I hear this, I read this, I have this problem myself at times.
There’s just not enough time in the day to get it all done.
Suffering from the ‘not enough time in the day’ syndrome?
Yep, one of the things that is eating up your time is just that sort of thinking.
Okay, Allen, so what can I do about it?
Glad you asked . . .
This is one of the biggies, even for the biggies. When you whip this, you’ll be absolutely smoking.
My take on Mike Litman’s “Success 6” method. That’s a great resource btw, Mike Litman.
At night, list the 6 most important things you need to do tomorrow. (may not do this justice on the fly, but hope you get the idea. He also recommends choosing the ones that you know will better your life, business, etc, and that you find you don’t want to do.)
Put them in order of importance. (I like to put them in order of reward if done.)
Next day, take out your list, start at number 1. Finish it. Move on.
That night, take what’s left of your list, oh yeah, you’ll have days you don’t get all of them done, and make it 6 again.
One thing that works for me especially well, is instead of using the ‘today I’ll do this, this and this’ method, I use the list, and put “I’ll do this before 11:00, this by noon, this by 3:30, this by . . . ”
Be well, live well, die last.
