Become the boss of busy
Following on from guest blogger and productivity guru Alison Hill's first tip, here is tip #2 (if you missed #1, click here to have a read).
Tip #2: Decide on the ONE THING
Now you’ve created some space by stopping some stuff that is holding you back, it’s time to narrow focus. Think like there’s a pair of Manolo Blahnik’s for sale at 75% off. You’ve got a 15 minute lunch break to get to the shops, buy the shoes and get back and then brag to friends about your amazing ninja-like shopping skills.
Focus. You’ve done it before. You can do it again.
If you really want to get your life together, then decisions need to be made. We’ve already covered the necessity of stopping things first, but our next step is to undertake a daily practice; one’s that will make you produce as regularly as a glass of psyllium husk, but won’t taste nearly as foul. #yepiwentthere
Every morning you need to look at what you’ve got to get done today and decide on the ONE THING, regardless of anything else happening in your day, that will make the day feel like you’ve made progress.
So quite literally I want you to ask yourself this;
‘If I were to do nothing else today – not a thing – what would be the one thing I could sit back and still say that was success to have done that?’
Whatever that thing is; get it done today.
Go do it (then you can come back and check out a bit more around this wicked website).
