Getting Over a Holiday Hangover with Action

holidays productivity tactics Dec 03, 2019

I've received a LOT of emails from customers telling me they feel stuck after the holiday. They are out of sync and unmotivated. I think we all are... even me.

Remember, don't follow your feelings... create them.

If you are feeling out of sync, unmotivated, or anything other than "I want to finish this year strong"... I'm challenging you to flip that!

The best way out of being stuck is ACTION!

Pick something to do that you've been feeling bad about not doing and DO IT ASAP!

When you do what you know you should be doing regardless of feeling... you will feel better when you're done.

Tactic: Pre-plan your day with Time-Blocking.

Write down everything you want to accomplish tomorrow and then, based on priority, schedule it into your day tomorrow. Schedule EVERYTHING! Even showers, meals, phone calls, surfing the internet.

This tactic will help you see how much time you have (or don't have). It will also naturally motivate you to get moving.

If you feel overwhelmed by this, remember, these are things that have to be done anyway... or things you don't need to do and should drop. If you don't have an accurate view of where you're placing your energy, you'll be at the mercy of whatever is going on around you.

Nothing cures stagnation like moving forward. Small steps! Let's go!
