Create a Perfect Mold
You need to start your day with a plan, finding a quiet corner and a pen and paper. This will help you truly get out of your mind what is truly needed. A clear outline with a goal, and vision for what you need to do. This will avoid the whirlpool of chaos and you end up controlling it, not the other way around.
Find a piece of paper, preferably with lines, but whatever works for you. Write down the things that are important to you that must get done, and then label the ones that are most important. By doing this you will know what to work on and know where to direct yourself.
Making it short will ensure that you get it done in a days’ time. This will help with your mindset to keep at it, because it will make you feel accomplished.
Throughout the day, keep asking yourself if you’re doing what is needed to be done. In other words, you may need to adjust or tweak to keep you on task. Is your focus being pulled away?
Next, you need to make the list come alive. Set time frames. Start and finish times. Use a timer. You will be surprised at how much more productive you will be and how many things you really can do in a day.
