Have you ever felt stagnant in your life and you are thinking why you are not where you want to be? In this world we live in, everything is being done faster and faster. We all have our own goals and we never stop achieving those goals so we can live the life we wanted. We need sense of urgency.
When you develop a sense of urgency, you have to level up. If others can do it so can you. You have to ask yourself, how bad do you really want this? You have the choice to take action or continue making excuses.
Would you want to continue living an average life or you want to see some next-level change?
The most successful people have far from perfect lives. They have to fight their own battles. They have flaws, weird habits but despite the hurdles, they might encounter they are still doing their very best to cross off the goals they have set.
These people have a no excuse attitude and have rid themselves of complacency to rekindle that fire and chase their dreams. Most of them have this mantra by Les Brown saying, “you must take action that will move you towards your goal. Develop a sense of urgency in your life.”
This is a reminder that applies to both small and big goals. A sense of urgency fuels you to do the things you love and do it now. If you have been putting off personal projects because you are too consumed of the responsibilities and so tired to work on it or you are busy making excuses and busy in front of the TV, or somehow neglected your relationship with your family and friends, now is the time to stop and start the fire inside you and get it burning again.
But First, What is Sense of Urgency?
Urgency doesn’t mean that you have to rush doing something to get what you want. It doesn’t mean chaos. Urgency means doing what needs to be done now. It means that you aren’t procrastinating or delaying things that can already be finished in a few minutes.
When you have your priorities set, you take the steps to achieve your goals and accomplish things based on your terms.
In today?s article, we will give you quick tips on how you can start living your life with a Sense of Urgency.
Create Your Master Plan
Take the time to think about your plans, goals, priorities. It is challenging to live with a sense of urgency without any structured plans. Depending on your preference, set some time (preferably once a year) for yourself to plan and set deadlines for anything you want to accomplish, the things you have on your wish list and things no one will force you to do but will hurt you, soul if you forget about it.
Remember to be realistic and write down the things that you are confident you can cross off. After creating your game plan for the year, organize your daily schedule, and make sure you have an hour or two reserved for things you love to do. Be consistent or you’ll lose the momentum if you skipped.
Find Balance In Things
Your daily routine should be a combination of your responsibilities and the things that spark your passion. Doing only what is expected of you, pressuring yourself into doing it perfectly, will result in you burning out and asking yourself what is the point of all this.
Learn to prioritize and finish the things you have to do and worry about doing it perfectly later.
Have you had a moment and ask yourself; how many activities have you crossed off your bucket list? Everyone has hopes and dreams. You want to learn a new skill, travel the world, compose a song, write a book, etc. We have these things in mind but what we miss is to do them.
Whatever is important to you, whatever you feel passionate about doing in this life, don?t take time for granted.
Start by completing simple tasks that will help you develop new habits that will result in great results. You can start making your bed each morning, doing dishes after meals, look after yourself, healthwise, and more. These are very basic but produces a great ripple effect.
Be vocal about what you want to accomplish. Believe that you have what it takes for you to succeed. We hope that through these simple tips, it will inspire you to take action. Now is the time for you to find the passion and develop a sense of urgency in achieving that dream. Keep going and create the life you deserve.
