I keep on stacking my plans and my expectations. Every day I find myself waiting for the perfect moment to start, a time when I would have a free range of time blocked out just for the creative work. For writing epic text and recording amazing videos that I had planned months earlier.
...And just last Thursday I had that day I had dreamed of! I was happy and full of energy with my morning coffee.
Just as I was supposed to start, I found myself taking a random phone call. Turned out to be nothing that could not have waited for another day.
After the call I took a sneak peek at my email and got sucked in. 45 minutes later I found myself in a brain fog. What was I supposed to do today?
Soon the lunch time was already approaching and the dog wanted to take a walk too.
By 2pm I was dissapointed with myself. I hadn’t done a single line of creative work and wasted the better half of the day already.
Today I looked back at my Thursday it became obvious. The avalance of things appearing urgent is constant no matter how well you guard your calendar. I used the urgent looking things as my excuse for not starting what was important.
This morning I decided to try a silly productivity hack that I read about on the weekend.
Looking back at my morning, I’m amazed. It worked like magic. Without even realising I nailed my top-3 of the day way before the kids woke up.
As it turns out, the unlock to productivity is not the awesome plans and expectations you build.
The bigger the expectation, the harder to start!
The key is to simplify everything to a point where getting started is easy.
Just sit on your working chair and do that one small think right now!
I believe that the best thing entrepreneurs can do for the world post-corona is simple.
