We all want to accomplish things. What stops most of us is not motivation, but a lack of discipline to get things done. This can be a major obstacle in achieving your life goals. We are going to offer some great tips to help you get things done.
Stop Procrastinating and Begin Chipping Away
Think about the great pyramids in Egypt. Do you think they just built them overnight? They took decades of work. One of the greatest accomplishments ever was done using our mantra of chipping away (literally in this case).
You may feel stuck in a project and not know what to do next. This often leads to putting it off for a while. These things can drag on and eventually you never complete your goal.
Just do something. If you are about to write that great novel and don’t know where to begin, just start writing random words and sentences. If you want to learn something new, but it seems very difficult, you can begin by reading the first couple sentences of a book. Don’t feel guilty if you did not get much done. 1% of something is that much closer to your goals compared to doing nothing. Do you want to get more fit? Just do a little activity each day, but be consistent. How about weight loss? Again, you just keep at it.
Many great achievers use this method without even being aware they are doing it. Nobody knows all the answers, but some people seem to find them better than answers. Often, their “secret” is not much of a secret. They just keep chipping away each day. Some days are more productive than others, but they never get discouraged. It is that type of personality that separates people who achieve great things compared to most people.
Are you ready to start that next big thing? Just start chipping away. It will happen, but only if you start!
