How to Create More Urgency In Your Life
Urgency can sometimes be associated with panic or rushing - but it can also be a fantastic tool for progress. When harnessed correctly, urgency is what will change the plans of tomorrow into the action of today.
Of course, you can only use urgency properly when you invite it into your life consciously. Here are a few ways that you can create more urgency in your life - and put it to work.
Set focused goals
Setting goals is a great way of pushing yourself towards your achievements - but they need to be focused. Do your goals often feel unattainably far away? That’s a sign that they might be too vague.
Create a sense of urgency in your life and build that momentum by attaching timeframes to your goals. Do you want to start a business? Set a goal of writing a business plan within six months. Do you want to find more time for yourself? Make a game plan covering the next four weeks.
Attaching timeframes doesn’t just create more focused goals, it also makes it easier to check in and see how much progress you’ve made!
Seek out inspiration
Inspiration can feel like something you need to let come to you - but it doesn’t need to. You can actually go out and seek inspiration to get those creative, hardworking juices flowing.
Think of what makes you feel inspired: perhaps it’s art, talking through ideas with other people, or being outside in the fresh air. Whatever it is, work it into your weekly or even daily routine. By orchestrating those periods of inspiration, you don’t need to wait for energy to hit you - you can go out and seek it for yourself!
Build habits that work for you
If we don’t learn good habits, it gets easier for things we care about to fall by the wayside. By pushing ourselves into forming strong habits, we make it easier to succeed in our goals.
What’s more, not all good habits are created equal. Some are more powerful than others. Identify and reward the ones that strengthen your confidence, help you get what you want, and result in a satisfying conclusion. You’ll recognize them because they will slowly become the habits you value most in your everyday routine.
