Since I am feeling a bit inspired I thought I would share some things that might motivate and inspire you as well!
A dear friend of mine gifted me with a bracelet a while ago, but I have recently discovered how precious her gift to me was. Engraved on it was a great saying; “NOTHING is impossible” from the front and “IF you BELIEVE!” from the back. Wearing this special bracelet and thinking of these words inspired me to work harder. These words remind you that you truly are capable of anything as long as you believe you are.
Put something in your head today or this week that you never thought you could do, challenge yourself. Trust me, you will be surprised with results, I was. You can start with something small just to test it, it doesn’t have to be huge but it better be realistic.
In addtion, there is this other thing that’s been pushing me to be on time lately which I advise you to try. You probably heard about it before, changing your clocks. Move all your clocks and watches one hour forward. You don’t have to change all the ones in the house, I’ve settled with changing the ones in my room only (including my electronic devices). I found this trick useful as it gives me the illusion of having one extra hour to work or do something that needs to be done. If you have a due date at 7 a.m., for instance, you will work on your task keeping in mind you need to submit it by 7 a.m. on your time. If things do not go as planned (which might be the case many times)… guess what?! You still have one more hour to work on it.
Also, each time you look at the time and realize its ahead, you just feel relief that it isn’t as late as you thought it was. Some may find this technique weird or unnecessary but you’ve got nothing to lose if you try it… one day maybe? If I liked it then maybe you will. Or if you think one hour ahead is too much, you can just change your time 15 minutes forward to improve your early/ on time habits.
