This is the perfect time to start new productive habits. I know I get lazy at year end and don’t hold myself as accountable as I do during rest of the year....So many distractions!
So if you're anything like me you're in the same boat so I figure, let's start this year off together and walk through a few simple steps to get organized and get productive.
The first thing you'll do is to clear your mind of all the “clutter” hanging around. Putting things on paper (or computer doc) gets it out of your head so you can focus on what's really important. Make a list of all the main areas in your life and under each category list the specifics you need to do.
I find it's easiest to narrow this down to two main categories: business, and personal (and I suggest you do the same). Start with personal because if you are not fulfilled personally you'll never be fulfilled in business. Plan at least an hour of “downtime” every day AND put it on your calendar. EVERYDAY. You MUST mark out this time first to ensure you keep that time just for you. This becomes a standing appointment with your self.
Next you'll schedule business and other appointments around this time. You'll want to be careful to schedule YOUR personal time at a time that is least likely to be wanted by others. After I've set my personal and business Quarterly Goals (more on that next week) I fill in the remaining time slots. Once you know you'll be taking care of yourself you can begin to make my goals specifically for Business.
Now that we've got the framework for your calendar planned out, we need some productive goals to fill in the space! Stay tuned...how to write goals is next. Until then, leave me your thoughts on scheduling your time - do you have any sticking points that you find come up over and over? And if you found this helpful please share it!
