Ok I decided to open up a new category here called “Ask Myrko”. This is where you can send me your questions and every Thursday I will pick one that I think is interesting for most people and answer it. I already got hundreds from you (from those of you who signed up on my newsletter […]
Are you looking to get motivated again to get your ohh so important goal done? But somehow it feels so difficult to get your butt up to at least just one tiny little step forward, right?
It’s just not happening…
And how can you fix this and get your motivation up when you need it? Like… right now?
Today I want to share a very simple, yet very critical time-management skill that usually is underestimated.
But not having this skill can seriously sabotage your best efforts to get things done and to move towards your goals in life.
The skill I’m talking about is to say no — primarily in your mind — to everything that is not what you really want.
I will exercise regularly.
I will wake up early.
I will lose that weight.
I will eat more healthy.
How many times have you started something like this only to realise that you never finish doing it? How many times have you tried to eat more greens only to fall back to having none at all? Or perhaps start exercising more only to stop three weeks into the program?
But why is it so difficult to make a new habit stick?
If you are having difficulties starting productive into your day, wasting time checking emails or facebook, reading news or watching videos, then this might be the cure for you.
Honestly, this is the simplest and best productivity habit I know of. Since I have implemented it into my own working day my productivity doubled — at least!
I call this killer productivity habit: Start with #1.
I’m just in the process of shooting the final videos of my upcoming personal development course (more on that soon…) The final module — “Effective Action” — is all about getting done what we’ll have planned in the earlier modules.
So lately I did some interviews with other time-management experts and also people just trying to improve their productivity level. I just wanted to dig really deep and understand the different types of productivity killers that everybody of us is fighting with…
So let’s see what your productivity killers really are…
I just had a real revelation when I was stopped cold in my creative work by what seemed to me a really difficult problem. I thought about the solution for days. But I just couldn’t find an answer that was really satisfying to me. I was stuck.
And here is the surprising but genius solution to getting unstuck: When you are stuck, just move on with your next best idea.
Instead of thinking and waiting and thinking again, just move on! Use what you currently have and make a step forward.
