5 ways to motivate yourself; Remember, small check lists are less overwhelming

Today’s Tip – 5 ways to motivate yourself; Remember, small check lists are less overwhelming –

Writing out 40 things on a “to do list” can overwhelm your mind. So, cut it down to 10 things you need to start on. Finish those 10 things and add 10 more when you are done. This method will also give you a sense of accomplishment as you fly through your smaller list. This motivates your mind to want to accomplish more. When you see before you a huge list of 40 things to get done, even if you attacked and completed 15 of those things the list would feel like you didn’t even chip it. And you’ll want to just take a break… for who knows how long.

When cutting your large list down this also gets your mind working. You start thinking about what is more important than other things. This is a method to help you organize yourself. You might want to attack all the easy little things first. Or you might want to skip the easy things for later while you dive into all your objectives that will take a good junk of your day away from you. I like to mix the two. Start with a few small task, then after 2 or 3 easy to dos, I jump on one larger task. So every list has at least 8 easy things to jump on and 2 harder tasks.

At the end of each day don’t fret. If you only completed half of a list containing 10 tasks, you still go through 50% of your needed tasks. You can easily add 5 more things to the list, starting with the 5 you missed the day before. It’s okay to not finish your list, then take it on the next day. Always add enough to equal ten, just so you have a continuous goal to set forth. Your mind wants to see you have things to get to. As long as you are showing it a smaller list, you will be fine. Try not to get into a habit of saying “Oh, I will get to that tomorrow” and skipping. Stay on course.
