Create Time Management System on how to plan your days, create a list of 10-15 questions and answer those questions to create your ultimate day. Here are some possible questions:
– What must I accomplish today?
– What project do I need to focus on?
– Who do I need to follow up with today?
– What do I need to do to make progress?
– What prospect do I need to call today?
– What appointments do I have, need to make?
– How will I improve my health today?
– What meals will I have and where?
– What time will I get up, go to bed?
– What phone calls do I need to make?
– What spiritual activity will I do today:?
– What will I do for my spouse, family?
– What will I delegate?
– What will I do for self?
– 2 most important outcomes for day?
– What time will you go to bed? Might be silly question, but a client of mine mentioned it as being a problem for her. So we talked about it and discussed possible solutions, i.e. set alarm for time to get ready for bed and an alarm for lights out.
Block 15 min on your schedule to answer these questions, feel free to change or edit them.
Once you have answered your questions and made a list, ask yourself “Do I really have to do this? If not, cross it off. Can’t do everything, prioritize, when doing so be sure to make your own wellbeing a top priority, nobody else will and when you’re frustrated and worn out you’re no good as business owner, employer, CEO, employee, spouse or parent. The people around you deserve the best, not left overs.
Once a client of mine was asked by her husband: “What would be the absolute worst thing that could happen if you didn’t do X?”
A good question to ask when you feel overwhelmed.
