To get stuff done, you need to get your hands dirty and actually do it. But to know what you're about to do is better to think before that.
It's rather easy to get excited about something new. Be it a new project, hobby or such it's (in most of the cases) fun to start something new. Carrying that "passioned" hype along the way may be a little harder task to manage. So how could you preserve this after a week, month or maybe a year?
"By visualizing your plan, writing it down and getting a more clear picture of your going, you are actually doing it already."
I call one form of "meditating" when I sit on the couch with my notebook and start writing/sketching stuff which I want to do, or I'm about to get doing. When thinking of the process of "actually doing it" gives a better picture of the task and prepares you to do it more efficiently. At the same time, you can knot down your goals for the task, maybe even drop in a couple of dates when the X should be done.
I've also heard that even professional athletes think of their "success" when on the starting line, to help them focus on the goal. By visualizing your plan, writing it down and getting a more clear picture of your going, you are actually doing it already.
Take a notebook right now and start writing/drawing your ideas, I promise it will be the most effective 10-15 minutes you'll have today!
