My Life - My Organizing Stories My 5 Favorite Ways to Make Things Happen in My Life With everything we have going on in any given day, it’s no wonder we’re so good at making excuses like “I can’t today...I have to take my kids to soccer practice” or “I wish I could learn that, but there’s just not enough hours in the day.” If you truly want to do something in your life, you have to start with a strong commitment to doing that thing. The second you start making excuses for yourself is the second that you’ve basically given yourself permission not to do that thing. Here are my 5 favorite ways for making things happen in my life 1. Remove the excuses: Rather than making excuses about why you can’t do something, make declarations about why you CAN do something. 2. Remove the obstacles: Determine what your obstacles are, and then work on removing them. Want to go to Italy, but can’t afford it. Consider a different job, or an additional part-time job. Want to lose weight and you’re finding it a challenge. Empty your pantry of all junk food and only go out to eat twice a month. 3. Remove the fears: What’s holding you back? It’s important to know so that you can conquer those fears...by yourself, or with the help of someone else. Perhaps you want to reconnect with someone and you’re scared of the rejection. Ask a good friend to stop by tonight, and help you click that “Add a Friend” button on Facebook to get you started. Want to go skiing, but it looks too scary. Ask a relative who skis to go with you, and start off with you on the bunny slope or take you cross-country skiing to get you used to being on skis. 4. Make the time: Everyone is busy, but look at what some of the busiest people (Ryan Seacrest, Oprah Winfrey, Martha Stewart, the presidents of countries around the world) have accomplished in their lives. Find a way to fit it in. Eliminate TV viewing at night. Get someone else to clean your house. Ask a neighbor to watch your kids once a week. Set up a carpool with another parent for dance practice, so you’re only responsible for driving once a month. If you really want to do it, get it on your calendar. 5. Start chunking: Don’t overwhelm yourself with too much at once. Break what you want to do into small, manageable pieces. For instance, if you’d like to learn piano, commit to applying the concepts of a piano book for 20 minutes each evening or a page a night, or commit to weekly lessons and daily practice. Every chunk you accomplish will get you that much closer to accomplishing whatever it is you set out to do.
