Are you taking more action in your life. I recently wrote about focusing on the next step (click here to read). In the last 13 days I have been focusing in on the 1 most important item and working to get this 100% completed before moving on. Its been difficult. Have you ever tried to start something new only to return back to old ways a few days later?
Yes, I have had a few failures and I am still jumping around on a few projects. However, I have felt I have been more focused in the effort. I figure it will take a few weeks to have this really dialed in. I am okay with that as this is a long term commitment to focused on becoming better.
Action is critical in all planning. When you prepare to complete the next step action oriented focus will be needed to keep moving forward. I make it a daily focus to take an action on an activity to move my next step towards completion.
3 tips to help you propel your day forward.
- Write out exactly the most important item to accomplish in the day.
- Calendar time in your day to focus on the 1 thing that needs to be accomplished.
- Shut down the distractions. – Close out the inbox, shut down the internet, and put the phone in “do not disturb” mode.
I hope these 3 tips help you achieve your daily goals and help you take actions that move you forward.
