I am a big believer in going easy on yourself. A lot of us have a tyrannical inner voice that orders us around and makes us feel guilty when we don’t complete everything on our mammoth to-do list. I believe in challenging that voice, mainly by asking if we really need to do all those things today. Usually, some of those things do not really need to be done.
But what about those things that absolutely have to get done? How do we muster up the motivation to do the dishes or the laundry when we simply don’t feel like it? Answer: You don’t muster up the motivation. You just do it.
You won’t always feel motivated to do certain tasks. If you wait around until you feel like doing that task, you may end up never getting it done! The good news is once you start working on it, often you’ll “get into it,” and before you know it, you’ll be done.
Just do it. It’s a good mantra to use on those dreary tasks.
