What is the Get Shit Done Contest?

Most people have something holding them back, something that if done would have a profound change in their life. A lot of times these things are not difficult but we are afraid to do them because:

  • We don't know if we can
  • We are not sure how it will turn out
  • It is too hard
  • We are too busy

Uncertainty breeds procrastination

If we are unsure of something, we tend to push it aside. Almost nothing meaningful has been accomplished without dealing with uncertainty and doubt.

I want you to do something that will change your life

It doesn't even have to be big, many times our biggest roadblocks in life can be solved with a day or less of hard work or focus.

This isn't your typical contest, I am not asking you to do something for me, I am asking you to do something for YOU! You are worth it right?

What do you have to do?

Find something in your life you have put off but can have a big impact on your life and do it. Not a routine task, something you have struggled to start and have put off because it is stressful, hard, you don't understand how, or you are nervous about and Get that shit done.

It doesn't have to take a long time, but it has to be something that is holding back your success or well being.

You cannot submit something that you "plan" to do in the future, or have already done in the past.

How to submit an entry

Create a new post titled @themarkymark's Get Shit Done Content Entry and describe your task, your progress, and if possible before and after pictures. Explain how the issue impacts your life, any attempts you have tried in the past, how you accomplished it this time, and how do you feel now that it is done.

You must use the tag #getshitdone to be considered.

This contest came too late xD Already made my life-changing decision some weeks ago... I was studying to become a veterinary ( 6 years and only had progress in the last 2 years), changing degree now to computer science, to program and code, in a blockchain or not! This is probably the biggest decision one can do, it will change my whole life... I'm still scared of the decision, but I've been thinking about this for 3 years now! Even before I came to cryptos! It came to a point where I said! "NO MORE", going to restarts from scratch in 6 months more or less, I'm 24 almost 25 now, I'll finish it by 30... but screw it, better late than never!

Oh and i decided to come back to Steem xD I hadn't posted in 6 months, came back today...

A few motivational phrases for people that are afraid to go ahead and change their life: "If you don't move forward you are moving backward!" "If you are afraid of doing something it's probably because it's worth it!"

one of my faves is 'i cant do it... YET!'

At the beginning of this year, I decided I would spend more time learning python. I started working on a simple discord bot that would message posts upvoted by Archdruid Gaming. The bot uses beem. After some trial and error, I managed to set up the bot and eventually it started working. However, then it stopped. It stops after running for a few hours. It seems python doesn't play well with the discord event loop. Then I kinda gave up and stopped looking for a solution. If I figure out how to get it to work and run 24/7, I might be able to continue learning.

not sure if this helps ( didnt actually read it, just searched )

Great initiative and contest! I look forward to participating.

Love this challenge! Just the motivation I needed today! Here's my post https://steemit.com/getshitdonecontest/@thehippierays/themarkymark-s-get-shit-done-content-entry now time to #getshitdone

I found the book "Getting Things Done" by David Allen very helpful.. When looking to complete a task, always ask yourself, "What is the NEXT STEP?"

Great contest idea! #getshitdone

Thanks, @themarkymark!!!

Ugh! Fine!

Count me in. This is just the motivation I need right now (to do the things I should really do anyway!)

Yeah! That's a fantastic initiative. Getting shit done can be very rewarding in any case - but having the opportunity to win some Steem on top is surely extra motivating.

Thanks for the inspiration @themarkymark :-)

@enjar, maybe this is the motivation we need?

·

Indeed, heck I love the idea of more people using the #getshitdone tag as well. Not enough people doing on this platform.

Well let me get shit done before and create my submission post

·

And I got it done in only 15 mins - https://steemit.com/getshitdone/@chekohler/themarkymark-s-get-shit-done-content-entry

can I be stopped? No I doubt it!

I'm participating, just need to upload my entry video and discribe it.

Yeah this always happens with me.In life I have been so busy doing a fixed schedule of things that I always have to compromise on the me time. The time I need to develop myself may be read a book or go out for an early morning run.
Hopefully this will act as motivation and next 7 days I will be fully charged.👍✌️

Excellent stuff! I'm on it and ideas are running through my head right now which I'll be getting down into a post for my entry. This totally fits in to what this new year has bought about for me. Thanks for the initiative to #getthingsdone !

I just came up with the perfect idea! Although the end result does fall under 'plan to do in the future' the first big step can be accomplished right now.

Everything else about this initial task seems to fulfill the contest requirements. I can represent a solid commitment and show screenshots of what has been set in motion.

I have put this damn thing off for about eight years and suddenly it just hit me. It feels like the only #getshitdone type of accomplishment that makes sense right now..and will eventually ensure future wellbeing and success.

The result will not be instant...it will take months of hard work. I would just be writing about the first step. For the purposes of this contest...I am not sure it will be a good fit. But I have been inspired to go ahead with it anyway! :)

The procrastination doesn't exist, guys! I know what I am saying - I'm very experienced procrastinator (for an about 15 years). Now about one year I work without a problems.

And... what I want to say? That there is no procrastination - there are only bad habits which makes that we are not working. Difficult to change... but possible.

Estoy participando!

Hola amigos! Esta es Mi participación

El tema de este concurso me parece muy altruista y muy lindo. Espero que mucha más usuarios se unan.

Ok I'm in. My "get shit done " task is quitting smoking. Will make a post soon. Thanks for the awesome contest and the push to stop procrastinating.

Edit - here is my entry post, disguised as a humble Actifit post - https://partiko.app/@jk6276/actifit-jk6276-20190205t121202844z

Just wanted to withdraw my entry as I didn't get shit done. 🙄.

Posted using Partiko Android

I feel I am doing things all the time but I have to identify the big blockyblock now. Not easy identifying it in the first place. Alright. I'm in.

Awesome. Definitely count me in. I am happy to share this topic of yours. Thanks @markymark

This is awesome @markymark! I'm still voting you for witness and I will try to enter soon. For now upped and resteemed for more views and entries!😊👍

I am intending to participate and here is my post. I've been wanting to start a blog again for a while now and this has been a great motivation to get it started. While it's not 100% what I want it's a means to get me where I want to be in the future.

Hopefully no one just took pictures of them taking a poop in the toilet then flushes. Literally get shit done.

Been a fun week of getting shit done a little each day.

I am participating in your intriguing contest, and here is my entry:
https://steemit.com/getshitdone/@blueeyes8960/themarkymark-s-get-shit-done-contest-entry

Im getting my fucking Abitur (very high grade in germany) done..
And that's also why I sadly have no time to write an entry for this contest.. :/

Well, finally ending this oppressing school is price enough. I guess.

Good luck everyone else :)
