New Years already seems like a blur. Many resolutions have gone by the wayside already and most of us are back into our working week. In 2016 are you in control of your to do list or is someone else controlling your day?
Venture Capital superstar Chris Sacca, said recently on a podcast, that you need to take control of your to do list so that you are doing the things that will move you towards your dreams and goals. In most cases, if you’re not planned for the day ahead, you allow other people to steal your time, force you to overcommit and take your focus away from what’s important for you.
One key step that can help is each night before you retire to count zzz’s, ensure that you are very clear in your mind what one thing you need to do the next day for yourself, your business, your family, your health, whatever it may be, that will move you towards your dreams. The next morning, as part of your morning ritual, look at your to-list and ensure that what's on the list moves you towards your dreams.
In the absence of having a true understanding of what’s important for you, and clearly articulating it, you will inevitably allow others to swamp you with their own to-do lists and your own dreams will get further and further away.
