Trying to do it all and being able to do it all is two different ballparks. Anyone who tells you that they are doing everything, completely on their own, alone is definitely running major game. Let’s face it – you can’t give your 100 to everything you partake in because parenting, living, working, and being you is a time-consuming job. It isn’t as easy as self-help YouTube gurus make it seem, it takes training and self-control.
I know this first hand because a couple days ago, I started a challenge called 6 Daily Impossible Possibles. The objective is to complete daily short term goals and record my commitment by vlogging (video log). The process has not been easy even though the goals aren’t difficult. My daily tasks are very attainable but shaking off the dust and convincing myself of doing it is tricky. I like to think of the challenge as stepping stones to building a healthy habit of finishing daily task while preparing for immediate future task.
A professional prevaricator like myself have to take it slow and easy. One day at a time. So my quirky daily task include things that are kind of simple such as cleaning, cooking, exercising, working on my blog, completing homework assignments, engaging with my family and following through on getting things done - like making doctor appointments, home repairs, and completing my taxes. I figure once I am able to start and sustain a daily habit of making 6 impossible but possible things happen then I will be able to increase my short-term goals from daily challenges to weekly, monthly, yearly!
I am interested in you joining my daily 6 Impossible Possibles – what are some daily actions you can take to build healthy habits that create tracks to lead to your long & short term goals?
When I started this blog, I had no idea where I was going with it. I just knew it was something that I had to do, try, and see for myself. I have watched myself grow a little each day by rereading my writings and watching my videos. Now after almost three months of blogging and being a YouTuber I want to do more.
I decided to start a web series called The 6 Daily Impossible Possibles. The goal is to document my life through the art of completing impossible tasks that are possible. My reasoning for this 30-day plan is to condition myself into believing that simple tasks are reachable. I just have to do it. My best friend has always been procrastination, and I want to get rid of her. So, I think being aware of short term goals will eventually lead me into planning long-term goals that will help me become aware of what it is I hope to accomplish - more personal growth and development.
My daily six impossible possibles consist of small attainable goals such as washing dishes, getting myself together, reading a chapter, exercising, cooking, cleaning, developing myself and working. These are goals that I semi concur a couple of days out of the week, but I need to do better. Every time I succeed at one trivial task, it will eventually lead to a larger objective that is easily manageable. The hardest thing (as with everything) is finding and sustaining the motivation to continue the daily struggle of achieving the six impossible possibles.
Some days I am sure that I will falter other days I will do more. Long as I accomplish something that is impossible possible I will be happy.
