers.
  • No blogs.
  • No decorating offices.
  • No yaddas.

...until the viciously-vital-things-for-the-day get annihilated.

That is:

  1. "I will finish this proposal.."
  2. "I will finish this project..."
  3. "I will finish my calls..."
  4. "I will finish my workouts..."

...before I do anything that can wait for tomorrow.

First things @^%$ first.
