Have 3-4 Daily Priorities
The brain wasn’t made to multitask. That’s why driving and texting is dangerous. When humans hyper-focus on something, however, almost supernatural things can occur. One is the heightened productivity and efficiency. By choosing 3-4 priorities a day, you can eliminate options that slow you down and work towards the completion of small daily goals that help fulfill a bigger picture.
Be extremely clear on the priorities. For example, “I am going to work for 3 hours” is a weaker statement than “I will work on Project 1 for 3 hours to finish objectives X, Y, and Z.”
Some call this SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Time-Specific) goal setting, and it can be used in fitness, business, life, or anywhere else you find yourself planning to do things.
