Time is precious, and it honestly feels all the more so right now, so here’s how I’m making it happen: I spent some time last Sunday setting goals for the next 3 months. I didn’t pick too many, just one that I’ve been avoiding, and one that makes money (💪🏼). Then I broke them down into many smaller steps and action items. Then I wrote down in my planner on what date at which time I’m working on said action items, period the end. That’s honestly the nutshell. There’s no magic for motivation and focus, just attention and intention, along with commitment. Yes, things come up all the time that conflict with my plans. In those instances, I simply move a time assignment to a different slot. But because I’ve written it down, I move it rather than flake on it or just skip it. Flaking on my commitment to myself only leads to beating myself up and further procrastination. For me, writing down what I’m working on, then blocking time on my schedule to work on it is the only way anything gets done. How about you?
Even coaches need to effort to control what we can 🙂 . I hope sharing where I’m at — tired of letting the news cycle control the flow of my work, energy, & priorities — and the strategies I’m recommitting to, helps you as well. Please leave a comment to let me know!
