IF YOU SAY THIS

 

 

THEN TRY THIS

I don’t have time

 

Spend 30 minutes on it

 

I don’t like doing it

 

Do one thing you don’t like

Do one thing you do like, etc.

 

It takes too long

 

Time it to see how long it really takes

 

I’ll do it later

 

Do it in your “prime-time”

 

Takes too much time

 

Make a spot for it to work on it a little at a time

 

I’ll put it away later

 

Put it where it belongs now – then you’re done!

 

Only I can do it

 

“SHOWER” Power:

Show,Help,Observe/Watch,Encourage,Release it

 

I don’t want to do it

 

Delegate, barter, hire

 

I don’t want to start it

 

Start today: reserve and plan time each day ‘til done

 

Something else is more important

 

Re-evaluate/Reprioritize

 

It must be done my way

 

Get a life! 🙂
