How great you’ll feel

Right now the task ahead feels so overwhelming it can stifle your creativity and drain your energy. The job you must do is itself hampering you in getting it done.

The good news is, that’s all in your mind. And you can change your mind in an instant.

Visualize the work as already being done and imagine yourself looking back at it. Feel the satisfaction, the relief, the sense of accomplishment, the desire to repeat your success.

As you imagine looking back on the work, take note of how you did it. See and feel the innovation, the persistence, the creativity, the pure exhilaration of being purposefully productive.

Bring yourself and your vision back to the present. Now you’re ready, able, and well-equipped to get busy.

Not only do you know what you must do and what steps you can take to do it. You also have a preview of how great you’ll feel when the task is accomplished, and that energizes the efforts necessary to get it done.

— Ralph Marston
