In Part 1 we were talking about Planning - Listing those TOP 3 THINGS that will focus on in January that will make the most difference to your business.
HOW have you done?
Have you managed to tick off even one of your Top 3 things or like most have you already become side tracked by the day to day running your business?
Now is the time to STOP and re-focus. Look at your top 3 goals again and ACT on them NOW. Not later NOW - even if it is just breaking them down into smaller chunks and ticking off the first action. When you start doing this you will feel as though you are moving in the right direction rather than getting to the end of your working day (I know, I know !) and feeling as though you have not achieved what you were hoping to.
HOW DO YOU DO THIS?
We find that by setting a timer for just 1 hour first thing in the morning helps focus our minds on our priority tasks and therefore we are (hopefully) always slowly moving in the right direction.
Grab you Diary!
- Write down all the things you HAVE to do today.
- Number them in order of importance
- Then work through them
Set the timer for each task a maximum of 1 hour and FOCUS until either the task is done or the timer goes off and then ...
Go and get a cup of tea !
Try it and let us know how you get on.
Have you thought about the question we asked you .... (If not put it on your list!)
Would you benefit from working and chatting with other like minded designers in a closed Facebook group? Practise things, ask those really silly embarrassing questions that we think we should know but don't and have someone that will hold you accountable when you don't do the things that you keep saying you will? Comments would be greatly appreciated - tell us how we can help you and we will do our best to find a solution.
