Is the Tail Wagging the Dog?

Is the Tail Wagging the Dog?

By: PJ Weiland, Business Coach at Action COACH

In the words of Jim Rohn:

Either you run the day, or the day runs you.

When you reflect back on the past three months think about how you managed your days. Did you have control of your schedule or did the day fly by and you wondered where did it go?

The more deliberate you are with your time and schedule the more you can accomplish.

Here are some ways to keep you on track:

Don’t let others steal your time. Let others know that you shouldn’t be interrupted. When appropriate ask others to wait until you complete what you are in the middle of.

Stay focused on the task at hand, remove distractions from your work area. It can be okay to turn off your phone, or shut down your email alerts.

Set your calendar with admin time, client time, marketing time, time for personal growth – then stick to it.

Know yourself. When are you most productive? Schedule those things that require you to be at the top of your game during those times.

Transform your to do list into your calendar. Schedule blocks of time to get these things done.

YOUR CHALLENGE: Plan to get the most out of the next 90 days, set your schedule to reflect what you plan to accomplish.
