You’ve got a new bright idea, so you jump on it like Gru jumped on his “freeze ray.”
And you don’t mess around, either! When you’ve got an idea, you’re all in… fully enthralled, fully engaged, fully committed.
UNTIL… A NEW LIGHT BULB GOES OFF.
Now you’re fully enthralled, fully engaged and fully committed to your new idea…
UNTIL… AN EVEN BRIGHTER LIGHT BULB GOES OFF.
And thus, the cycle continues… Leaving a hallway of light bulbs that could rival Time Square – but none of which ever become fully illuminated or become your ‘big picture’ vision.
In today’s episode, we’re talking about how to organize all those light bulbs and build habits that actually get you getting stuff done. Ultimately, it comes down to discipline. It’s not about ignoring the new light bulbs… It’s about capturing the vision of the new light bulb (listen for strategy #2), and then getting back to and completing your current project.
Love the BACKDROP? We do, too! It’s Spangled, from the fabulous Drop it Modern!

Oh – HI! oh. 🙂 Love the visualization strategy in step 7 and the “how does it feel” visual. I had a productive day not long ago and the best feeling was when I was wiping clean the dry erase board to-do list. WOO HOO!! Thanks Leah for the fun video today!
Ahh! Meghan! YOU are so very welcome… But just wait. I’ve got a part 2 for you as well! Practice these 7 strategies this week and than (hopefully by) next week we will get that list organized and executable! I’m so excited! 😀
ugh….I needed to hear this today! I have 5 “frogs” on this list that NEED to get done! Thanks Leah!
You can do it Tiffany! Slurp em’ up and swallow um’ down! 🙂
I am the queen of getting distracted and coming up with a million projects before completing one. Thanks for the push and strategy to get stuff done
You’re so welcome Jen! Now I want to know what you’ve gotten done? Accountability baby. I know you can tackle those projects and I know how good it’s going to feel when you do!
