worry and wins
worry: deadline urgency
wins self-assurance and (reflecting on past wins) “yeah i’ve done it before, i can do it again”
these are the 2 key items you need to possess to unlock “getting shit done”
a deadline gives direction and is pretty much the solo carrier of getting any tasks started.
we all start our work last minute. if the last minute was on a later date, the work would’ve started later too. it’s a terrible circle we live in but it is what it is.
wins is key to scale a difficult task. your past wins help you with that.
it’s important you don’t give up on something because of the difficulty. past wins remind you that you have done it before and you can do it again.
