If you watched my last Youtube video you would know that I said I would have more tips for slowing down and getting things done!! I am such a big picture person and I often forget to focus on the things that are right in front of me. I have so many ideas in my head, but thinking big picture takes me away from the planning stages. Thinking big picture makes me an impatient person, when I should be trusting God’s time! It is not bad at all to have big dreams, I love all of my big dreams. But it’s time to sit down and start planning for these big dreams!! Who else is going to use this summer to jump start on their dreams!?I am using this summer to jump start my dreams!!Click To Tweet
So here are four more tips that I use to get stuff done!!
Put that phone on DO NOT DISTURB. I can put my phone on do not disturb and even turn off messages, so that I will not even see that I got messages. I tend to check my phone a whole lot less when it is on do not disturb.
Technology has become a HUGE distraction for us. Personally it always takes me double the time to do something when I am looking at my phone while doing work. So I set my phone aside with my timer and get things done! Watch my last video to hear how I use my phone timer.
Remind yourself that it is okay not to get everything done. I feel like I always have a to do list. I also tend to look at everything as a priority and I have to remind myself that not everything is a priority.
What has made this a little more simple for me is have priorities for each. So one day is for working on blog stuff, another day for looking for jobs, etc. I am still getting used to this, but I know it will help me in the long run. Also, because I am doing this I only have a certain amount of task for each day.Not everything is a priority! Figure out what means the most to you and start by doing that!Click To Tweet
Always do your best! Friend if you’re doing your best, that is all that matters!! God made us all very unique and someone else’s best is not gonna be your best. We all have different gifts and it’s time that we become content with the gift that God has given us.
We’ve got to stop letting comparison drive us apart. If you find it difficult to be thankful to rejoice at someone else’s new opportunities or progress, pray that God will change your heart. Comparison only fuels a bitter heart and it will steal all of your joy, honestly.
REST This is the biggest one! I am not sure why we think that it’s better to busy, but nope. Being “busy” isn’t cool at all. It leads to burnout and loss of passion. Y’all even God rested.
2 And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made. Genesis 2:2-3
31 Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” Mark 6:31
And so many other places in scripture talk about rest! Find ways to rest that are going to fuel you to keep motivated! For me that’s exercising! When I exercise it gives me confidence to pursue my goals! Find a way to move your body and stick to it!
