Are you struggling to get things done?

Do you have lots of thoughts and ideas you want to make happen?

Well then all you have to do is drink all the coffee! I kid … that may not be the best way to get things done.

Yeah, I think we all have been there a time or two or more. And it can feel overwhelming on where to even get started.

And truthfully, this is perhaps the epitome of normal. We all get overwhelmed, even the seasoned idea generators and creators will feel lost on where to get started.

This could very well mean you need to take some time out and off from your everyday doings. Just allow yourself to be and do nothing.

I know recommending doing nothing when you want to get things done seems ridiculous but just maybe you need some downtime to reenergize your creative juices.

Here are a few tips to help you along:

Turn down the noise

Noise can be anything that is distracting you – too much family drama, too much social media, too much watching what everyone else is doing. Maybe even too much TV all of this can interfere with you getting things done.

Decide what you want to do

Pick one thing of those thoughts and ideas. Go with your heart, intuition or close your eyes and point your finger. Make a decision on what’s calling you to get done in this moment.

Make time to do the thing

Plan it into your week, schedule it and then execute it i.e. act. If you don’t know how to do something, do some research and allow you to guide you along.

Extra Tip

Give yourself a deadline for your projects and goals. Having an end date can help your schedule and reduce the feeling of flailing all over.

One of the things I suspect will happen is that your creativity is going to be on an upswing and you can’t help yourself but to focus on your own thing or many things.

And all that matters then is to rinse and repeat time and again.
