Over the past month, I’ve been busy working on a few projects for clients. Naturally, I began to focus on my most essential tasks. It’s amazing how your productivity increases when you determine to spend time on things that have to get done.
I would encourage you to tear-up that “To-Do” list and create a “To-Get-Done” list. Without realizing it, my time spent on FaceBook, Twitter and simply browsing the web began to significantly decrease. I went a few weeks without changing my FaceBook status and reading non-essential e-mails.
Aside from my increased productivity, the responses I received from people were truly amazing. People thought I was sick, left the country or mad at them!
Please don’t allow all this technology to become a distraction!
On Facebook, I enjoy asking people, “What’s your word for today?” I recently said that my word was LIMITATIONS – Limit time spent on unproductive activities.
Ask yourself, “What do I need to focus on in order to move to the next level?” Whatever items are NOT on that list need to be minimized.
