You might be reading this because you have been one lazy bum lately and you need that little reminder to get you back in action and kick some serious butt. So if you are that person that has been procrastinating a lot lately, let’s go over a few reasons why you should just get moving and just finish the damn thing already. I’m not trying to hurt anyone’s feelings, I just want to see you succeed. Some of these responses are more serious than others…..
So here we go……. here are my hypothetical responses to your excuses for not getting your work done.
I’m pretty sure your cat will be open to cuddling later. Get your work done.
If you get it done today, you don’t have to worry about it tomorrow. That is one less thing on your shoulders, back burner, or where ever you have been keeping this task.
If this task is part of a pretty big project, just remember this, the little steps we take add up really fast over time. Putting in the time here and there is not that hard. Seriously. Just get to work.
Netflix can wait.
Twitter can wait.
Facebook is dumb anyways. Yeah, I said it.
Google plus will still be there tomorrow.
C’mon. Get it done.
You know how it takes 15-20 minutes to make a pizza? That’s 15-20 minutes of getting some work done while you wait. Guess what? The harder you work the faster that pizza will be done. Time flies when you keep your mind busy. Get it done.
The more work you get done, the more work you can take on. That means more awesome in your life. Not to mention, that could even mean more free time in general. When we don’t get things done, even if we are busy watching Netflix, it’s on the back of your mind. Like an old ball and chain. Get it done and you will be set free.
Get it done because then you can share about how you actually got it done. When you say you have “stuff in the works” for like 5 years with nothing to show, that’s pretty lame. Be the cool kid and brag about it. You deserve to celebrate what you accomplished. There’s no parties for the people with just ideas. That’s weird. If there is one, please invite me though.
Those games on your iPad won’t help you grow hair on your chest. Do the work. Get it done.
Your Pinterest boards aren’t going to make your house look any better with you just categorizing everything by color. Get your butt to the hardware store and get it done.
Too tired? Too bad. Grab a cup of coffee and get to work. Get it done.
Out of coffee? Get to the store and buy some. Get it done.
Store closed? Break in…..just kidding, but seriously find some coffee and then get it done.
This list is only scratching the surface of scenarios, but you get the picture.
Get it done.
Because, honestly, it feels damn good when you do.
