Let’s say you’ve been putting off organizing your closet. You always find more
important tasks to do and it’s never enough time to clean it and put
everything in place.
Just sit down, take a piece of paper and begin writing: “It’s Saturday,
3:45pm. I’m sitting in the kitchen, drinking coffee. I want to organize my
closet. It will only take me about 1 hour and I will feel energetic and satisfied
that I finally got it done. My closet will be clean, everything will be sorted and
Just as you’re writing it you feel the desire to get up and do it. Because you
want your closet organized, you want to feel satisfied and you’ve already
imagined yourself doing it.
Remember, all you have to do is to answer three questions. Where you are,
what do you want to do, and how will you feel while doing it. It’s a very
simple technique but it works like a magic!
