Do you have too much to do and not enough time to do it?
If so, you’re not alone. This is one of the most common things I hear.
The volume of things to do can easily feel overwhelming, and in some cases, unachievable.
When this happens, many wonder where to begin. As a result, they tend to procrastinate. Others spend an enormous amount of time and energy overanalyzing what needs to get done that the sheer weight of analysis overwhelms any progress.
Earlier in my career, I used to thrive on being busy, so much so that it became an adrenaline buzz. The problem is that an “addiction to busyness” rarely meant that I was being effective or accomplishing anything of merit. I also had a false belief that multitasking was the secret to getting more done. I used to believe that doing two things at once was the answer. These habits led to stress and a lot of it. Sound familiar?
Here’s what I learned: The more you multitask, the harder it becomes to stay focused on and accomplish any single task.
Time is the most valuable asset you have and you
need a SYSTEM to get the right stuff done in less time.
That system starts with having a weekly flight plan.
The more I experimented with the habit of developing a weekly flight plan to sort my overflowing to-do list, the more I discovered how much I could actually accomplish. The same is true for you.
I put together a short video to share with you some tools and techniques that I use to get more done in less time. I encourage you to watch this video, take notes, and experiment with some of the approaches I suggest.
