Doing What You Say You’ll Do
If you're not doing what you say you'll do, there's a breakdown in one or more of these areas:
- Plan well
- Focus on the next task up on your list/calendar
- Expect to not want to do what you planned
- Know how to talk yourself into the doing the thing (more than just once!)
- Create a compelling why
Repeat steps 3 & 4 until the thing is done
Here's what I want you to know: It gets easier. Being someone who follows through is both a habit you form and identity you create.
The more you follow through, the better you get at planning. The more you follow through, the bigger the identity of you being someone who follows through gets.
The bigger that identity gets, the less of a question and debate it is in the moment of whether or not you'll do something. You'll feel more energized throughout your day because the back and forth is what is currently draining your energy, not the actual doing of the thing.
If you want to learn how to plan well and do what you say you'll do, book a complimentary consultation call with me to see how coaching together can help.
