Reading Jon Westenburg, I was intrigued by his article about how to take control of my business and my life. Here’s the gist of what he said (with some editorial comment).
Write a list of 100 things you’ll do in your life; not what you might do, what you will do. Divide the list by categories: Need skill for. Need time for. Do immediately. Keep your list in your face.
Create a chart: Skills you have to learn; research you have to do; action you have to take. Begin measuring your progress (be brutally honest). Take immediate action on things you can do over the next 30 days (get some easy, early wins!).
Pick your dates ( A goal is a dream with a deadline!). Convert wasted time (Don’t watch so many cat videos or play so many video games). Have a daily routine: begin your day reading through your master list, look at your charts and columns, schedule things to accomplish today.
Want to accomplish anything? Stop dreaming and take action. Treat everything like a project you get paid for. Invest in you!
