Develop a sense of urgency.

Developing a sense of urgency will push you to take fast action and complete tasks, resolve problems, and grab opportunities quickly, so you can get a lot more done in a day.

Instructions

  1. Develop the habit of fast action by repeating, “Do it now! Do it now! Do it now!” whenever you are faced with a task you don’t really want to do.
    If you find yourself becoming distracted or slowing down, tell yourself, “Back to work! Back to work! Back to work!” over and over to refocus your mind.
  2. Select one area where you tend to procrastinate, and develop the habit of fast action in that area.
  3. Move rapidly in every important area of your life.
    When you see an opportunity or a problem, take fast action. When you are given a task or responsibility, complete it quickly and report back immediately.
Take action!
