How to tackle your to do list: Tackle it Tuesday

Alright people, today is tackle it Tuesday! Tackle by definition means to make determined efforts to deal with. Do you have to do lists, bills to pay, errands to run, or goals you want to accomplish? What in the hell are you waiting for? You are promised how much time on this earth? Is time spent avoiding your responsibilities to others and to yourself really good use of your time?

Tackle it Tuesday is something I came up with because at times, we all need a reset. A time where we can sit down and re-establish what it is we are working towards, what it is we live and breathe for. There are of course the tasks we must complete everyday to continue to live up to our standards, but why not set the goal a few steps further. Why not tackle your biggest dreams and ideas?

Step outside of that damn comfort zone and do something that makes you excited to wake up in the morning. Set out a plan for yourself to not only go to the grocery store or to the gym but also to accomplish something even bigger, whether it be reading a book you bought a year ago that has been collecting dust on the shelf or starting your own business!

Tackling life is not easy. Tackling your goals and even daily to do lists is not easy. Nobody told you it would be. At the end of the day you have to decide how important it is to you to tackle whatever it is lying right in front of you.

There are several ways in which you can prioritize what it is you need to accomplish and what it is that is most important to you.

One suggestion I have is a to do list that you can physically write on and scratch out. I am a to do list kind of girl but I know that more often than not, if my list is in my phone, it isn’t going to get done as quickly.

This is a very useful planner I suggest if you have never tried this method!

Another suggestion is having a bullet journal or notebook such as this one,

or even something a little more subtle…

Bullet journaling is serious business y’all. (Yes, I am from Texas!) Once you start, you may just never stop. Being able to write down all of your thoughts and ideas into organized lists is one way some people realize they are capable of so much more than they ever thought.

My final suggestion is having someone who holds you accountable. Share with a friend or family member what it is that you are trying to do for yourself. Some people may have problems with procrastination of the small things while others are procrastinating the big life changing challenges such as starting a business they are truly passionate about. Stop holding yourself back!

I hope this have given you some ideas and motivation on how to approach goal setting and tackling some of those challenges we seem to stumble upon.

I greatly appreciate any comments or feedback you may have and please let me know helps you to get shit done and tackle those goals and to do lists!
