I was talking to a new client yesterday and they raised a "problem" that almost everyone I talk to seems to have. Before they finished telling me the issues they were having in their business, I knew they were going to say, "We just don't have enough time in a day."
If you have said this before or find yourself saying this a lot, keep reading. I'm going to share some tips with you to help you laser in on the success you want. Whether it's having more productive days, reaching goals faster or getting organized, these tips will help.
Tip #1- Define what success really looks like for you.
This is vital to really achieving success, to have a clearly defined picture of what success looks like for you. Many people are trying to achieve things that are really not important to you. I was listening to Stedman Graham one day in a seminar and he had us do an exercise that really help me narrow down what success looks like for me. We took out a piece of paper and wrote out in 20 seconds what was important to us in life. At the end of 20 seconds whatever you had on the list is what you should focus on. Most people had written down family, freedom, financial independence, good health and happiness. Then he ask the ALL important question, "How many of your lives are designed to achieve what's most important to you?" Almost no hands with up in the place. So my challenge to you is to really TAKE, MAKE, SET ASIDE the time to write down your list in 20 seconds.
Tip #2- Structure your day to finish key task.
Stop it with the long laundry list of stuff you know you are not going to do. Just looking at your list makes you tired. Focus in on some key task that will help you reach bigger goals. When you compare your list to the time you have in a day to accomplish anything, then you really don't have enough time in a day. But you do have time to do 2 or 3 key task. That would be 10 to 12 task done a week, far better than looking at a list of 100 things and doing none of them.
Tip #3- Spread the wealth.
Everything really doesn't have to be done by you. I know you think you are the only one that can do it, but you are not. And no the other person is not going to do it like you, but it will get done and you will be ok. When you learn to work as a team, you can do more. I love the acronym T.E.A.M "Together Everyone Achieves More." So look for opportunities to spread the wealth around, whether it's at home or in the office, don't be a "Do-It-All-By-Myself" person. You defiantly will not have enough time for anything.
Implement these three tips to experience more success!
