The Best Productivity Tip

There’s one extremely simple productivity tip that you need to start implementing today:

Just Get Started

Yes, it’s really that easy.

If you’ve been procrastinating on starting a project, going to the gym, making sales calls, learning a language or writing a book this tip is what you need to get going and take action.

The problem with all those tasks is that they’re really daunting.

Going to the gym to work out for an hour when you’re out of shape and you’re not really sure what to do?

Very few people would be racing down to the gym to get started. You’re not alone.

Want to write a book?

Writing chapters and chapters, pages and pages… Potentially months of work? That’s a big project to start. No wonder you’re procrastinating.

Learning a language?

There’s so many aspects to cover: vocab, grammar, verbs, listening, speaking…Where do you begin?

Just Get Started

That’s where the idea of “just getting started” comes in.

You can use momentum in your favor to get the ball rolling and get your project started.

Set a timer on your phone for 5 minutes.

That’s all you need to commit to. 5 minutes. Easy.

Nine times out of ten, once I get started and finish working for just 5 minutes, I want to keep going.

The hardest part for me has always been making the decision to get started.

No more thinking about it. No more planning it out.

When you head down to the gym, knowing that all you need to do is 5 minutes, it becomes so much easier.

When you’ve done a few bicep curls and spent a few minutes getting your heart rate up, why not do another 5 minutes?

Before you know it, you’ve been working out for 30 minutes and it wasn’t that bad.

It was just the build up to it, the fear, the procrastination…

Once you get started, you’re well on your way.

Keep thinking in 5 or 10 minute chunks.

What can I get done in the next 10 minutes that will put me closer to my end goal?

Write another two paragraphs for my book?

Make one phone call rather than thinking about the twenty calls you should be making that day. Just start with the first one. Don’t worry about the rest.

Learning a language?

Pick one word that you’re going to learn in the next five minutes. Write it down. Look it up in the dictionary and use it in a sentence.

Try this technique right now.

What is something that you’ve been procrastinating on?

Set your timer for 5 minutes and just get started!
