Ever noticed how once you put something off, it’s easier to put it off again? That’s because every time we avoid doing something, we essentially go around it, and inadvertently carve the groove of going around it deeper. That’s why it’s easier to slide along the old, well-trodden pathways than it is to forge new ones–the old ‘behaviour tracks’ are already laid down.
But if we persevere and keep doing the new behaviour, this too, will become a track that’s trodden and worn and then this new behaviour will become easy too.
There’s an old saying about procrastination and it’s this: if the first thing you do in the morning is eat a live frog, then nothing worse can happen for the rest of the day.
Brian Tracy, a star in the human potential field, says that your ‘frog’ should be the most difficult item on your ‘to do’ list, the thing you’re most likely to procrastinate on–because if you eat that first, it’ll give you energy and momentum for the rest of the day.
And, it will cut the rope that connects you to something that’s dragging at your energy.
