If You Want To Accomplish Your Goals, You Have Got To Put Down Your Ducky

Bath ducks to put down if you want to accomplish your goals.

Try to do two things at the same time and neither will turn out perfect. If you want to accomplish your goals, you have to focus and tame your mind to not jump all over the place. So put your duckie down. Give it a nice spot, but table it.

Have you ever watched this Sesame Street Clip? If Ernie really wants to play the saxophone, like with no squeaking duck sounds, he is going to have to put down his duckie.

So, if you’re in for a fun song, go watch the clip. and then set aside everything else that could distract you and get your shizzle done.

Before You Go

But before you go, please let me know…. What are your secrets to get your mind to simply obey? To not jump all over the place when you have a to do list that freaks you out just by thinking about it? What do you do to make sure you accomplish your goals?

  1. This made me laugh and really lifted my mood today. It brought it home to me that multi tasking is not productive. Ill be singing this all day long as I write down all the steps to get my goals done. The next thing is to read them every day and take action on one thing on that day. It makes me feel great and motivates me to keep going.

    1. Glad I made you smile, Charmaine. I try to keep multitasking to an absolute minimum too. I can cook a few meals at the same time, or I can do a phone call while I cook or do laundry but that is about it. My biggest challenge is starting my day purposefully. Giving myself a few minutes only to check mail and social media, write down the things I really need to accomplish for the day and get going. If I do not get started the right way, I usually get carried away with something unnecessary and not urgent. And it is so hard to become aware and press restart.
