My father is always calling me the Gonna Girl. This is because whenever I get asked whether I can do something I, for some reason, answer with "I'm gonna". This has become a very big slogan of mine, and I can so relate it back to writing and goal making.
Isn't there so many goals or even promises that you answer with "I'm gonna get around to it", "I'm gonna do it" or "not right now but I'm gonna". Even if it's just to get someone off your back that you answer with "I'm gonna".
This disease is called gonna-itis. Beware it is contagious, but there is a very simple cure. To be rid of the gonna-itis all you have to do is:
- Prioritise your goals - this will help you decide which "gonna" goals you have to do first.
- Learn to say no - I know it's difficult sometimes, but maybe these "gonna" goals all come out because you take on too many and are scared to disappoint someone so you say you're gonna do it.
- Bribe yourself - no, that's not bad. Give yourself a little treat if you complete the goal that you say you're "gonna" do.
- Get off your butt and DO IT.
Do you suffer from gonna-itis? What are some things that you say you're gonna do but really never get around to doing them? How do you get over your gonna-itis?
