Suppose if you can finish your task 20% a day, you may estimate it takes 5 days to finish the job. But it is not true.
What really happen is you can finish 40%, 50% or even 60% on the day you started.
If you take action now, then the most difficult point is already cleared. The difficult point is your decision. As long as you hesitate to start, nothing changes. But your actual action will change yourself and your environment.
To complete from 80% to 90% will be more difficult and time costing but now you know the way to go and it makes you feel easier. To make it completed from 90% to 99% is more difficult and to make it 99% to 100% is almost impossible.
Here are some hints to make your job easy.
Take time for the preparation. It’s waste of time if you notice some vegetables are needed and going out to a super market after you start cooking. Before starting, read your recipe, check your inventory, estimate how long & how much it costs. If you can do this, you are already a good hose wife.
Another reason that you cannot start working right now is that you do not know what to do with this task. Take time to understand the task and break down into small tasks. Suppose if you have to take contact with 100 companies, start with 3 companies now. Then you will find a way to handle 100 companies more effectively. Make it simple and practical word to create a sub task.
Start now if you don’t know what to do
Anyway take 15 minutes to start now if you don’t know what to do with your task. After 15 minutes, discuss with your colleagues or report to your boss . Even only 15 minutes experience will make you more eloquent to your job and you (they) will find a way for your better job.
Alway focus on a single task. Multitasking will harm your brain. The effectiveness will go down. But if you find five minutes for free, like waiting for a taxi, sitting in a bank, spend this free time to start working. If you have to create a proposal document to your customer, note down sub titles of your proposal sheet.
