Through my programs, I explain how our brains are hardwired and why we are addicted to task completion, regardless of a task’s priority or impact.
Most of us spend our day fighting ‘fires’, attending back-to-back meetings, and trying to keep up with email requests/texts, but by the end of the day, we aren’t sure if we truly accomplished anything.
We always start Monday mornings rhetorically asking ourselves, “Is it Friday yet?”
I don’t know about you… but, to me, that sounds like a terrible way to live. What if you had a different perspective and process where you were able to accomplish goals while feeling energized?
It starts by looking at life as a series of sprints rather than a never-ending marathon. When sprinting, you focus on making the most efficient steps to the finish line.
Much like sprinters, productive people focus on outcome-based goals aligning with the Pareto Principle: “20 percent of your activities will account for 80 percent of your results.” This is not a new concept but a tool that begs to resurface during this time of massive distractions, pace of change and focus on short-term results.
How to Implement the ‘The Daily Delta’. Identify your ‘Daily Delta’ after your morning Board Meeting, while your mind is focused.
Simple Summary: Identify 3 outcome-based goals and just do them. No more, no less.
After your first day of truly prioritizing and focusing on your outcome-based goals, you will experience first-hand the power of mindfulness in action.
