So in my other life as a Marketing consultant the company I represent has offered to pay for skills training. The training is to increase our knowledge of the industry and make us better at our jobs. I am a big believer in education and learning new things. This course was meant to last several weeks and we are set to wrap up at the end of April.
I have been slowly picking away at the chapters in the course and have actually been getting a lot from it. I love to learn so this is great for me. But I was not all that crazy about the timeline they gave us to complete the course. So I jumped in with both feet and completed the course this week, a full 6 weeks ahead of schedule.
I cannot tell you how good it feels to get that off my list of things to do. So often we put things off and put things off that require just a little extra effort so we can do other things we like to do or that require less effort. All the time we put it off it hangs over our heads like a dark cloud ready to rain down on us. We know we can do it, we know it will be good for us and we know that we must do it but we put it off.
I think most people know the feeling of accomplishment that comes with just getting it off the list but we still tend to put it off.
I highly recommend looking at the thing you must do but would rather not, dedicate a little time to it and you will be surprised how quickly it is done. It will require much less effort than the concern and worry you give by having it hang over your head.
Just go for it and get it down... FINALLY.
