One of the biggest mistakes that we make when we have a lot of work to get done is that we think we can do it all in one day… in the future. The problem with this is that when that day comes, we suddenly no longer feel like doing all the work and then it feels overwhelming and impossible to do.
Try to be nice and considerate to your future self and instead of planning all of your work on the same day, spread it out so that you do a little each day. It’s much easier to get started on 15 minutes of work than it is to get started on 2 hours of work.
Planning is key. If on one of those days, you happen to feel very productive and you want to get the rest of your work done, then do it! That will give you the extra added benefit of having more free time in the coming days that you hadn’t planned for.
