You see… Even the best fail at things. Not that I’m considering myself one of the best per se, but it’s good to know nobody’s perfect. The thing is, I’m failing at my productivity plan.
I got stuck about a week (who am I kidding, few weeks) back, with the spring fatigue going around and I’ve been feeling down ever since. I come home from work, fall down in front of computer and watch old TV shows over and over again. Not really productive, but truthfully I haven’t had energy to do much anything else. (And I still don’t, but I’m working on that) Here and there I try to do something out of the day, but most of the attempts infamously fails. Yup, my own plan failed. Now let’s see how to rebuild it. Warning: It can get rough. Hopefully this will shake you and wake you up!
Don’t expect things to just fall in place.
I might watch too much TV and sadly, reality is different. There’s no faith, no destiny. Things will happen and get done if YOU and only YOU will work your ass off for them. There’s no other way around it. Fight for your productivity and your dreams!
Doing productive things doesn’t become a habit so easily as eating whole chocolate every day.
We all know it’s true. You have to consciously make a decision, do something, and then it comes the hardest part. You have to REMIND YOURSELF TO STICK TO to that decision, otherwise you’ll fall back to the old habits too quickly to develop other, better ones.
Cheat days are allowed.
Just don’t make them a regular.
Pathetic excuses won’t bring you anywhere.
Tired, stomach too full to do anything, you’ll do more tomorrow? Yeah, right. Don’t lie to yourself, rather than justify doing nothing, admit that you’re a big lazy ass, the guilt might even help you get off it.
You might be totally happy right now, but you’ll regret it in the future.
It’s totally understandable staring into the TV shows is making you completely content in that particular moment, but you might regret it later. Isn’t it better to do something with and of yourself while you still can? You can have Sex And The City marathons every night when you’re in the nursing home.
