Do you have trouble starting something?
A great way to encourage action in yourself is to start writing your to-do list differently.
Don’t write yourself “reminders” that you have to sort through to understand.
You will find yourself starting projects and tasks faster, if you write your to-do list in active language
instead of passive language.
Using a verb will help to compel you to action.
The action is so clear it feels more like a command than a suggestion.
So keep in mind that your to-do list isn't a reminders list, but an action list!
PS. If the action word isn’t compelling enough, change it to a stronger verb
