Implementing Your Plan

What?

 What are your life goals? Write them down.

How would you like to spend your next three years? Write them down.

Place them in A, B, C order. See the July 9th Planning Blog.

Ensure your daily priorities are determined. Never leave your office without tomorrow’s priorities on the desk.

Remember to give yourself do nothing time so you can return to work or your projects refreshed and physically able to continue to work hard. Determine your free time and plan it so it doesn’t get overrun.

How?

People spend time unnecessarily on secondary matters, leaving lots of important ones undone. This pattern often tends to be cumulative. Are you guilty of this?

Find time that you’ve previously overlooked. Do you plan, read, listen to things on the ride to and from work? What about when you are getting ready for the day? Rumor has it that Robert F. Kennedy used to listen to Shakespeare when he shaved and got ready in the mornings.

When planning your work, remember Parkinson’s Law, which states that the job or project will expand to the amount of time given for it. Thus, consider something called ‘special emphasis goals, those which take between a week to two months.

Each day, remember to work on something on you’re a list. see July 9, 2017 blog.
