Priorities, priorities, priorites: Maximising your priorities for your success

If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I'd spend six sharpening my axe.   Lincoln, Abraham

How many of you sit down to do some work, feel you have too much to do and decide to go make a cuppa or watch 5 mins of home and away (omit here and add your soap of choice) to clear your head but get distracted from how much you need to do?

Go to bed but get up again to put a reminder on your phone?

Feel anxious when you wake up because you have too much to do?

I have trained and coached people on all various topics however one thing that comes up time and time again is how to overcome feeling overwhelmed and out of control due to having too much to do.

Many people have a lot of different tasks to complete in a day however achieve very little, because they are not concentrating their efforts on the things that matter most. Prioritising is about more than just organising your to-do list. It is looking at all those tasks and asking yourself; how will this task have a significant positive result to my working life? What is really important to me? Is this critical to me and my business? What do I care about?

Priorities and getting organised go hand in hand. Everybody has their way of being a bit more organised, I personally am a list queen but this does not work for everybody. It is useful though to write a list of your 5 most important tasks to do each day, I encourage you to do this today and every day for 7 days. This will give you a snapshot of how you are spending your time and will hopefully in turn help you become more in control and motivated to continue writing down your tasks (or perhaps finding a more effective system that works best for you)!

Getting organised ideas:

  • Take the time to plan
  • Dedicate time to focus
  • Focus on the right things and invest your time correctly and more business will come your way.
  • Take time to reflect (my next blog so look out for this)!

What is your key organising tip for your success? Let me know!

Not sure where to start on your vision and goals? I have limited spaces on my next workshop on the 11th of December:
