I find that I can get more done when I don't concentrate so much on the task. I just tell myself how long the task right in front of me is going to take. One minute? Five minutes? 30 seconds? You know what, you may not feel like you are completely brave, or motivated, or disciplined, but you CAN act like you're brave for 20 seconds, you CAN act like you're motivated for 30 seconds, you CAN act like you're disciplined for one minute. I didn't say you had to BE it. All you have to do is ACT like it. Fake it till you make it. One minute here. One minute there. What does a minute mean to you? Just another 60 seconds? Or an opportunity to up-level your life?
