People ask me how I get stuff done. What they are really implying are, James how do you all the things that you do and complete them and put out product within the 24 hrs a day we are given. LOL Well I am going to share a tip with you. Here it is:
Schedule the time!
Literally schedule the time! Use a regular calendar, your google calendar, dsayplanner, whatever that will work for you to schedule the time. That’s how I complete tasks. So how do I do it…
I walk around and take notes on what I need to do. It can be laundry, emails, write a book, go in the garden, and plan out the week. (If that is too much, plan out the next day) TO start out I would block 2 hours per task (later you will know about how long to block out time). Now you don’t have to use the full 2 hours. That’s not important. But you have the time open to you.
After you schedule the time, you stick to it and you work ONLY on the task for that 2 hours. Don’t still try to do 2 other things at the same time. Stay on course and just work on that one thing.
Now if you go over the 2 hours that is fine. Especially if you are working on a creative project, work on the task until you are feel you are done. Then you look at the things you may have scheduled that you didn’t get to and reschedule them. The big thing is to complete items.
This system does require you to make a schedule. You are asked to be present in what you do. AND you have to hold yourself accountable. There is a chance to complete tasks and this is the simplest way for me to explain how I do it! You can do it too! And don’t be hard on yourself as you being this. Start out slowly and you will get there!
