The Thing is to Get the Work Done

“The thing is to get the work done.” –Dale Carnegie

Getting things done is the name of the game.  Based on your ability to do this, you define your self worth, you get praise in the form of words, money and status, and you build your life.  Why don’t we all get things done?

This week’s theme quote, above, is an ideal I hope to always embody (although as of yet, I’m not the productivity queen).  That’s where affirmations and focus come into play.  This week, instead of daydreaming and non-focus, I’m going to get the work done.

It took 5 hours at Starbucks for me to do well today.  How can you get your work done?

How to Not Worry

Worry is the worst.  It makes you feel horrid, it deteriorates your health and it causes you to look like hell.  Nobody wants to worry, but everyone does.

Worrying is hard not to do, unless you know how to combat it.  I found four things to be true in order to not worry:

  1. Keep Busy…no time to think means no time to worry.
  2. Decide On Your Passions and Pursue Them…how can you not love life if you’re having fun?
  3. Keep Away From Toxic People…say no to worriers, unsupportive friends and negative nancys.
  4. Be Knowledgeable…when you aren’t prepared, you are in a highly anxious state.

How can you incorporate these principles into your own life?
