It’s easy to get distracted. Shiny objects abound.
As does internet surfing, the need for a sandwich, political noise, a reheated cup of coffee, watching a youtube video, oh look… a squirrel!
We’ve all heard the classic research that says, Focus on 3-4 things and you will accomplish them. Tackle more than 4 and you’re likely to accomplish none.
We also know that chunking our days into 45 minute sessions, then taking well-deserved (as in earned) breaks leads to higher productivity.
So here’s how you can make your 2018 brilliant & profitable:
- Choose 3-4 BIG goals this year. Yep – that’s it. Prioritize! (Remember – balance is a crock.)
- Pursue your 3-4 BIG goals relentlessly like a teenage-girl without a date ten days before Prom.
- Chunk your days into focused sessions. Like a dog pulverizing a bone.
- Say no to tasks & time sucks that do not drive these 3-4 prioritized goals forward. Practice lip-pursing “oh, no” in the mirror if you must.
- Assess & celebrate your progress every month. Mini-wins lead to mighty ones. And it’s a great excuse to shake your cute booty.
- Declare 2018 a kick-ass year in December. I knowz I’m gonna be! Get focused and you’ll declare it too!
