One mentality that is handy to have if you'd like to become more productive is the finish mentality. Actually, it's finish, finish, finish mentality but we can abbreviate it as FFFM for convenience. FFFM basically means that whenever you're doing a task, your first and foremost agenda should be to finish it. Quality comes second. It doesn't matter how you get it done, where you get it done, or what you have to do to get it done - just finish it. Finish the task.
Soon you'll notice you've developed an addiction to finishing.
When I say addiction, I mean positive addiction - one that makes you feel good without that crash of bad feeling afterwards. Finishing will increase your self-respect. It will make you feel like you can do things you never knew you were capable of. It will make you want to do it again as soon as possible. And then again. And again.
After a while you'll realize you've got more done than ever before in your life. And not only that - you'll also notice that the level of quality in the tasks you've finished has risen, steadily or exponentially, from the early tasks towards the recently finished tasks. You've improved. You've become more efficient. It's a spiral of development, shooting towards the sky, where there is no limit.
Don't have enough tasks to exercise FFFM on? No worries! You can always invent new tasks. What have you always wanted to do, but felt like it was too much or too difficult or too time-consuming? Start with those. Then you can broaden your repertoire to new and exciting things that you keep coming up with once you get the innovative wheel rolling in your head.
So finish! Get things done! Become addicted to positive and developing things! You'll even enjoy the holidays more when you know you've achieved beyond expectations. Constantly finishing tasks, small and big, gets you excited about the new day, the new year, the new decade.
