What this means is you will have to act as if that pile of work is already finished even before you've started the task. Or that your mortgage or credit card debts are already paid even when you're making the payments! When you truly act as if it is DONE and get out ahead of the struggle you immediately release all tension and fear. This will open you up to getting out of the perpetual loop of searching and into the perpetual loop of receiving. By allowing things to happen rather than micro-managing, it releases clinginess and the universe can then Act as it should and all things become a mathematical certainty. Letting go and having fun, enjoying the moment moves you forward, while your "wants" hitch a ride along with you.
There's an interesting saying, "If you want to know where your heart is, look where your mind goes when it wanders." Does it wander to thoughts and emotions of fear, worry and confusion? Or does your wandering thoughts lead you to feelings of excitement and enthusiasm? Either emotion you choose notice how they're all based on expectations of future events. Whether you're sending signals of positive expectations or negative depends entirely on the actions you have taken in the past and at the present moment.

We all know what procrastination is, but do we know why we do it? Experts explain that procrastination is not as clear-cut as we believe. Sure it's easy to understand putting off washing the dishes and the laundry simply because we don't feel like doing them. But what about when we put off doing the things we want to do; such as building a successful business, learning a new skill, or losing weight. Why do we continue to make-up excuses and put off achieving what we want to achieve? Psychologist believe procrastination stems from many causes, with the main cause being FEAR. Of course we don’t fear the dirty dishes, but many of us are afraid of some, or all, of the following situations:
Do you find yourself coming up with great ideas, but lack the ability to put them into action? Here's an easy system that will save time and bring your most productive ideas to life. 1.) Write ideas on Paper. If ideas come to you sporadically, then keep a memo pad with you at all times. It may be easiest to have a brainstorming session to write your ideas all at once. I call this the INCEPTION phase. 2.) Choose three to six of the most promising ideas. Those are the ideas you'll concentrate on and let the rest of your ideas go "for now." Do not try to work on too many ideas that you don't do justice to any ONE of them. When choosing the most promising ideas, use your best judgement "for now." DON'T WORRY IF ITS NOT GOOD JUDGEMENT AT THIS POINT . . . just do it. I call this the BIRTH phase.
If all other time management tips have failed you, try the easiest method available. Schedule tasks in time blocks. Example: Set time to do paperwork from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and a time to run errands to be anytime after 1 p.m. Unless an errand is a dire emergency, it can wait. Chances are the errand won’t be that urgent that it can’t wait two or so more hours. Start now and get control of your time. See an example of a Time Block and Blank Form below.
Below is a list of some of the best tips from the Woman's Day article "GET ORGANIZED" by Rebecca E. Greer. Plus, I've added some of my own. Hopefully you will find them beneficial in organizing your day. • Set priorities. Rank items in order of importance and do the most important first. • Always plan your errands so you do a whole group on one trip. If somehow one item was missed and you need to go back, take something else that you forgot to handle with you, such as; recycling or dry cleaning drop off. • Cut unwanted calls short by posting a list of handy excuses ("Something is boiling over on the stove") by
Unless it's money, do you really need to save all those items you say " you may need someday?" If old magazines, clothes, shoes, unfinished projects, old eyeglasses, old tires, scrap pieces of lumber, metal, tubing, and other miscellaneous items were money, some people would be MILLIONAIRES. So before you clean those carpets, wash those windows and dry clean those curtains, ask yourself some very eye opening questions. While going through each room, closet, drawer and cabinet make note of the items you have stored away and ask yourself, " when was the last time you used those items?" If your answer is a year or more, or better yet, you can't remember when the last time was when you used that item, then your answer is a good indication that you no longer have use for it. Either rid yourself of any excess items by holding a garage sale, donating to Goodwill, St. Vincent De Paul or donate to your favorite charity or to a specific needy family. With an uncluttered environment you will achieve greater sense of freedom, time to mange your daily life, a better home environment and even a more productive life. So don't put off comfort and efficiency. Start now! The following are a few ideas to put you in control of your home or business, rather than the other way around.
