How a single daily habit can transform you from a “busy” person to a true peak performerJun 02, 2021
I’ve never met someone who wasn’t “busy.”
Everybody’s busy...busy running businesses….busy managing teams...busy raising the next generation...busy chasing dreams!
Some are pretty efficient – from sunup til’ sundown, they’re steady grinding, knocking items off their (long) to-do lists.
Are they peak performers?
Maybe. Maybe not.
A person on a stationary bike can burn plenty of calories without actually going anywhere.
Likewise, there’s a difference between being busy, and being strategically busy.
In our latest ebook “NEXT: How Your Next Chapter Can Be Your Best Chapter”, we share the secret of “The Power of 2” – one of my favorite tools for avoiding the trap of confusing quantity of action with quality of action.
Ask yourself: “What are the 2 most important things I need to do every day/every week and/or every year to reach my nearest goal?”
Then, write your answer down and define what your daily commitments are.
Check your list at least once a week. This will help you preserve your focus, and keep your more important goals – your “money makers” – from taking a backseat to your “time wasters.”
