10 Ways to Do It Now

 Your life is a series of moments in now. The better you make your now, the better your life. Karen Salmansohn

Success will never be a big step in the future, success is a small step taken just now.  ~ Jonatan MÃ¥rtensson

Do you dilly dally or just do it to get things done? Here are 10 ways to stop procrastinating and take action now:   

  1. Be prepared: Be clear of what you want to do and get ready the tools you need to do the job. Don’t give yourself excuses when the time has come to act and you are not able to find what you need to do the work.

  1. Just do it: There will never be a better time and the best time to do anything is now. The door of opportunity won't open unless you act now.

You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don't try.

  1. Think of the consequences: When you let your work pile up and when you decide to   work on it at the last minute, you rush about and work under stress to get things done. The results are that you produce poor quality work and make mistakes. You may need to spend more time to correct your errors.

  1. Bite-size pieces: Plan ahead and organize an assignment so that you can do a small part of it every day. Before you know, the assignment is completed as days go by.   

We cannot do everything at once, but we can do something at once.  ~ Calvin Coolidge

  1. Your goals: Think of your goals and think of what you want to achieve in life. The satisfaction of reaching your goals is a great incentive to get you moving immediately.

  1. Motivation: Motivation is the driving force to take immediate action. There is a reward or a sense of achievement in getting something done right away.  

  1. Overwhelmed:  Trying to do too much in too short a time discourages you to take prompt action. Have a short to-do list and concentrate on a major task. You feel good about yourself when an important job is accomplished.

  1. Distractions and interruptions: To be able to concentrate on the task at hand is the best way to get things done smoothly. It means avoiding disturbances that can interrupt the flow of your work. When you work, don’t think of anything else or try to do anything else like checking emails or go online.

  1. Avoid stress: When you are stressful, you are in no mood to act and do work. One effective way is to stay fit and healthy to withstand the pressure of work. The other thing you can do is to meditate or do deep breathing exercise to stay cool, calm and collected.

  1. Discipline: Can you manage your time according to your plan or to-do list? When you discipline yourself you manage time effective .There is no delay or hesitation to get things done.  Be resolute and act.

Happy people plan actions, they don't plan results. ~ Dennis Wholey
