One Great Thing
Are You Doing One Great Thing Every Day to Move Yourself Forward?
Time management is about getting at least one important thing done every day, so commit to making this happen. too often, your day can get cluttered when you lose the discipline of corporate priorities and planning. One can easily get blinded by household distractions or the easy-to-do work that can generate activity, but seldom results. Like you used to do in the office, qualify your activities and push the envelope to ensure it’s the right stuff for you to be focusing on. Always keep an up-to-date list of pending activities sorted by priority so you can make quick and easy decisions of what to do next. Your commitment to doing at least one great thing every day can really boost your productivity and give you laser focus to ensure you complete your tasks brilliantly. Make sure you highlight your day’s accomplishments so you celebrate the progress you are making. Continually assess and revisit activities because certain tasks—like networking at the same event or scanning the same job board—will lose value over time. remember this is your future you’re betting on so you are on the hook to make every day great! If a planned activity doesn’t deliver results or your lack of discipline lets you down, find forgiveness quickly and then reschedule any missed tasks for the very next day.
