Keep the Focus or Lose the Plot
by Ted Gulas

It's quite normal to feel a time crunch - that is, lots to do and just not enough time to do it. BUT trying to tackle lots of things at the same time just doesn't work. Indeed, it often makes things worse by severely affecting your physical and emotional health and opens the door to costly and time consuming mistakes.

If you attempt to juggle that all-important e-mail and tomorrow's busy meeting agenda, all while looking at a year's worth of to-do's on your desktop, you'll soon 'lose the plot' and end up doing nothing.

Here's the plot:

  1. At the end of each day, decide on 3-5 important things to accomplish tomorrow.

  2. Block out a period of time (8:00 - 9:30 AM works for me) when you commit to doing one thing at a time.

  3. Guard this time by telling your colleagues not to disturb you and don't cheat by checking your e-mail every 5 minutes!

You will notice two things happen. Firstly, you'll enjoy what you're doing a lot more and second, you'll be amazed at just how much you can accomplish in this time.
