With every year our life accelerates, events go one after another, sometimes we plunge into this fuss and sometimes we just pass by. Sometimes you feel like a passenger of a train, just looking in the window and watching the passing life. But the terminal station is around the corner).
In the rest of the life we have two choices: either we react to incoming events, allowing our life to control us, either we control our life, setting the rhythm and choosing the tasks that are important for us.
And usually happens right the opposite. “Tick-thinking syndrome” is a so-called modern “disease” of making endless lists and ticking off with joy solved problems. But the paradox is that the lists become longer and longer, we get tired and important to us tasks are steel not solved.
To change your lifestyle and to live the rest of it like you really want, you have to switch into proactive mode and to become the initiator of the events. For this you need to be very clear about what you want to realize in the future and to plan your time on the basis of these goals. That is planning from the long-term goals to short-term ones.
So, you need to know your long-term goals. Imagining the coveted dream, its outcome, you will easily make a daily plan just by asking yourself every day the question: “What are the three most important tasks I need to do today to get closer to the desired life”?
- Identify three priorities
So the first thing is to ask yourself every day the question: “What are the three priorities I set myself on this day?”. And by all means do these tasks.
To check the rightness of priorities you should see the obvious connection between the problem to be solved and your desired goal in the future. Only then your plan will work.
Set the right priorities.
- Avoid time consumers.
You know your “sins”: somebody spend his time on the social networks, it is pointless to like friends’ profiles; somebody “hangs out” in conversations or watching television, someone does not know how to say “no” and interacts with all external stimuli, bringing to life someone else’s desires, and not his own. Therefore, it is better to include one task to work with such a consumer to your plan. Just write down in the plan: TOAVOID TIME CONSUMERS: for example, the social networks.
- Feel your rhythm
Each of you has his own rhythm. Someone is an early bird and someone is a night owl, someone is a marathon runner, and able to run long runs, and someone is a sprinter, highly productive in a short time. Basing on the understanding of yourself, you plan your business. It is better for the early birds to plan the most difficult priorities for the morning and for night owls for the afternoon. Thus, knowing your rhythm, plan the most difficult tasks with the highest priority at the time when you are most productive. Simple routine tasks that do not require greater effort, feel free to plan in “unproductive” hours.
- Have a rest
Remember that energy can be taken from four sources: the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual. What breaks should you do during the day? How are you going to restore your energy? Plan it write down in the list.
How to check that you have correctly planned your energy resources? If in the evening, at the end of the day you still have energy, you are cheerful and fresh, then you coped! Yes, yes, it’s possible).
Four points. Here is your daily plan:
Is it too much? No. Does it take a lot of time? No. Productively? If you have correctly identified priorities and implemented them throughout the day, you will be surprised by a sense of satisfaction every day andby approaching of the targets!
