Based off the title here we can all say that this has happened to us at some point in our lives, we go to start something thinking “Okay here we go, we can do this, time to be productive.” then we come face to face with the tasks we have set for us to do and what happens!? We stand in front of it wondering and pondering on which task to start with first……I tell you if that doesn’t mess with your brain a bit, then you must be the worlds calmest person. A lot of the time I have this problem where I have so many ideas going around in my head and I never know how to just pick one thing to do and so when that happens I start to get discouraged and then I end up not doing anything at all which isn’t good I know, because then you’re not giving yourself the chance to make progress in what you’re doing while also not letting yourself succeed at something. So what do you do when you have all these ideas and or tasks to take on, but aren’t really sure which one to start with first!?
Well it’s pretty simple just pick one, it’s really not as complicated as we make it seem in all honesty, although we may have a lot of different things to do, we don’t really need to make it as stressful trying to choose which tasks to take on first, just choose one and focus on it. For those who are probably thinking “well it’s easier said then done you know!?” i’ll agree with you there yes, it is easier said then done, so if you’re one of those people who have a hard time picking something to do, maybe you can try some randomization to help you choose, what do I mean by randomization you ask!? Weeeell i’m talking about one of those wheel of tasks things if that makes any sense……Let me elaborate, okay so if you’re ever in the middle of trying to decide which task to take on, maybe trying a different approach compared to just pondering what to do first will help.
Try Being Creative For One: Maybe if you make your decision making a little more fun then it will seem a little more easier for you (Only when it comes to your ideas or writing, if it’s super important then you’ll have to rationalize and take the important ones seriously) back to what I was saying………..say you have two video or blog post ideas you want to do, for example: you want to do a blog or video idea based off planets and what it would be like if we lived on Venus instead of Earth (oh wait I just gave myself an idea, thanks self i’m using this) you can use it as well if you want to put your opinion on what you think it would be like, but anyway, you want to do a video or blog post about what it would be like living on Venus instead of Earth right!? but you also want to do a blog/video idea on what it would be like if you had your very own Funko pop (for those who don’t know what Funko’s are they’re just little collectables, I have a few) so which one do you choose!? Do you chose living on Venus or what it would be like if you had your own Funko Pop!? hard decision to make right!?
Well how about trying this, put those two ideas in a hat/jar which ever you prefer or you can write it down on a board or paper, close your eyes and then just hold your hand out move it back and forth and which ever one your hand lands on that’s the one you do first or you can just pick from the jar or hat and see which one you get, why make it difficult when you can just be creative about it (i’d try this).
Now say you have more than two ideas, maybe you have 5 you want to choose from, just do the same thing I talked about a minute ago when it comes to being creative and having to chose which ideas to work on first, that way if it gets stressful you have a way to make it none stressful and have it becomes a lot more easier for you to get things done quicker, plus you’ll have fun. You can even do more than one idea on the same day if you really want to, just choose 2 ideas you’re really feeling up for and do one in the morning if you’re a morning person and one in the evening if you work better that way, you can even do one at night if you’re a night owl. If you really wanted to, you could take one of those ideas and make a video about one and write a blog post about the other, It’s all about what your preference is, so whatever works for you, you can just focus on doing that, sometimes being creative can really help boost your brain and get it going.
Now let’s talk about important decision making, when it comes to having to really focus on something really important, the creative way may not always work………but that doesn’t mean it still can’t be simple, yeah sure when making important decisions it may cause us to have a headache from time to time, but we can still try and make it a little bit easier. Here’s how if you’re wondering:
Go Through Your Important List And Choose The Most Important: You might be confused right now so i’m gonna do my best to make you unconfused, there are a lot of things we find to be super important on our list and we have to choose which one of those things are top of the list important, so what do you do!? Well depending on what you have on your list as super important, you would need to really sit down and ponder which one of those tasks you need to put more of your focus on, now I could chose examples, but I don’t really have the best ones, but i’ll still give it a try………hmmmm let’s see……..oh okay say you have on your list: Need to go grocery shopping, but then you also know you have to do some decluttering in your home, which one do you feel needs to be at the top of your list the most!? Some may say grocery shopping, others will say decluttering, which ever one you think should be number 1 on your important list write it down. If you’re ever stuck on what to focus on the most just look at your list and think to yourself (don’t over think it) but just take a look at the list you have in front of you and just go over all the important stuff that’s there and number them based on what’s really important and what’s not as important.
Doing the stuff that’s really important first, helps you really break down everything and just makes your important list a lot easier to handle, if you just lay everything out and write it down and really analyze your list of important stuff, then you’ll be able to really work things out better and make everything less stressful and much more calmer in your busy productive schedule and or day. If you find yourself having trouble balancing everything out, try asking a friend for help, maybe they can try and sort some balance out for you so that way the tasks you have at hand don’t become too overwhelming, plus it’ll help you deal with everything a little better, you’ll have someone there to not only help you with your day, but to also help with ideas, whenever you’re struggling to come up with some yourself and you’ll also have someone to keep you on your toes whenever you’re going off track. Having someone there that you trust to help you stay on your feet and organized really does help a lot.
Annnd that is all from me for now, If this post helped you in some way and you were able to take something from this, please feel free to leave some feedback with your thoughts if you like and if you have other ways or ideas on how to get started on something when you don’t know where exactly to start, feel free to share. Who knows maybe your ideas will help someone else out and I too might possibly adopt your ideas as well, anyway I hope you all have a lovely night/morning and or evening 🙂
