Some people don’t like plans, they prefer to go with their gut feeling and focus on whatever seems right in the moment. If you’re one of those below should be helpful.
Clear you mind – each morning take a piece of paper and write down the ideas, thoughts which are floating in your head.
See what stands out for your and select three items and focus your efforts on those.
If you follow any productivity system and you’re used to keeping various of lists, make reviewing those your priority for each day.
Sounds obvious and simple but it’s not always easy. There were many time when before I managed to open my task list I got sucked into the email and my day was gone. To prevent that and get few things done start your day with REVIEW and PLAN:
- Review your project list and pick three projects you want to move forward.
- Review your action list and select three items you want to finish first.
- Focus on the three actions first, one at a time.
- Once you’re done with those look at the projects and pick one, make as much progress as you want and them move to the next one.
Perhaps any of this won’t be easy or even possible to achieve each day but once you make a habit it will become more natural.
