Being Imminent

I came across this quote said by Elon Musk which said-” If you give yourself 30 days to clean your home, it will take you 30 days. But if you give yourself 3 hours, it will take 3 hours. The same applies to your goals, ambitions, and potential.”

It is important to set a definite goal for your tasks to keep yourself on track.

Making things imminent means assigning them a deadline with a clear structure and getting them done efficiently.

When you assign a clear boundary to your task, you are more likely to get them done on time. Otherwise, one might slip into either perfectionism or procrastination.

The perfect time is a myth. You can finish it today.

Making your tasks as definite as possible is the goal here. Tasks with no deadlines or structure keep never get ticked off and you feel you are not doing enough.

Instead of deciding to study for your next exam, try to decide the exact topic and write the exact page/ link where you will find it. Assign a time limit to it and you’ll easily get it done!
