Sometimes you just gotta DON’T THINK JUST DO.

How often to we feel so overwhelmed by all the things that we NEED to do only to find ourselves procrastinating and put too many things on the back burner? Sometimes we just need to stop thinking and planning and take care of the immediate task in front of us.  In my case it’s this blog!  I can tell you about a hundred reasons why I haven’t posted but you know what? They would only be excuses.  So I’m not going to do that I am going to just type what comes to mind.

The other day I came across this interesting post on Facebook about how this guy wanted to emphasize that people shouldn’t focus on goals, they should focus on a process.  It was a very well thought-out article and and interesting read/perception indeed.  However, after reading the comments on the article I couldn’t help but witness the majority of commenters totally missed the point of the article.  Some were even content with just simply saying “Yeah, that’s why I never set goals” which is absurd to me.

Here is what I wrote in response to the article:

I encourage you guys to read the blog article: Forget About Setting Goals. Focus On This Instead. I would love to know what you guys think of the article!

  1. These are great tips! I’ve never actually run a garage sale before, but whenever we actually get a house this is going to be a must for as many times a year as we can. I had feeling cluttered with junk and some of this stuff I imagine I could get a few bucks for instead of trashing it.

  2. I read the article– the only point I’d say I would really agree with is #3, “Goals suggest that you can control things that you have no control over”. That is true.
    I think it is still important to set goals. You can set systems, but if you don’t have a goal in mind that you want to acheieve then that system will be pretty useless because you don’t have anything to work for. Setting both goals and systems to reach is the best in my opinion. For some of my online projects I have been writing down goals or things I want to acheieve and planning out how I’m going to do them, for me seeing a concrete plan or at least having a starting base is good.

  3. I’m one of those people that I’d rather get things done now so that it won’t be in the back of my mind nagging me the whole time. I like to get it done so that I can sit back and relax. Like, I’ve finished my Christmas shopping nearly 3 weeks ago and I’ve got most of my presents wrapped too. Now I can spend the holidays enjoying myself instead of running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off because I’m trying to find presents at the last minute. I did this to keep myself from getting stressed out. I find myself doing a lot of things to make my life a litter easier, whether at work or at home. It feels so much better than putting it off.
