Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed with the number of tasks you have to do each day? Do you sometimes wonder how you could possibly get more done? I know I do.
Like most people in today’s society, I’m trying to do far too much. I work full time as a manager in the public service, I have four delightful, busy children to raise (together with my fabulous husband, who also works full-time), I look after a gorgeous but high-maintenance heritage-listed house, I am the musical director and chief administrator of a great choir that specialises in early music (including lots of traffic on youtube), and, oh yeah, I’m trying to establish myself as an author. Not to mention friends, family, etc… The list is endless.
So how can I possibly get it all done?
I have recently been getting lots of inspiration and great practical ideas from James Clear, and this week is no exception. His simple tip on how to become more efficient overnight is brilliant. I think I sort of do it… but not completely. And not consciously. Making it more conscious, and setting a limit – just six things – makes it easier to cope.
My full ‘to do’ list is way too long, so I like the idea of choosing 6 priorities for each day and focus on finishing them (if possible). Check out the full article at http://jamesclear.com/ivy-lee -and let me know if you find it helpful!
