What We Discuss in this Episode:

  • Today’s promise: Tonight, I will get caught up. Guess what happens? You don’t. So, then, it becomes Tomorrow’s Promise: Tomorrow, I will get caught up.

  • You can overcome this anxiety and stress. However, these tactics, while simple, take discipline.
    Embrace the fact that you will never be caught up. This paradigm shift is critical before moving on to the next tactic.

  • Once you recognize that you cannot get everything done, you begin to prioritize your tasks. Identify a small number of particularly important personal and professional goals.

  • Before the week has started, set aside 10 minutes to plan how you will spend your time.

  • Critical questions to answer: How much of your calendar is open? How much of that open time do you control?

  • Resist the urge to plan a 70-hour week.
