If you are like me, there will be times when you really don't feel like doing what you know you should. Sometimes the drive and enthusiasm just disappears and it is really difficult to start the next task that was planned.
Well don't! Why force yourself?
Sure, if there is a deadline for it to be completed tomorrow and the consequences of not getting it done are huge...then you need to push yourself.
But otherwise, why not just leave it until you feel more like it. When you have more enthusiasm and motivation. That way you will almost certainly do a better job, you won't resent your ToDo List and you won't wear down your mental batteries.
However, this is not a recommendation that you put your feet up, laze in front of the television and do nothing. Instead of doing what you had planned, to something else. Do something that might be less important but something that will still move you closer to your goals. Just start a simple task and get a little done. That way you know you are making progress on your journey to a better place.
When you really don't feel like doing what you should do, don't beat yourself up - just do something!
