31 Days of Finishing – Day 31: Do the Scary Thing
What “scary” things do you have on your secondary to-do list? I have several of them and they’ve been there for a l…o…n…g… time. Why? Because they are scary to even think about doing.
Sometimes I let fear make my decisions for me. And when that happens I don’t feel so good about myself. But today, I took charge of my fear. I told myself even if it is a bad outcome, I am going to tackle ‘THIS” to-do item today.
I made a phone call and then followed up with an email. HURRAY, me! I took action.
Moral of the story? The total time was less than 31 minutes. But the benefits to that call will be great. I feel proud of my action. This action reinforces the idea that I CAN do hard things. And I feel energized to tackle another hard thing today.
I did. I made two hard phone calls today! The 2nd one didn’t turn out so well. But I am proud I took care of it. The feeling of finished is much better (imho) than the feeling of dread.
And I am finished with this series. The feeling of finished is definitely awesome!
During this month of October I am joining LOTS of bloggers hosted by The Nester who will be writing every day about a topic. My topic is about finishing. I will spend 31 minutes each day on a to-do item (from the secondary list).
I will write about it and share any productivity tips I find helpful to FINISHING things.
