Have you ever felt that there’s just not enough time in the day? 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. I’m sure you all can relate to this and that is how I was feeling in my first year of starting my practice; so much to do and so little time! As part of Welcome to the “New You”! program I am rolling out in 2019, I’m changing the way I work.
When you’re supremely clear about where you’re going and what you want to do, there’s no time lost. Decisions are easy to make, actions are easy to take, and you can get a lot accomplished in a short period of time.
Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to eliminate the time-management nightmare.
1. Plan your work.
Take a few moments to determine 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.
2. Gather your resources.
Get your tools in order so you don’t have to stop once you begin because you are missing something important. What do you need to do this job right? Get it.
3. Set a time and work your plan.
Give yourself a timeline. How long will you work on your project? Then follow your outline step-by-step and focus only on the task at hand. Do not check email, answer the phone, or have a conversation with a friend. If you get lost or distracted, come back to your outline and see what’s next.
Before long, you will have a finished your project, and have plenty of time to relax or do something else … like dream about what you are going to do next ….
It’s 2019 … Welcome to the “New You”!
Your Passion … Your Goals … YOUR LIFE!®
