There are two obstacles that are likely preventing you from being a massive action-taker right now to improve your day:
A lack of clarity,
a lack of motivation.
Here’s why clarity and motivation matter:
A confused mind always says no! If what you need to do each day isn’t clear and and understandable to you, your brain is going to create resistance to taking action (you experience a similar restrictive reaction when you’re blindfolded and asked to move – it’s a form of what is often called ‘fear of the unknown‘).
Without clear reasons WHY you need to take action, you often find yourself without the fuel and motivation for taking action!
Without clarity about what you need to do, and reasons for doing them, your mind easily wanders, and your heart lacks any kind of motivation for taking meaningful action. As a result, distractions and procrastination take over and your ability to produce significant results becomes a fraction of your potential.
The Action Machine is built completely around the timeboxing concept, so it works because it’s simple to understand and use, and it ties together the three key motivating elements that push your brain to take action (we talked about these earlier):
It turns your daily actions/tasks into doable mini-goals
It allows you to quickly and easily assign each mini-goal a specific timeframe or deadline (fuel for motivation)
It shows you the BIG picture of your day with a level of clarity that helps you believe you can get it all done
When these three elements are brought together in the dynamic, automated environment of The Action Machine, the synergy totally transforms the way you psychologically and emotionally look at all the things you have to do.
