I hate when I feel like I wasted my fucking day. Everything’s planned. On my off day, I’m gonna do this and do that. This will be finished and that will be finished. But nothing happens. The only things I did was sit down, surf the web, spent a couple of hours watching videos on LiveLeak, browse on SlickDeals to look at deals I don’t have money to buy. You get the drift. We all do this. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to waste a day or two, but it feels more rewarding when you take the day by your fist, and you say, “I fucking kicked your ass, today.”
MAKE A TASK LIST AND CROSS THAT SHIT OFF
The most successful productive people understand this. It’s not rocket science, but often times, people are too lazy to do this. Start your morning by sipping on your cup of coffee and creating a task list for the day. It doesn’t have to be everything you want to complete. You can always add more task throughout the day. It can be something as simple as ‘buy dog food’ to ‘finish painting the bedroom walls.’
There are a couple of reasons why this is beneficial. The first reason is because it’ll keep you on track. Once you complete a task, cross it off your list. The second reason is because it’s something tangible that will show how much ass you kicked that day. Imagine that it’s night time. You pull out your list and see nothing but lines one after another confirming all the accomplishments you had that day. It’s fucking amazing.
DELEGATE THAT SHIT
You’re not superman. You can’t do everything on your own. Delegate your task and get other people to help you. Think about this, you only have so much time in the day, right? On top of that, you only have so much energy to give. You can’t create more time and energy by yourself, but you can cheat by getting others involved. If you can’t go buy dog food, ask someone to help you. If you’re a slow and horrible painter, I’m sure one of your friend’s pretty handy at that.
The most important thing about delegation is getting people involved in your life. Often times, people are too gung ho on being ‘self-made’ and ‘one-deep.’ Let your pride go and ask for help. The happiest people understand that human interaction is important for the soul. Don’t let a day full of task get in the way of missing out on the opportunity to spend time with the people you love. They can help you.
SPREAD THE LOVE
Delegation goes both ways. I get it, you have shit you need to do. But don’t forget to go out of your way to help others. We all have shit we need to do. Reach out and ask people how you can help them. Life is one big fucking puzzle that I’m still working on, but one thing that I know is that it’s rewarding to help others. Spread the love and show people that you care. Don’t get too bogged down in your task that you forget to make people smile. People like to spend time with you for a reason. When you’re too focused in your own world, you forget about the people around you. Don’t let that connection go, but rather make an effort to keep it going.
Everyday is a great day, however; it’s all dependent on what you make of it. Like I said, I hate when I feel like I wasted my fucking day. You’re reading this article, because you hate it too.
So once you finished reading, make sure you grab life by the fist, and put forth the effort so you can say, ‘I fucking kicked your ass, today.’
