Ah, the power of getting things done… it feels so good, doesn’t it,?
Last week I shared how I created four months’ worth of content in one day, and the messages flooded in. I’m so glad that served you.
Now, let’s talk about the bigger issue when it comes to checking things off the never-ending to-do list…
Yes, I’m talking about your calendar and the ever-disappearing resource known as your time.
For example, according to your calendar, you have a full day reserved for creation. Yay!
And when you get to doing, everything takes five times as long as you thought it would. Before you know it, the day is over, and you’ve only finished one of the ten things on your list.
This constant drain day after day robs you of the energy to contribute and support the greater good.
Before you convince yourself you’re not good enough, or open up that box of cookies, know this – it happens to everyone. Yes, even me… before I got structured. Specifically with my calendar.
It’s not about Monday, do this, and Friday, do that.
It’s about building an awareness of your time for creativity, meetings, or business growth – AND being accountable to yourself.
Here’s the big one for me – at the end of the day, if it’s not on my calendar, it’s not in my life, and it’s not going to happen.
The good news? It doesn’t have to be hard.
In fact, here’s a quick training on how I let go of my to-do list forever. That’s right, no more tracking down sticky notes, finding emails from last week, or searching meeting notes for information!
Oh, and if you’ve ever run into a scenario where you keep pushing a task down the priority list, I have a simple 4 step process to stop procrastination in its tracks.
