Have you ever tried to do too many things at once? As a serial goal-setter I have to admit that is something I struggle with frequently. How on earth am I ever supposed to accomplish everything I want if I don’t master the act of multi-tasking??
I’ve tried to do this correctly…. all organized and such… creating my to-do list, putting things into categories, filling out my day planner down to the mili-second, etc.
I’ve tried waking up earlier AND staying up later… which usually just results in a migraine, causing me to be even more behind than I was when I started.
I’ve tried timers and charts and detailed plans of action… I’ve tried a lot of things, and you know where I usually end up? Exhausted and frustrated at the end of the day, asking myself “How did I manage to do SO much without actually doing ANYTHING today??”
If this has ever happened to you, then I invite you take this challenge with me —
I, Jordan, vow from this day forward to begin my day with an hour of FOCUS. No phone, no email, and heaven forbid I dare to open Facebook or Twitter. I am gifting myself with ONE HOUR to focus on the ONE GOAL that I determine to be most important at that time. More than that, I VOW to choose one important goal to focus on for 90 days.
Not 90 seconds, or even 90 minutes. 90 days. One Goal. One Hour Per Day. Every Day. No Matter What.
Do you have any idea how much more you will be able to accomplish by implementing this strategy? It has the power to be life-changing! I can feel it in the very depths of my being.
So stay tuned folks… I’m on a mission. And when this mission is over, I also vow to share with you exactly how I did it and exactly what YOU can do to implement it for yourself.
(PS: I realize this post doesn’t contain much content for you to act on and implement immediately… that’s not usually my style, so if you’re looking for some “meat” check out one of my favorite posts “7 Ways to Change Your Life Through Gratitude”)
“That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.” Steve Jobs
