Just get it done..!
Do you also sometimes feel you just aren’t getting anything done? If so here are three simple steps to use to guide you: Just do it: Yes, sometimes we just have to decide to go for it. A motorist stopped at a small town motel, “How’s business?” he asked the owner. “Not very good,” the tired looking man answered. The customer nodded sympathetically. “So, what’s your next step? Do you think you’ll look for ways to get your name out there to build up business? Or are you thinking you may have to close?” “Well,” said the owner dryly, “I’ve never made enough in this motel to stick with it, but I’ve never lost enough to get out of it. I’m hoping to do one or the other this year.”
Here was a man who needed to mak e a decision – one way or the other. But he just didn’t do it! You have to decide to just do it. Do it now: One farmer decided to raise a few sheep. He bought a fine ewe, which soon gave birth to two lambs. However he had no pen in which to keep his sheep and a wolf ate one of the lambs. The farmer remarked, “Well, I guess I’d rather have one fat lamb than two skinny ones” and decided to accept his fate and not build a fence this year. A few days later the wolf killed and ate the second lamb. This time the farmer reflected, “I supposed it’s all for the best. Now the ewe won’t be bothered with them.” With no lambs left, he again chose to wait on building the fence.
A couple weeks later the ewe was eaten up and the farmer became more pensive. “I know it’s all for the best, but I’ll be darned if I can figure out how.” Foolish fellow isn’t it? But a lot like many of us; we have to do it now, when it has to be done! Do it right: One poet put it like this: “If a task is once begun, never leave until it’s done.Be the labor great or small, do it well or not at all.” Many may say that not everything has to be done well all the time. But ask yourself, “If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you find time to do it again?” I have a friend who likes to say, “Slow is fast.” What she means is that if I will slow down and do the thing right, I won’t have to redo it later. Slow is fast.
So remember: Just do it, Do it now and Do it right. Then people won’t think you were another Narasimha Rao..!
