Behind every action there should be a purpose! What is your purpose to start Pilates workouts? I’ll let you know mine in the video!
And watch here a new Pilates workout for this week. Do it with purpose!
I struggle with To Do lists. They always have a negative touch to me. They sound like “you have to do”!
Does that sound familiar to you?
During my daily kitchen cleaning routine I often listen to an inspiring video, radio show or podcast. Last week I listened to a workshop from Tony Robbins. As a motivational speaker he was talking about the To Do list.
Here is what I learned and immediately implemented into my daily life and want to share with you:
- capture all your to do’s
- categorize them or create clusters. I built clusters for kids stuff, household, business and me
- ask those 3 important questions to each task: 1.What do I really want (result), 2. Why do I need what I want (purpose), 3. What do I need to do (massive Action Plan)?
- Then plan the Action: What is a must? Minimum/Maximum Time
Here is an example I made for doing laundry:
Category household, 3 questions to answer:
1. What do I really want (end result)? clean, fresh clothes back in the closet.
2.Why Do I need that (purpose)? We want to reuse our clothes. And we like good smelling, clean clothes.
3. What actions: put laundry in washing machine, put them in the drier. Fold them.
Is it a must? I still have clothes in my closet. So it isn’t a must for today!!I choose to do laundry today! I don’t have to do laundry today!! That’s a big difference.
Time: folding takes about 45 minutes
It’s not that hard to do laundry. Isn’t it? I often struggled with it. But now I know the purpose behind my action. And I know in that moment I choose to do it. It makes something simple like doing laundry so more meaningful and easier!
What about you?
I did it with all my stuff for the day.
Let me know your examples in the comments below. I’m sure we all can learn from each other as I could learn from Tony Robbins.
