Getting Things Done With a Method Called DIA

“Do-it-anyway” I call it. It’s more of a way to think stuff rather than method. Being efficient often boils down to DIA.

There are lots of people who read more stuff about “how to get things done” or “how to motivate yourself”. They get more and more books, listen to more and more tapes – yet they won’t get more things done. Sometimes it might end up being just the opposite: the books and tapes might eat too much of their precious time.

Don’t get me wrong. I believe there are some good tactics, and there are ways that help to get motivated – but I don’t think people should get stuck with “how to get motivated to do something”. At that point “getting motivated” might not be the problem, it might be the “something” that you need to change.

Or use DIA.

Do it anyway.

If you don’t feel like doing some annoying task… then do it anyway – even if you don’t feel like doing it. If you know that you need to get something done, then why simply not do it?

All the books or tapes or seminars in the world won’t make that “something” any easier, so why not save some time & money and stop reading too many books and simply do the task.

That’s DIA. Do it anyway – even when you don’t feel doing it.
