The Law of Diminishing Intent

Comments Off on The Law of Diminishing Intent
The Law of Diminishing Intent states that the longer you put off doing something, the less likely you are to do it. This is the difference between people who get what they want and the people who don’t. People who get what they want are the action takers. They decide what they want and they take action towards getting it - immediate action.

Short Cut to Calm

Comments Off on Short Cut to Calm
Feeling stressed out and worried can be exhausting. There’s the trying to get everything done, and that’s tiring enough. Then there’s the extra energy that it takes to worry, and the tension caused by stress. All that leaves us even more drained. When we’re stressed and spinning, it can help to short-circuit the action. Maybe we started off our day with something that caused a cascading domino effect of stress. Maybe it’s been intense for days or weeks, or even months. Whatever the case, when you catch yourself in stressed-out mode, or you notice that mind has sped off on a track of worrying, a key to returning to calm is to stop that action.

Today Is Unwritten

Comments Off on Today Is Unwritten
A wonderful thought to have at this very moment, right where you are, no matter how much of this day has gone or how much of this day is still to happen. Whatever’s left is … yet unwritten. Words, ideas, images, experiences and feelings on the pages of your life book have yet to be experienced. It never gets repeated again so hold for just a moment how precious it is that you are alive, you have this moment and that you get to choose a never-again repeated day.

Clutter

Comments Off on Clutter
I’ve been helping a friend pack up her grandmother’s stuff. She wasn’t a hoarder, but she still ended up with a house full of largely worthless stuff for my friend to get rid of. It made me ponder on what I keep and what I get rid of. When we keep something that we haven’t used for five years, why are we doing that? Is it because we are scared to get rid of it, we think we might need it one day, it was a gift?

Self-Limiting Beliefs

Comments Off on Self-Limiting Beliefs
For many of us, we have a goal that we desire in life but there is something in the background working against us in achieving that goal. This is known as a self-limiting belief. The Top 10 self-limiting beliefs are: I’m too old. I’m not smart enough. I’m not educated enough. I’m afraid of trying and failing. You have to have money to make money.

Putting Off Tasks

Comments Off on Putting Off Tasks
We are all well aware that life is busy. At times, it may feel like it’s far too busy for us to keep up. This means that we can put off tasks that should be done. The following are some tips to help you move forward when you find you are putting tasks last on the ‘to-do’ list day-after-day or week-after-week and in some cases month-after-month. Identify the task that you are putting off and do the task. Don’t start or do anything else until you have done that task. If the task is something that is too difficult, you don’t have the skills, or even too trivial, then consider delegating or outsourcing. At the beginning of each day, most time management experts recommend that you number your tasks that you intend...
