Finish one thing to feel better

Too many open loops. That’s a guarantee for misery.

And the more open loops, the higher my stress. And the higher my stress, the more likely I am to say “yes” to something else and create a new open loop.

Into action. The solution is to:

  • say “no” to new stuff;
  • delegate “doing” to someone else if possible;
  • Then sit down and do one thing and one thing only until it’s done.

I already said “no” once today. An easy, obvious “no” but still I take credit for it.

I already delegated “doing” to someone else today.

Now I’m sitting down to do something to “done”.

And it’s not even 10 am.

Go me.
