In the beginning of September I started on Victor Pride’s 30 Days of Discipline program. It’s a bit of a challenge and one of the tasks of the book is getting actual work done during the day. This is what I’ve been enjoying the most out of the program and where I also needed the most help. If you are interested in my progress at all, follow it here.
I have talked about pushing past your mental boundaries of doing work before on here, but I have never harnessed that feeling into something. After a few days of forcing myself to sit down and work on my projects and get tasks done every day, I have come to call this “The Push”.
When you recognize that you should buckle down and do some work, instantly your mind starts flooding with other stuff you should do instead that is distracting. The Push is the mindset that you are going to finish the work and not think about anything else until it’s completed lest you ruin your whole day.
Part of the power of The Push is that I’m somewhat insane. I try and convince myself that if I don’t finish out a task to it’s completion, my day and more importantly my attitude will be ruined. So I may as well just finish the damn thing and get it done.
How to achieve The Push:
- Start your work.
- When you get distracted by something like a thought, or impulse to check facebook, remind yourself that if you don’t finish your work, your house may burn down. (The Push)
- Finish work to it’s completion.
- Go clubbin.
Simple as that folks. Go and do likewise!
