Sometimes you just have to do what you need to do. You might not like it. It might be really tough. But you need to do what you need to do.
As long as the reasons are right for you, then go through the hardships to achieve it.
Do what you need to do, not what you want to do.
That simplistic statement has a lot of significance. How often do we face that need to do vs. want to do crossroads at work, and we choose the latter?
Sure, we can make excuses for our choices, but many times when we mess up or let others down it’s because we’re doing what we want to do, not what we need to do.
When we do what needs to be done:
- We put others’ needs ahead of our own.
- We do what’s right, even when we don’t feel like it.
- We’re disciplined.
- We’re more focused and productive.
- We create good habits.
- We perform more consistently.
Getting the motivation to get up and do something that you know needs to be taken care of is always easier said than done.
Summing-up: If you do what you need to do when you need to do it, then the day will come when you can do what you want to do when you want to do it.
