A great way to get things done is to already be getting things done. To be highly productive, establish and maintain some productive momentum.
Momentum is a powerful thing. A body at rest has a strong tendency to stay at rest, and a body in motion has the same strong tendency to continue in motion.
Get yourself in motion, and you're much more likely to stay in motion. Get started on something, and you're well on your way to doing everything that must be done.
If you're having trouble getting motivated to do a particular task, then start working on something else. The important thing is to get yourself going, to get the productive and creative juices flowing.
When you feel the satisfaction of making a difference in one area, you're much more eager to make a positive difference in another area. Just get started on something, establish a strong momentum, and let that momentum pull you forward.
Life gets better the more you put some good, solid effort into it. Go ahead, make that initial effort, build some productive momentum, and soon you'll have a whole lot of valuable work done.
