“If you are failing to plan, you are planning to fail.”
Do you plan your days? Did you wake up today knowing what you wanted to accomplish? To achieve the maximum from our day we need to have a clear structure for it.
What would you regret not accomplishing this year? Why set yourself up for doing an abysmal job, simply because you waited until the last minute and then rushed around doing 10 things at once? Create a plan to accomplish these things effectively, one at a time.
Planning does not have to be long and tedious; it can just be a 60 second process. Each evening, prioritise three small things that you want to accomplish tomorrow and write them down. When you wake up in the morning, review this list before your day starts. If you find yourself being lured to do something that is not on that short list of three things, bring yourself back and focus.
“A plan is a list of actions arranged in whatever sequence is thought likely to achieve an objective.”
