Build the Day of Your Dreams!
In order to be successful, a person has to build the right habits and practice them on a daily basis.
Your success is determined by your daily agenda.
Many people become overwhelmed with the amount of things they have to accomplish and prioritizing what’s most important. I know because I used to be one of them.
Some people NEVER get started because they simply have way too many things on their plate and don’t know where to start. Others never start because they don’t have a clear understanding of where they want to go.
So many of us go through our days reacting to the things that come at us instead of taking full control of our time and intentionally living each day.
Sometimes it can feel like a mountain or a wall is in our way because there is so much to do and not enough planning or clarity on where to start and what to do.
Can you relate to this?
Are you one of the many overwhelmed people just getting through the day without a plan of action to grow or be successful?
Don’t be so hard on yourself, the good news is that you’re not alone. Many people are experiencing the same feelings of not being as productive as they would like to be, but very few actually take the necessary steps to get “UNSTUCK”.
I was reading John Maxwell’s book “Today Matters” and in it he talks about how Charles Schwab, the President of Bethlehem Steel in the early twentieth century, met with a public relations and management consultant Ivy Lee because he wanted to improve his company’s productivity.
“We know what we should be doing”, explained Schwab. Now if you can show us a better way of getting this done, I’ll listen to you – and pay you anything with reason.
Lee said that he could help him and it would take 20 minutes of his time. He said “Mr. Schwab please take out a piece of paper and write down the six most important things you have to do tomorrow.”
“Now number them in order of their importance to you and the company. When you wake up tomorrow morning, take out this paper and look at number one. Don’t look at any other tasks, just number one and start working on it and stay with it until it’s completed.”
Lee told Mr. Schwab “try it as long as you like and send me a check for whatever you think this idea is worth.” A few weeks later he received a check in the amount of $25,000 with a letter stating that it was the most profitable lesson he had ever learned. Not long after that Bethlehem Steel became the largest independent steel producer of its day.
I wanted to try this idea to see if it would help me when I was feeling stuck, and it really did help!
That idea led me to create a one of its kind, daily guide to help me plan, prioritize, and stay on track with my daily agenda and the results were phenomenal!
I’m now sharing this wonderful tool with everyone who wants to be more proactive about their day and I’m giving it away completely FREE!
All you need to do is subscribe to The Goal Guide newsletter (I promise not to spam you) and you will receive an email with a link to download the “Daily Agenda” spreadsheet that I use every day.
