This is the key bit for me:
➡️ Daily reviews
It not just helps with making sure I work on the right things. I (mostly) do that anyway. There is a hidden benefit from daily reviews that not many people talk about.
I’ve noticed that in times where I don’t take 5 minutes to review goals and the day’s tasks – slowly but surely – over a few days – procrastination sneaks out of the long grass. Ready to ruin my work day.
It’s an evil little sneaky 🐍 snake.
Before you know it, she’s curled its way around you, trying to squeeze out motivation, injecting her procrastination poison.
The daily review is the only anti-dote.
So when I notice I’m getting f@ck all done – I reboot:
- revisit my projects.
- clear my mind by dumping everything on paper in a list to review later
- set that weeks priorities
- agree with myself the 1 thing I will accomplish on that day
- create momentum by starting with some small easy tasks
This gets me back on track, and sends the snake 🐍 back into the long grass.
