But I don’t want to work today

Be wary of “mental health days”.

Every once in a blue moon, you may well and truly need one. I have found; however, that what I really need is an order to my days and the ability to “turn off” work on regularly scheduled days (maybe it is Saturday or Sunday), but right now, it is rarely both.

Having one day a week that you can count on as “I don’t have to think about work day” really does help you recharge.

Otherwise, you find yourself escaping into “mental health days” far too often on days you should actually be working.

Rinse & Repeat

Do the first right thing. The easiest one on your list to accomplish. There! Well done! Now, pick the next right thing to do. Spend a day like this. Then the next. You’ll be shocked at how much gets done.

Sometimes, when I feel overwhelmed, I set a timer for 15 minutes. Ok, I do that a lot. It turns the chore into a game and makes it easier to do the task at hand. Try it. You may just have discovered the hidden key to your success.
