Did you know that we create our own chaos? It is never the circumstance that causes the chaos, it’s what we do to ourselves about the circumstances.
I used to create chaos around me especially in my office. I would over commit to do too many things, try to shoot from the hip and create piles of files and stuff to do all around the office. I would tell myself, "I'll do that later. It can wait, It's to difficult to work on now, etc" I couldn’t find a thing and I would throw up my hands in overwhelm. Sound familiar? The chaos was totally caused by me and my beliefs and then I let it get in my way of doing the work. I used to hide out in the chaos and confusion to avoid showing up.
Once I started being responsible for the chaos, I began touching files only once. Kept everything in its place and put everything I needed to do in my calendar. I made a list of the things I had to do and a list of tasks to do to get each project done. I worked backwards from the due date and scheduled all the tasks in my calendar. I was amazed at how much I got done and I had way more energy because I wasn’t thinking of all that I had to do...just what I had to do today. I also was amazed at how my self confidence, self respect and self love increased. I changed from "overwhelm" to "I got this." Great result.
If you recall, the way to meet your sales target is to chunk it down to the number of calls to make a day. Well, if you chunk it down for your projects and commitments, it becomes what do I do daily to get the job done. Try it.
