Make Things Happen | Right Now
Tired of cramming? Exhausted in beating deadlines?
Don’t settle for mediocre things just because you ran out of time.
Sometimes, it takes a lot of energy to get things started or get things done but making things happen give you a sense of accomplishment and productivity.
You’re about to be introduced to some potent methods to help you make things happen, when you want to.
Here are three power-tricks to have up your sleeve:
Establish Crystal Clear Goals
The goals you make in life is a north star, it provides you direction and purpose. Without goals, you would likely be staring at a broken compass – lost and indecisive. Set goals that are attainable, time-bounded and significant.
Always remember, “Set your goals high, and don’t stop till you get there.” – Bo Jackson
How to succeed?
Reach your goals with passion and perseverance
Set Your Priorities
“The things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
List the things that need to be done and then classify them according to importance or urgency. Prioritizing things shows what you value the most.
Using Stephen Covey’s Quadrant, you can sort out things into four quadrants:
• QI – Important and Urgent
• QII – Important but Not Urgent
• QIII – Not Important but Urgent
• QIV – Not Important and Not Urgent
Stop Procrastinating (Not Doing Sh*t)
“I will do it later. I can do that tomorrow. I still have time.”
Procrastinating is irresistible but keep in mind that time is never running counter-clockwise. Before you know it, deadlines are crashing and time is up. Why wait for later for what you can do now.
To make things happen, remember, there’s no better time than now.
If it can be done in 5-minutes, do it now.
Maximize your time and manage your time efficiently. Make things happen – because you can.
You can’t make time stop nor slow it down.
Do what you can do today.
Making things happen is within the magic of your hands and the passion burning inside your heart.
