Get Up and Take Action - Tips on How You Can Become a Doer

Some people are born doers. Others think about doing something but, at the end of the day, never actually get anything done.

So, how can you go from being a "thinker" to being a "doer"?

First, you've got to adopt the right mindset. People who jump up and take action tend to be very well-organized. They have an ability to move from one task to the other without much effort. So, if you always seem to be disorganized, drowning in a sea of papers, or unable to shift gears at a moment's notice, you've got to change your way of thinking. Once you get organized, you'll be one step closer to taking action!

If it seems like "doers" have more energy than you do, you're probably right. Instead of being blessed with more stamina, "doers" have an ability to feed on taking action. It gives them a rush of adrenaline and, thus, an energy boost!

The "thinkers", on the other hand, spend the entire day floundering. Then, when the day ends, nothing's been accomplished - but they feel exhausted! When they try to assess how much progress has been made (or, in their case, HASN'T been made), they get overwhelmed and feel even more exhausted. It's a dangerous cycle!

OK, so how do you get out of the cycle?

- Make a to-do list.

That way, you'll know about everything you need to get done. Even better, prioritize your list so you know where to start. Then, when you cross items off the list, you'll feel the satisfaction and get the adrenaline rush "doers" experience!

- Reward yourself.

When you scratch everything off your to-do list, give yourself a pat on the back. After all, this is a big victory! If you're honest with yourself - and reward yourself for working hard (no cheating!) - you'll look forward to these rewards. They'll give you an adrenaline rush that motivates you to keep aiming for them!

- Tap into the power of visualization.

If you've got a particularly important or challenging task to tackle, close your eyes and visualize yourself doing it. By seeing yourself accomplish it, you'll have the energy you need to go out and really do it!

(The biggest key to visualization is the details. So, when you visualize yourself doing something, focus on every "little thing" there is - from start to finish!)

- Build on your own adrenaline.

Even a small accomplishment will give you an adrenaline rush. So, take that energy and use it to move onto the next task. Think of it like training for a marathon - every mile you run makes you more prepared to take on the big race. If you build on these waves of adrenaline, you'll have the energy you need to go out and take action!

- Focus on solutions.

A big difference between "doers" and "thinkers" is their approach to problems. "Doers" tend to view the world with a "can do" attitude - meaning they believe every problem has a solution. "Thinkers" tend to have a "can't do" attitude -meaning there are some problems that just can't be overcome.

No matter what challenges you're facing, clear your mind and concentrate. It may take awhile, but a solution WILL come to you!

- Seek out other "doers".

Most of the happy people out there are the action-takers. The more time you spend with them, the happier you'll be. Associating with them will help to change your mindset, and eventually, the way you act!
