There are always more things that you can possibly do. The biggest challenge we all have is that there’s never enough time to get done everything that we want to do. Staying focused on our priorities, which allows you to get things done, is one of the toughest challenges we all have.
Many mistakenly believe that they can “multi-task” their way through anything. I often describe multi-tasking as multi dumb! Some think it’s a highly developed skill that all should possess The fact is, it stifles any chance of staying focused, and only adds to your stress and lack of meaningful productivity.
Many also think that making a list of “to do’s” (the longer the better) makes them effective planners. They proudly display their filled yellow pad like a shield that they think will protect them. Again, another fallacy because they don’t question whether some of the things on their list should be there at all! To me, the most important thing about planning and making a list is to decide what not to do.
Stop doing things that don’t make any sense. Focus on those things that have the highest reward/payoff.
The fact is, you can only properly focus on a few things at one time. You must discipline yourself to focus on only the high value/right things. But what are the high value/right things? They are those things, tactics, strategies that make you money, position you to make money and/or move your business/career closer to a desired result.
