3 Ways to Accomplish a Challenging Activity

Uncategorized Nov 25, 2017

You may have just started the J.O.Y. Journal or you have been busy checking off activities, but now you have ran into an issue.  Suddenly you find a daily challenge that is not so easy to complete.  No matter what stage of the journal you are in, here are some tips to help you get through a challenging activity.

  • Put it aside – You might be thinking this is the last piece of advice you want to hear. Sometimes when we focus on something so intently we get tunnel vision and can’t see new ideas. Putting the challenging activity aside for a couple of hours or a few days can help us refresh and refocus to find a new way at viewing a hard situation.
  • Breakdown into Smaller Pieces – Is this one with multiple questions? Answer them one at a time instead of all at once. Does the activity require you to work with others? Contact those you wish to work with and make advance appointments so you have time to prepare and not meet several people at once. Breaking a challenge down into smaller task allows you to focus on one piece at a time. Once you add these pieces together you will be amazed at how easy it was to complete.
  • Make Time to Accomplish the Daily Activity – Sometimes things are a challenge because we feel as though we have no time to complete it fully, so we put it off. And then we put it off again. And again. Until finally it looms over us and seems too hard to complete. Instead of putting it off, create a timeline with deadlines for completing the activity. Setting time aside ahead of time allows us to focus on the task at hand with full attention than trying to complete the challenge on a whim.

Following some or all of these tips can help you quickly accomplish a hard activity in an easy fashion.
