What’s the Worst That Could Happen?

Right now, this moment, you have an uncomfortable task on your to do list. It’s a phone call you don’t want to make, or an unpleasant task that needs to be completed. Stop right now and ask yourself these two questions:

1)    What is the worst possible outcome of doing this right now?

2)    How will I feel when this is behind me?

The chances are that the “worst possible outcome” is really not that bad. No one is going to take a swing at you. You’re not going to endure undo torment. The worst case is typically not that bad.

When it comes to question two, this should be a great motivator. Think of how great you’ll feel to knock that task out right away. Good news: you’re only a couple of minutes away from actually feeling that.

Do it! Right now! This minute! Tackle the tough stuff first and see how much better you feel.
