We’re one month into the new year already and it’s a really good time to take a look at your goals and see if you’re on track with where you’re hoping you’d be.
If not, take stock. Where are you getting side tracked that you need to reign in?
Where are you being lazy that you need to step up?
For me, I realized that I am beginning to neglect my routine and when routine goes out the window, productivity is soon to follow.
One of the best tools I have found for this is just formatting or pre-planning your ideal week. It’s a genius idea that Michael Hyatt unveils in so much of his content.
I formatted my ideal week when I got an assistant so she would always know what my best work flow was and how to accomodate. She also knows how she can arrange her own schedule based on what I may or may not need. Just for kicks, I’ll show you what it looks like here.
Some of you may think I’m out of my mind and you may be right, but what I’ve found is that when I come up with something to aim at, an ideal, I get a lot more done than just shooting from the hip at what I think I should be doing.
I also spend a bit of time considering the goals I really want to make a dent in. Sometime what I find is that I get bogged down in the right now rather than the really important stuff I want to accomplish. To combat that, you’ve got to have a place to look. Write these goals down and determine to revisit them at least every week. Maybe two or three times every week. Then adjust your focus to ensure your fitting in a piece of that major goal.
Whatever it is, start, today, right now and maybe the start is just deciding what you’re ideal should be and moving from there.
