Get Clear On Where You’re Going
Have you ever felt that there’s just not enough time in the day and as a result you feel overwhelmed and your “to-do list” keeps getting longer? Most often, when we run out of time for projects or pursuits, the reason is that we’ve spent a lot of time lost in ambiguity.
When you’re supremely clear about where you’re going and what you want to do, there’s no time lost. Your actions are clear & precise, and you can make an AMAZING amount of progress in just a short period of time.
Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to eliminate the time-management nightmare.
- Pleasure and plan your work.
Take a few moments to determine WHY you want to accomplish your task. For example if I have to clean the kitchen or house the real reason is that I derive pleasure in order and cleanliness. Where you’re going and how you plan to get there? You don’t have to know all the steps or details; just write down the basic outline as you can see it.
- Gather your resources.
Get your tools in order. Make sure you have food & water and anything else you need to get started. What do you need to do this job right? Get it all together BEFORE you start to minimize distractions and having to restart your task over and over.
- Work your plan with RADICAL FOCUS
Give yourself a deadline, then follow your outline step-by-step. If you get lost or distracted, come back to your outline and see what’s next.
Before long you will have a finished product or project, and plenty of time to relax or do something else…like stare out the window for 20 minutes.
