Every day have 3 day goals
2) Avoid screen-sucking: e-mail = dopamine?
‘I just go check my e-mail’, and one hour later you find yourself still interacting with the screen.
3) Set your default response to: ‘Let me get back to you on that’
Most of us tend to be very generous too quickly. The next thing we know, we get overcommitted. We say ‘yes’ to too many things.
4) Never worry alone, get the facts, make a plan
=> Or: celebrate even the smallest successes or the tiniest progress. ‘Catch’ each other doing things better and better…! Be ‘progress detectives’ to each other.
5) Cultivate lillies & get rid of leeches
Lillies: people and projects that are worth it. In order to have time for your lillies, you need to get rid of your leeches. The 2 main reasons why people can not get rid of their leeches are guilt and inertia.
A caveat: too many lillies can become a leech! What and who do you give your priorities to? See nr 1….
What’s the first strategy you want to work on? What inspiration has this given you? What will you start doing – doing more of – avoid doing?
