It’s been 2012 for a little over a month and a half now and I already feel that I’ve accomplished so much more than in the entirety of 2011.
Every January instead of a making a New Year’s resolution, I opt to do something a little more useful with my time, a process which can make not just one positive change in my life, but potentially many. I recap all of my accomplishments from the previous year. This includes reviewing each week’s summary on my “to do list” and highlighting my most significant successes that were accomplished and then highlighting the most significant tasks that still were incomplete.
In doing so I noticed that I had put a lot of my priorities on hold because I was starting too many new projects and so I’ve made a commitment now to simply finish what I start. This forces me to prioritize the options in which I choose to invest my time in and has already made a significant positive impact on my productivity. How so?
All the time people ask me how I get so much done each and every day. There are a lot of weapons in my arsenal that you’ll learn about if you follow my blog, this is most definitely one of them. I call it my “super-secret, no bullsh*t priority management approach” but you can call it the “common-sense well thought out approach” if you wish… I just think my naming choice sounds cooler.
Every week or two I intend to reveal another one of my weapons used to battle the obstacle-laden horizon of productivity. If you want to take your business to the next level, with no cost other than the time you take to learn from and implement the strategies that I’ve honed over the last decade and a half, you too will become a powerhouse to be reckoned with in your own respective industry. After all, what do you have to lose? More importantly, what do you have to gain?
While it’s only been a month since my blog has existed, I’ve already received dozens of emails from my readers, the majority complete strangers asking me to talk a little bit more about myself within my blogs. As a result, I’ve made a decision that from now on I’ll also be including personal blogs within the mix starting with a brief introduction about what makes me tick and how I’ve gotten to where I am today.
If any of my personal blogs don’t interest you, please, feel free to skip them. On the other hand, if they do and if you find that we have mutual interests and are compelled to reach out, even just for a chat over coffee, then give me a call. If there are three things in life that make me smile every day, it’s family, friends, and coffee!
So then, what makes me tick? It’s story time… jump into my time machine and let’s go back a dozen years.
