Your list is not a problem

Your list is not a problem

A list of unfulfilled things isn’t a problem to eliminate. It is a challenge. 

  • Prioritize your goals.
  • Do one thing that matters out of all the possibilities.
  • Say no to all the things that don't meet your criteria.
  • Be content with the one thing you did instead of being unhappy with all the things you did not do.

Not enough time

It feels like there’s never enough time to do all the things you have in mind.

You want to exercise, eat well and be healthy, You want to do great work, learn a language or guitar. But years slips by while it remains just an idea.

Time is limited, but, your attention, energy, and enthusiasm are more limited than your time.

Start creating habits. Inertia is a bigger enemy than a lack of time. Start doing the task for a few minutes a day. If you have only 10 minutes, use it. If your time is fragmented, cut your task up and spread it out. You'll be surprised how much materializes.
Our fears drive us

We say we have no time, but we really fear getting started or making a mistake.

Face your fears first. If it is important, do it. If it is unpleasant, do it now. You'll find that it was not so scary after all.

Focusing on the average makes sense when you're hoping to sustain something, even if it is not always a perfectly easy and consistent output.

It works when you are already putting in a bit of effort, but want to improve that effort over the long-term.

IDEAS

If you think motivation is mostly rational, pay attention to what motivates you. You might not feel motivated because your current opportunities aren't that good.

If you think motivation is biased and nudging is necessary, create rules, systems, and habits to move you ahead. If you can't motivate yourself for months or years, your project may be at fault.
