Episode Transcript (Edited)…
Hi and welcome to today’s episode of the Profit Productivity Podcast as your host, Michael Tipper. Who else would it be?
So what happens when the day just doesn’t go to plan? It gets written off completely and things just do not go the way you want them to.
Well, that’s the subject of today’s brief episode because I woke up this morning feeling not very good at all and it knocked me for six. I had to stay in bed for the best part of certainly morning and into the early afternoon.
And then when I got up, it still didn’t feel too good.
I managed to drag myself into the shower, get dressed, and since then I’ve been wandering around aimlessly trying to do things.
Nothing has gone according to plan because everything’s been thrown off because of not feeling very well.
And I’ve tried to force my way through it. I’ve tried to grit my teeth and get on with it, but just things haven’t clicked and I’ve not made any progress. The quality of any work I’ve tried to do has just not been any good.
So what do I do when things happen like this?
Now there are a number of options.
I think sort of grinding it out and pushing through is one way and I think the diehards would probably say that’s the way to go.
The other way is just walking away completely and writing it off.
I think sometimes there are days when you’ve just got to grind it out. And I’ve had those days when I’ve just had to do it, or I forced myself to do it.
But I think there are also days when you just got to chalk it off as something that didn’t happen that day. Write it off and just start again tomorrow.
I think that’s I’m going to have to do with today.
Ideally, I’d be at my best, at my most productive every single minute of every single day, but I know that’s not possible.
Then perhaps I’d like to be at my actual best for the time when I’m at my best during the day and do that every single day. But today that’s not been possible and I’ve written off the best part of my day.
I’ve Not felt good about moving forward and have not felt physically right.
And so I am going to have to just acknowledge this. Let me just make a decision based on the facts rather than the emotion and get rid of any guilt.
Today’s not been a good day. I’ve not made progress.
Draw a line under it. Start again tomorrow and then crack on then.
And that’s what I’m going to have to do.
So that’s today’s episode.
