Why Things Pile Up

Laundry, your to-do's, that pile of books, bills, appointments ... there's a simple reason why these things keep piling up.

You have a habit of telling yourself, "I'll do it later."

Because you aren't ready now.
You don't have what you need now.
You can't focus on it now.
You're too tired now.
You don't feel like it now.

& the way we do one thing is the way we tend to do most things. 

So when you're applying this thought habit to almost every area of your life, things tend to pile up in lots of areas.

And you end up looking around at all of your piles and to-do's and unmade appointments and think: there's too much to do and I don't even know where to start.

Which has you feeling overwhelmed, shutting down, scrolling on your phone, doing the quick and easy thing ... and not deciding on where to start now.

This keeps you in the cycle of, "I'll do it later.

If you want to break this cycle you have to start now - not by force or willpower but by asking yourself questions like:

What's the smallest piece I'm willing to do right now?

What would be easy?

What would be fun?

What do I want to do?

Where could I start?


& get started now. Remember, 1% action WILL create change. The smallest little bit counts.
