Trying to Get Everything Done
When you tell yourself, "I'm trying to get everything done" here's what you're ACTUALLY saying:
- I can't get it all done.
- I'm not someone who actually does what she says.
- I don't actually know how to get these things done.
Thankfully, there's a simple fix for this.
First, you're going to want to define "everything." Write everything down.
Then, pick ONE thing to focus on. Where your focus goes, your energy goes.
Get clear on the steps to complete that one thing. Write them out.
Give each step a deadline. This is the most important part. You're going to want to spend more time here thinking through your day and your week as you're picking deadlines. This is what I call thoughtful planning. This is one of the biggest stumbling blocks for those of you who struggle with follow through. You don't plan thoughtfully - you just pick an end point that you aren't actually committed to, that you haven't fully thought through.
Keep those deadlines on that list or put them in your calendar. Despite what you may have heard - one isn't better than the other. It's about what works best for you. Try out one way and see how you like it and if you're doing the things. If not, it's time to reevaluate.
This is how you ensure you get things done!
