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?
