It is so easy in this world to get distracted by minutiae that is NOT contributing to the bottom line, your career, family life or whatever you focus might be.
How do you maintain focus but still achieve many things? What are your techniques and tips for this?? I do use my “3 things to achieve today” technique to move things along that are stagnating (although some days it can feel more like 10 things).
I suppose it is the daily small steps towards an end goal and keep plugging away at it that is my method. I would be genuinely interested in what you do - I think there are a whole variety of ways this can be done and it would be fun to explore how other people manage it. I also LOVE lists, I have been known to add things to lists just to tick them off – but don’t tell anyone.
The other thing I do is regularly drawing up a plan to achieve something - identify the elements of it and the steps I need to take to get there - clear objectives behind what I am doing in my daily breakdown. I have a creative side and I love the mindmapping tools and just plain old squared paper and coloured pens - give me an hour, a piece of paper and pack of pens and I can hand you back an illustrated plan!
Keeping a goal in mind and taking small steps towards it helps you remain positive about your goal - especially if it is a big one and there are quite a few little steps before hitting the big one.
What will be your focus this coming year?? Do you think you might need some help to keep on track? I have a programme that might be the one for you. We meet face to face once a month and we speak on the phone in between, focussed on your key objective. For just £25 per month (for however long you want to keep going no contract) you can have one on one focus on achieving one of your big goals in life. Does that sound like something that might help? Give me a call and get a free initial session to get you going now and ahead of yourself for the New Year.
Putting you and your mind in the right place.
