It’s Day 5 of the Get Stuff Done 1×31 Challenge.
Today’s mission, should you choose to accept it, is to picture it done. It, of course, being the most insistent thing on your Get It Done 1×31 list.
It doesn’t matter if you don’t know the first thing about photography. You don’t need fancy equipment. If you can take a selfie, you can do today’s task.
All you need is a way to gather evidence that you can, indeed, get stuff done.
It’s easy to forget the many decisions, mistakes, educated guesses, hunches, and hallucinations that get you to the Promised Land. How many times have you accomplished a goal and moved right on to the next one without taking a single second to savor your success?
This will not happen on my watch. Not this month. This month you will share the love!
The thing about to-do lists is that they never really get done. You may be able to cross everything off your list on Tuesday, but by Wednesday you already have another list waiting.
So give yourself a break. Or in this case, give yourself some proof that you are evolving and moving steadily towards your goals. Even if they are moving targets.
Here’s what I’d like you to do.
Knowing what we now know about anthems (thanks to Day 4), feel free to turn the following statement into a little jingle along the lines of the chorus to Beyoncé’s Single Ladies song. (If you liked it, then you shoulda put a ring on it).
If you did it, then take a picture of it. (Sing it with me now.) Let me repeat….It being the most insistent thing on your Get It Done 1×31 list today.
This way you will have solid evidence that you have not only done what you set out to do, however small, but you’ve done it consistently.
A picture is worth a thousand doubts about your ability to get stuff done.
By the time you have taken a picture of at least 31 things you’ve done this month, you may never consider yourself as a slacker again.
Feel free to post your pictures in the comments below.
