I’m not one to preach, but you have to get your priorities in order if you want to be successful and happy. My mantra is this: If you don’t want to do something, don’t. If you have to do something, make it a priority.
Making a priority is tough. Most people will have trouble making a real life priority of everything they want to do. They don’t have the motivation to make it a priority. The way I see it, if you want to improve your life, you do it on a regular basis. Like, every day. Not, every minute. Every day. You might not realize it, but you’re building momentum.
To help you get started, I’ve created a productivity calendar that tells me how many hours per day I should spend on a specific task. One of my favorite features is to have a daily goal. For instance, my goal is to play a new game in 90 minutes. If I know I can only do it in that amount of time, I can set a goal of “90 minutes.” For instance, 90 minutes of watching a TV show.
I can’t speak for everyone, but I find a little bit of self-awareness helps me to be a bit more productive. I use a timer to count down what time I have to work on something, and then I know if it’s enough. I’m not a very great golfer, so I don’t usually start work until I feel I’m getting about two hours of solid work done in a day. I’d say I work about 4-5 hours per day.
If you’re like most of my friends, you’re probably constantly working on stuff. Whether it’s a project, a startup, or a social media account, you probably spend most of your time working on something. But if you have a goal and a timer, you can get to work much sooner.
While I might not have the time to work on something when I want to, I can always look at it as proof that I have a goal. What usually happens is that I wake up, and I just stare at the wall. I might have a couple of ideas and go out and grab them, but then I see the wall, and I’ve already forgotten about them.
I know, I know, but to me it’s a reminder. It’s not about thinking about yourself. It’s about time.
I have a theory. I think that there are people who really don’t want to work on things because they are too busy thinking about themselves. I can think of a few people who are like that. I think if you really want something, you have to work on it. I really think that if you want something, you have to work on it. If you want to write a book, you have to write a draft. If you want to do something, you have to do it.
The most important thing is to remember that you are not responsible for the success or failure of any task in life. You are responsible for yourself. You are responsible for your actions.
You are responsible for making sure you are taking care of yourself, and you are responsible for how you are taking care of yourself. There’s a lot of stress out there, and we all need to be careful what we put into our bodies. If we don’t take care of ourselves, we can really put ourselves at risk.
