Friday challenge: Tackle that task you have been avoiding.
On select Fridays I will pose a challenge to you, the reader, to improve your lives and careers in some small way. Do you accept the challenge?
We all have them, those tasks we know we need to get done but for some reason, we keep putting them off. I have more than I should. Most of the time they're not crazy difficult or painful. They're just things we don't want to do.
Time to tackle them.
You don't have to go after all of them, all at once. Just pick one that has been staring at you for weeks, months, perhaps longer. Get it done.
The best time to do it is now. If now is not practical, schedule it. Write it on your calendar for when you will get it done. Guard that appointment jealously so you don't break it once again.
Then, when you complete the task, celebrate. Bottle up the good feeling you have for the accomplishment, even if it was a simple task. Use that memory to motivate you to tackle the next postponed task before it drags on like the last one.
I just put one on my calendar. Here's to getting things done!
