3 Daily Habits for Achieving Your Goals
3 years from now, If nothing changed in your life, are you OK with that?
No, it’s not ok?
The power of leveraging habits is that by pre-deciding as many things as possible, you conserve your limited willpower for important things like starting a big new project or changing careers.
Think big about where you’d like to be in 3 years, set some goals to move you in that direction and then incorporate these 3 daily habits that will help get you there:
- Top 3: Before you jump into your work day, spend five minutes to write down the three most important things for you to get done today.
- Daily 15: Set a timer and spend fifteen minutes working on one of your strategic goals. Just see how much you can get done. Do not spend any of the time planning but prepare a list of activities in advance so that when the timer starts, you hit the ground running.
- Busy Blocks: Block off a half hour to an hour one or two times per day for doing busy work such as answering email, scheduling meetings or creating your to-do list.
Once these are established as daily habits (after about three weeks or so) then add other daily habits to increase your productivity.
