How Having A Written Plan Increases the Likelihood of Achieving Your Goals by 10x
So you’re swamped with work, have errands to run, meetings to attend to, blah blah blah. Basically you feel like you don’t have any spare time to do anything else. Well let me first ask you this question: How do you go about getting everything that you “need” to do done?
Obviously before you take any form of action, you need to define what you want to achieve. Because clarity is an essential part of productivity. You won’t get sh*t done unless you know exactly what sh*t you need to do. And before you get started on this list, you should determine what the most important task is; Otherwise, you are much more likely to procrastinate.
So start by writing all of your tasks down instead of trying to sort them all out in your head. Only 3% of adults manage their time with written goals. And this 3% is 5-10x more productive than those who do not. So what I’m saying is, write your f*cking tasks down in order of importance so you can actually start getting sh*t done—that means you too Mr. Smarty Pants.
After you’ve made your simple task list, plan in advance by breaking these goals into a series of steps you can manage to accomplish one after another. And use checklists to help you visualize your goals. Because when you look back on what you’ve completed, you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment which will keep you motivated to continue.
Again, you save a sh*t load of time when you work from a list because you don’t have to decide what to do. Also, be sure to use the 80/20 rule when building your task list. Every 10 tasks should have 2 that are far more important than the others. So focus on the most important tasks at hand.
Most people do the easy sh*t first which leads them to procrastinating on what matters most. And that is a recipe for disaster. So get your sh*t together and write down your goals to get more done, faster.
Hope you enjoyed the read.
