The Missing Step In Getting Things Done

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

Take ActionAs we conclude January and move into February for the year we probably can all have a good laugh now about New Year's resolutions. Ha. What were they again? You know why you feel that way? You are forgetting

The Missing Step In Getting Things Done.

It has always been this step.

     TAKE ACTION.

All the planning and prioritizing in the world will not get things done. You have to execute. You have to change the world. One foot in front of the other. The pile of laundry to fold on top of the dryer? Your hands need to be folding. It is called action. Don't make this harder than it needs to be.

DO SOMETHING!!!

A rolling stone gathers no moss. Do you have moss between your toes??? Let's roll!!

I hear this post loud and clear.  I have been waiting for business to slow down a bit so I can focus on hitting the gym hard again, but it just hasnt happened.  I guess priorities are hard to adjust.

Gary,

Maybe you are right, let's roll time back to New Year, so that we can now be more responsible, and will use the socond chance better... and then again (LOL)

My favorite part of planning is the action steps. My favorite part of action..... is implementing the plan. And it all begins with visualization.

It's amazing how much easier a task becomes once we stop procrastinating and take action.

The process of reaching a goal is so simple, but you're absolutely right that the last step is often a major road block. I mean, how hard is it to figure out what you want to do, put together a plan of action and then just do it? But for some people, it is.

Good Lord ...to do that I have to warm up the car,put on boots,mittens a coat and hat, scrape the windshield,clean off the snow, warm up the car....then...shovel out, drive on crappy roads and deal with all the other crazies out there trying to stay on the road! It's a BIG commitment....

And THAT is why Spring is our busiest season!
