On Monday, I felt busy the whole day; but when I looked back, I didn’t seem to get anything done.
Ever felt that way?
The point is I was busy; but was I being effective?
That evening I made a new commitment.
Each day, for the rest of the week, I was going to get a minimum of two things over the line.
I love this expression ‘over the line’ as it makes me visualise the finish line.
Completed. Finished. Done.
I even set up an accountability buddy who would push me. Thanks Vanessa.
I also reflected. Why did I let this happen?
A few minutes of thinking made me realise.
Once again, I was too busy being the teacher and not spending enough time being the student.
I already have the perfect method to ensure you finish each day with at least a few items over the line.
I’d even coached it at the weekend.
But I hadn’t done it.
The $100,000 Idea is one of my most effective Time Management and Productivity Tools. See page 41 of How To Save An Hour Every Day.
I know this. I literally wrote the book on it.
So why had I stopped doing it?
Because I’m human – and humans are terribly (wonderfully?) inconsistent.
Today, one of my 5 most important things is to write this message.
