It’s those times when you just don’t feel like doing it…

Those are the times when you MUST.

Take right now for example. It is a nice day out there. It is quiet around here. My wife Kari and the kids are away so no distractions – I should be out playing! But, I promised myself I would work until 4pm today (it is now 3:43pm). I don’t feel like working the extra 17 minutes – but I know how important it is.

What about you?

Is there something you know that you should be doing – but are waiting to do?

Even though you are better off doing it today.

Human nature makes it easy to put things off. We learn from television, movies and our world leaders – what we don’t want to face today – should be put off for tomorrow – or maybe the next day.

Yet – putting it off is the absolute worst thing you can do right now.

Just doing it will start the inner process. When you break the chain of procrastination and get out there to do what you were waiting on – you create a neural connection in your brain that feels good about ending procrastination.

Doing another “to-do” builds another connection. And another to-do knocked off means the neural pathways are getting stronger, thicker and more resilient.

THAT is the secret to being great. Doing the things that must be done – despite your inner voice that keeps nagging you to do it later.

The majority of society puts things off “till tomorrow”.

What percentage of society is successful?

Less than 5%.

So if you are doing what the 95% are doing – you can expect the same results that 95% of the population is getting.

Or, you can push yourself to do that one last thing that you don’t want to do today – and you join the 5% that get this one simple point.

The top 5% of society does what it takes to achieve their dreams – I think you would agree – this is a much better group to follow and model yourself after.

For today, do one extra thing you have been putting off from doing.

And see how great it feels.

Tomorrow – one more thing.

The next day – another to-do knocked off.

Pretty soon, you have created a whole new habit that will take you wherever you want to go in life.

Be part of the 5% that do things… not the 95% that never get things done.

To your success,
