This week I have been sharing a few of the specific things that have helped me get out of a slump!
SLAY YOUR DRAGONS FIRST THING

When you’re in a slump, even the smallest tasks can feel like the landscape in the Dr. Seuss illustration above…heading nowhere, a difficult slog over mountains and valleys…tough. That’s why making a conscious effort to “slay your dragons first thing” is so important. When you accomplish one monster task first thing in the morning, you set yourself up for success. You give yourself a little confidence boost. And since it’s first thing in the morning, there’s not time for worry or anxiety to build and paralyze. Yesterday I had to get my car inspected and I was dreading it. So I went first thing in the morning, and you know what? I had a great time, laughed with the mechanic, and felt empowered for the rest of the day, rather than brooding over an item on my to-do list. It’s like a productivity domino effect 🙂 I love this image above…I think from here on out I’m going to call it a “Ta-Da!” list 🙂
You can do it, friends!
