Have you ever had the thought…
‘I wish there were more hours in the day!’
If so, STOP IT NOW.
How do you feel when you have that thought? Stressed? Overwhelmed?
What do you do when you are stressed or overwhelmed? Procrastinate, jump from one task to another, get distracted.
And, what’s the result of that? You don’t get everything done that you want to get done. And all that does is confirm the thought ‘I wish there were more hours in the day.’
What if you asked yourself a question instead?
A question like ‘How can I get this done in even less time?’ Or, ‘How can I get this done in four days this week rather than five?’
When you ask yourself questions, your brain looks for answers. It may provide an answer like ‘I can’t be done in that time!’, but that’s when you choose not to listen to it. Instead, ask your brain:
‘What if it could?’
‘What do I need to say no to so that it can?’
‘What notifications and distractions do I need to turn off’
‘How can I be even more effective right now?’
Rather than repeat old thoughts that don’t help, such as ‘I wish there were more hours in the day’, ask powerful questions that move you forward.
