We are often distracted by things around us. Indeed, sometimes entire mornings or afternoons can go by without actually accomplishing much. If you string these days together, it is no wonder why we are not reaching the level we think we should be at: we’re too busy multi-tasking between emails, voicemails, instant messaging, social media, conference calls, and meetings.
To solve this problem, tighten your focus on getting things done. Ask yourself:
1) What is the one thing that I can do today to move the organization (or my career) forward?
2) What is the one thing that I can do today to move my project forward?
3) What is the one thing that I can do today to move my relationships forward?
4) What is the one thing that I can do today to move ________ forward?
These questions aren’t a clever way to write a to-do list: they are designed to quickly translate your need to get something done into concrete first steps. Each morning, before you start with the hectic bustle, answer these questions again.
