What Do You Want Done?

ChecklistIf you could only get one thing done today what would it be? Would it be something for your business? family? personal?

Would you start that project you’ve been thinking about? Or maybe you’d finish that project you’ve been trying NOT to think about?

Would you take that book that you want to finish and curl up on the couch or head to a park and spend the afternoon reading?

Maybe you’d treat yourself to some pampering or call up a friend and catch up or go out to dinner.

Would you take your kids out for ice cream or a movie, just because?

Would you pick up your significant other early from work and spend some much needed alone time with them? Or maybe plan an impromptu date night?

What would you really like to be doing? What’s stopping you?

Are you too busy? Can’t find a babysitter? Can’t afford it? Admit it, those are just excuses.

How can you still have that experience that you want and work with the constraints you might have?

Too busy? What’s your real priority? How can you free up some time?

Can’t find a babysitter? When is the babysitter available? Work with her/his schedule. Alternatively, can you include your kids in the experience?

Can’t afford it? Can you have a similar experience from home or a park?

Now, these questions might be helpful for what you want to get done today or the reasons (or excuses) that it’s not getting done. Hopefully, these questions provide a starting point.

So, if you only got one thing done today, what would it be? Share in the comments below!

I Can’t Wait for Today!

Have you ever said “I can’t wait for tomorrow” or “I can’t wait for Friday” or “I can’t wait for today to be over” or anything along those lines? Yeah, me too. I don’t think it’s possible to go back and count how many times I’ve said some version of that.

Have you ever said or thought “I can’t wait for today!”? I was talking with some friends the other day and one of them said that she put a note that says “I can’t wait for today” in a spot that she sees it everyday. She was going through a rough patch and was counting down the days to the weekend. Then she realized, why do I need to wait for the weekend? What can I do today?

So, what are you waiting for and can you start working on it today?
