It’s too easy to get caught up in the small things.
We have a ton of things to do on a daily basis but we’re not always focusing on the tasks that we should.
Stop and identify the 3 most important tasks for the day.
Instead of thinking you have to complete everything for the day, take a step back and ask yourself:
“What are the 3 things that I MUST do today?”
This narrows your focus to the tasks which impact your day the most.
Put all your time and energy into those 3 tasks and don’t work on anything else until you’ve completed them.
Once they’re done, you would have made productive use of the day since you’ve already finished 3 of the biggest tasks for the day.
Take a look at the remaining tasks you have, prioritise them based on importance and urgency, and allocate time for each of them.
It’s okay if you don’t get to finish everything. What’s more important is that you focused your time on the tasks that matter the most.
