Stop right now! What are you working on? Is that actually important? Is it helping you progress your goals? Or are you just making busy time? Answering emails, shifting bundles of paper around?
We are all living in an increasingly busy world. Unfortunately, time is a finite resource. There are only 24 hours in each day and there are only so many things that you can get done in those 24 hours.
Stop wasting your time and pick something important to YOU to work on instead!
It requires a small change to your approach: Your job is NOT to get everything done. Getting everything done is impossible and you will waste your life trying. Instead, at every point in your life, aim to do the one MOST IMPORTANT THING right now.
Imagine leaving at the end of the day feeling that you’ve accomplished something. And looking back over your week with a sense of achievement. And as you continue working in this way, you will notice that your life takes on new meaning as you start to accomplish the goals that really matter to you.
Sounds good, right? We’ve put together a quick guide to making this happen, together with an actionable 12-page workbook (free no-signup download at the end of this post). Read on and start putting your life back on track!
The whole thing breaks down like this:
- Get organised – use a single to-do list to capture all your tasks.
- Use a review session at the end of each day to celebrate your successes and pick the most important things to work on the next day.
- Deal with interruptions as quickly as possible.
- Rinse and repeat for a happier, more fulfilled life!
