Hey guys! Welcome back to QUICK TIP TUESDAY!
I’ve got another flat out basic tip to share with you today.
I’m in a cliché sort of mood, & there will be plenty of them in this post, you’ve been warned! ha!
I’ve repeated a variation of each of these following sentences every day for 2 weeks now:
Keep at it until it’s done.
Finish the job.
One thing at a time.
It started with the 1st week’s quick tip about setting the timer. I realized my to do list was getting crazy and I wasn’t feeling passionate about the majority of it.
Sometimes we needed to just do things and get them done and over with.
I’ll admit this tip is strange for me, because I have been a multi-tasking queen for as long as I can remember. Well I thought I was. Except I wasn’t really a queen at it, I just didn’t know it yet until I had a major break down and realized I had been sucking at everything I was cramming in.
I’m the type that almost always has too many irons in the fire, not enough hours in the day, etc.
I just want to be used by God each and every day, and please all the people that I can, and make a great big difference.
The trouble is that I can’t actually do all of that well when I’m trying to juggle too many balls.
So I set forth to start wrapping things up. I couldn’t just pull out completely, because I’ve wanted to stay true to my word, but I needed to finish each task I had before me.
Every time I started to feel overwhelmed I realized that if I would just chill out and get ONE thing done, that it’d actually be DONE and I could move on and get the NEXT thing DONE. It’s as simple as that.
We don’t need to do it all, all the time. And we can be quite a bit more effective if we keep a single focus.
I’ve been trying to teach my big kids this now too. Just finish a job, get it done, then you can move onto the next thing.
When we focus fully on a task, we can do it better. When we devote ourselves to getting something done we can be more present in what we’re doing.
My Challenge For You: Keep at it until it’s done.
Whatever you’ve got going on, just keep plugging away until you finish it. That’s all for now, carry on.
