No matter how often we plan our day, we seem to overplan and sabotage ourselves. We find ways to avoid things - confrontation, conflict, making decisions, doing the stuff we don't like to do....and it is all in the name of making sure that we like ourselves in the process.
(that is called procrastination sometimes!)
Fact is, we usually don't. We sabotage ourselves by subscribing to limiting beliefs - I can't do it, I am not good at it, It won't work.....when are we going to stop that? And how are we going to stop that? Here are a few tips:
Decide on a maximum number of appointments to have in a day and stick to that number. If the week fills up, then move onto the next week.
Keep focused on your plan...this will lead you to your goals. By looking at your task list daily and eliminating the items that do not lead you in the right direction, you will make room in your day and reach your goals faster.
Be confident in your skills. Find time to develop yourself - read, attend a workshop, participate in a webinar, find a mentor, get a coach (two different people, btw). As you continue to grow, so will your confidence.
BEST TIP EVER: Read 'The Willpower Instinct' by Kelly McGonigal
It is truly life-changing and helps you to focus on the I will, the I won't and the I wants that lead to that sabotage. I have to say I have the paperback (old school) book and the audiobook on my ipod. I listen and check things out pretty well everyday!
What helps you get away from limiting beliefs & focusing on developing Willpower?
