We’re approaching the end of another year. And isn’t it true–the older you get the faster time seems to fly by. Now’s the time to start thinking about the life you want in 2009. Are you ready to tackle those habits that have been preventing you from keeping commitments to yourself?
Here are your productivity tips for this month:
1. Make it a goal – The philosopher Neville said “Don’t think OF your goals, think FROM your goals.” Are your goals your wish or someone else’s? If you can’t get excited about it, then it’s probably not something you should identify as a goal right now. Setting a goal has to do with actually seeing it…wanting it…tasting it.
2. Make it a priority – there are a million things that can get in the way of getting to your priorities. Identify the types of thoughts that get you off track. The next time you need to work on a priority and you hear those thoughts say ‘thanks’, push that first thought aside and climb into that which is most important. It will feel a lot better.
3. Make it an action – Planning is critical. But implementation is the objective. What actions can you take to execute on priorities in order to reach your goal? Take the action now and reap the rewards in the future.
