Message from my mentor on 10 ways to get more work done
Most people get up, check their email or their phone, and start responding to other people’s requests or demands instead of putting the stake in the ground for what they want out of their day first.
When you are associated to the compelling reasons why you want to do something, no matter how big or small the task, it provides you with the emotional drive to follow through.
Out of everything on your list of actions, what is most important.
If you lock in time that is dedicated to working on the things that are important to you and your work first, then it’s tougher to get pulled away by other people’s priorities or urgencies.
The Parkinson Principle states, “Work tends to expand to fit the amount of time allotted to it”. Set a deadline (for yourself or your team) and stick to it.
Look at where you’re currently spending your time. What are you doing that doesn’t support you in getting to where you want to be?
You can’t create the future by looking in the rearview mirror. It’s time to move on and focus on where you are going, not where you’ve been.
This lets your brain know that it is pleasurable to get stuff done, and since the brain moves towards pleasure, it will help you get more done in the future.
The more you associate vividly and consistently, the more you harness the power of your unconscious mind to help make them come true.
