Remember Nike’s famous tagline: JUST DO IT
These three words, JUST DO IT, inspire many to follow through and finally stop procrastinating.
But the rest of us may need another step to get from JUST DO IT to I’VE DONE IT.

No matter what you’ve been putting off, if you actually schedule it on your calendar, your likelihood of getting it done will increase exponentially.
Have you noticed that if you’ve got tickets to a concert you nearly always make it to the show? When we think of other commitments like concert tickets, and put them on our calendars, we are more likely to make them happen.
