How many times a week do you tell yourself: concentrate, think of what you need to do, do it!….
Lately I have asked these questions about 10 times a day. I feel I lack concentration, motivation and direction. Bad things to be missing! Especially if you have your own business and feel stuck. The more I tell myself move, do something, get out there, the more I feel de-motivated, stuck and empty. The harder I push myself the more I push back. End result? Angry, frustrated and lost.
This morning I woke up I re-took my morning yoga (been 6 months since I last did the morning greeting), then I went with the dogs out for my morning walk in the woods. I don’t know if it was the yoga, the beautiful weather or just the tiredness I feel of not achieving what I want but I suddenly remembered that when I feel like this I take a piece of paper and write the things I want to have/achieve and the things I HAVE to do. I use a system (from Get clients now!) that helps me get organized and be in purpose. The structure I create for 28 days helps me to feel organized and know where I want to be at the end of the 28 days. The nice thing is that this system supports me in 2 things:
1. I have space for failure and give myself permission to be
2. At the end of the 28 days I get a gift – something I choose to give myself
I look at my chart every day, a couple of times a day. It helps me to keep track of my thoughts and actions and I feel motivated because I life in purpose. There are many ways you can structure your thoughts, needs and actions. The important thing is you stop, look at what you are (not) doing, what you want and need and find a way to be focused and motivated. A price at the end of the time you determine will help you.
So start the week by getting your thoughts organized and prioritize your wants/needs. Write them down or draw them but make sure you see them at least twice a day. I am sure you will feel focused and motivated.
Enjoy your week
