To-Do List Got You Paralyzed? Do This!

Do you know what’s interesting?

We often learn the same lessons over and over and over again.

Take me as an example!

I relearned an IMPORTANT lesson today!

If you’ve got a lot of stuff to do on your to-do list, it’s easy to start feeling paralyzed. 

When I feel this way, I’ve found the best thing to do is just dive in.

Of course, everybody and their brother who’s a time-management or organizational expert has a formula for what you should do first.

There is plenty of advice available on how to rank your stuff and have a “PERFECT day.”

I believe most of what you’ll hear is just FAKE advice from people who don’t know much about the real world.

When you’ve got a big to-do list, and you’re feeling overwhelmed, all you need to do is DIVE IN.

So, when your to-do list got you paralyzed, you have to

  • Jump in…
  • Do something…
  • Do it all the way to the end…
  • Do it until you can’t do anything else!

If you just do that, by the end of it, you’ll be warmed up enough that you’ll know what you should be working on next.

And there is one more thing I’ve realized…

If you’re super-tired consistently and don’t seem to be able to get ANYTHING done…

You’re better off taking a day off.

You’ll be able to get MORE done if you take a break and come back to it!

The takeaway

When I’m tired, I end up screwing around with something for hours and hours and don’t accomplish much.

Most of the time when you’re tired, you won’t do yourself (or anyone else) any good!

When you’re rested, you can achieve anything you set your mind to in a lot less time.

So if you’re having “one of those days” when you’re overwhelmed, and your to-do list has you paralyzed, do this:

  • Jump in
  • Bust it out
  • Let the action warm you up
