Feeling too busy to accomplish your goals?

Feeling too busy to accomplish your goals?  We all know that feeling.

This month’s message is meant to help you “own your days” versus letting the days own you. I want you to maximize your energy on the right tasks/strategies to be as productive as possible.

Whirlwind of Busy:  Don’t Get Sucked In

How amazing does it feel when you have a really busy day, but you were also super productive?  Who doesn’t want more of those days?!?!

If you open your mind to the possibility of it, it’s pretty simple:

  1. Understand exactly what needs to be done each day. Don’t worry about the whole week or month.  Focus on today!
  2. Become crystal clear on what daily activities have the biggest impact on our goals. Need help with that?  Ask me!
  3. Create a daily short-priority list. After making your list, decide which activities have the highest impact.
  4. Then focus on one thing at a time – that which offers the biggest gain.

When the whirlwind of busyness starts whipping up your day, take control of it. This is something you can change and will get better at over time. We all fall into the busy category from time to time but, during those times, it is important to recognize it for what it is and move forward with action.  Look back on the 4 steps above.  Maybe have them printed out where you see them regularly, to help to make them your new habit.

What one activity will deliver you the biggest gains tomorrow?

Little by little, a little becomes a lot.

I am here to tell you that small improvements accumulate into remarkable results.  A slight change in your daily routine can guide your year-end results to a very different destination.  How you approach things now will determine the difference between where you are and where you could be.

In his book Atomic Habits James Clear states, “You do not rise to the level of your goals.  You fall to the level of your systems.”  Results have very little to do with the goals you set and everything to do with the systems you followed.  Think on that…

goalsOur potential weighs so heavily on what we think and the beliefs that materialize from thoughts.   This is because behind every action you take there is a system of beliefs and these beliefs will either empower or disempower you.  Henry Ford was spot on when he said, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you are right.” 

If you want to change your results, then change the beliefs that caused them.  Realign your beliefs and your actions will follow.  Those new actions will become a system of small improvements that achieve different outcomes – goal shattering, winning outcomes.

Hitting those year-end goals…You Got This!
