Learn this simple life hack to make your life better!
Want to get more done and experience less brain fog in your life? This one principle can 10x your productivity every single day.
What is it?
The “Do It Now” Principle.
We’re all guilty of doing it, or waiting to do it that is.
But Procrastination costs us mental and emotional energy as well as time, because anything left until later is usually more difficult (dried on spaghetti sauce anyone?).
“Do It Now” means that you take care of tasks in the moment rather than waiting until later or allowing yourself to get distracted. Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today.
Don’t put off until later what you can do now.
Benefits of the “Do It Now” Principle
Procrastination hurts you! Putting tasks off until later creates a mental drain which saps your physical, emotional and mental energy.
Doing tasks NOW has several benefits:
- Reduces mental fog.
- Increases your productivity.
- Expedites your time management.
Many times we put off tasks because we think they will take a long time to finish, but MOST of the time those tasks will only take a few short minutes and completing them will free your brain power to be used for other more important tasks.
Examples of the “Do It Now” Principle
So here are a few ways you can begin implementing the “Do It Now” Principle in your own life.
-Clean up the dishes as you’re cooking.
-Wipe down the bathroom counter while you brush your teeth.
-Recycle the junk mail as soon as you bring the mail inside.
-Replace the empty toilet paper roll immediately.
Where I’m Winning With the Do It Now Principle
Where I’m Good at This:
-Wiping up spills.
-Using the squeegee on the glass shower doors after I shower.
-Watering my plants as soon as I walk the dog.
Where I Struggle With the “Do It Now” Principle
