Because I know that my time is limited, I invest some of it in organization so I can be as productive as possible with the rest of it.
I let go of the idea that I can do everything and focus my attention on a few things that matter most to me. I prune out the rest in order to be able to do quality work on those things without stretching myself too far.
Because I am clear on where I am going, I find it natural to break down the steps I need to take to get there. I set realistic daily, weekly and yearly goals so I can accomplish what I set out to do in a reasonable manner.
I let go of the idea that I should be able to finish important projects overnight and, instead, give myself the time I need to do an exceptional job.
I often have many things that I need to remember: names, dates, times, tasks, opportunities, and much more. I utilize a planner and check it regularly because I know that by staying organized I am granting myself greater productivity and a more relaxed life.
1. Do I recognize the value of investing time in organization?
2. Do I take advantage of tools that are designed to help me be organized?
3. Are the activities that use up my time contributing to the achievement of my goals?
