“Do something today that your future self will thank you for”
I have been wondering what I’m doing with my life and what my next step will be ever since 2018 started. The crazy thing is that even though I know what I want and how to get there, sometimes I feel like I’m not seeing the results I want.
There are times when I want to give up on pursuing my dreams but then I think about my job right now and living the rest of my life as an employee; it really depresses me. There is no way I can stop now. I ask myself, “Why am I so lazy? Why do I procrastinate so much? Do I know how much I could achieve if I stop quitting and just do? How will I feel next year this time?”
Then, there are times of the month when I feel extremely tired; it’s ridiculous. It’s like I exhaust myself during the days so when I get home, all I want to do is sleep. Regardless, of how I feel mentally and physically, I am determined to make some changes in my routine and I wanted to share them with you.
Let’s examine them:
- Do it now – I like to have things done before the due date but whenever I remember, I just tell myself I’ll do it tomorrow, the thing is, tomorrow never comes. I decided to refuse from procrastinating and avoid having work loaded on to me.
- Take a break – I was watching the series, Castle (Season 3, Episode 3, Under the Gun) where Rhoyce told Beckett, “Sometimes the best way to solve a murder is by taking a break.” Now, I am not saying that you should go and solve a murder, but when it comes on to building a brand and you’re not sure what direction you’re going or how to get there, the best thing to do is take a break.
- Ask for help – Maybe it’s the pride within me, but I HATE asking people for anything, the truth is, when we need help with building our brand, we need to ask for information, seek knowledge.
