|There are many proven principles for success. One of them is to be action oriented. Successful people stay away from meaningless distractors, focus their actions on those items most likely to lead to success, and get busy getting it done.
Sometimes folks I work with comment they don't understand how I get so much done and still keep it together in life. The key is to my success is that I have a detailed life plan, and take intentional action. Those things I spend my time doing align with my life plan and are reviewed daily. If items are not important -- note I say important, not just urgent -- I move them off the list or put them on a catchall list for action at some point in the future when they may move up in the priority list.
Plus, once I plan my actions I don't think of the hundreds of action items in the future, unless they are strategic actions which are also listed in my life plan, as they will distract me from the actions I need to accomplish today.
Figure out the actions you need to take to help you reach your dreams, get organized, and take action today!
