Boost Your Success with 3 Important Things

Three Important Things

When you’re trying to overcome low motivation and difficult circumstances, it’s easy to get bogged down in the details. You have list and lists of tasks to do, but you don’t have the motivation to do any of them. Each day you don’t conquer your list, you can lose a little more hope that you ever will.

But there is a way to break free and boost yourself into daily successes. It all comes down to simplifying your efforts. Instead of starting each day by looking at the hundreds of things you should be doing, end each day by deciding what you need to accomplish tomorrow. Choose the three most important things you need to accomplish the next day. That list of three things becomes your new, complete to-do list.

The next day, sit down and accomplish those three things. Don’t worry about anything else—don’t let anyone convince you any other task is necessary to your success. If you finish those three things, consider yourself done for the day. You’re successful. You’ve accomplished three very important things.

You may wonder how you can be truly successful when you only do three things a day. The truth is, when you’re lacking motivation and struggling to tackle any task at all, the likelihood that you’ll accomplish important things is low. More likely you’ll chip away at a few minor tasks and accomplish a few things, but nothing that would constitute success.

After you’ve accomplished three important things, anything else you accomplish is gravy. You can also have a few “nice to do” things on your list each day, but don’t let them worry you and don’t plan on getting them done. If you do, you have an added bonus, but if you don’t, you’ve still accomplished three important things.

After you do this for a few days in a row, you’ll have had an entirely successful week. From there, a successful month. Successes tend to motivate you into more success. Once you have a steady stream of success, success will have become a habit.

A habit of success is better than a day in which you accomplish even the most monumental to-do list. Habits are steady, consistent things that can build your productivity and success over the long haul.
