The first law of success is to concentrate, to trim all the energies to one direction and to go directly to the point, looking neither to the right nor to the left.
There is never enough time to do everything you have in mind or intend to do. We all are literally swamped with work and personal responsibilities, as well as projects, books we intend to get and read in one of these days as soon as we get caught up. But the fact still remains the same that we are never going to get caught up, you will never get far enough ahead of those activities that you dream of, if you don’t know how to trim your time.
Because no matter how much of personal productivity techniques you have acquired and master, there will always be more to do that you can never accomplish in the time you have available to you, no matter how much it is.
You can control your time and entire life only if you change the way you deal, think and work with your never-ending river of responsibility that flows all over you every single day. You can get hold of them to the extent that you stop engaging yourself in some things and start spending more time on those few activities that can really do make a difference in your life. Trim your energy!
Are you drowning in options? These are lot of good things you can actually do that your ability to decide among them may be the critical determinant of what you accomplish in life.
Napoleon Hill once said and I quote:
“there is one quality that one must possess to win and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants and a burning desire to achieve it”.
The clearer you are about what you want and what you have to do to achieve it, the easier it is for you to overcome procrastination, and get on with the completion of the task. Major reason behind procrastination is vagueness, confusion and fuzzy-mindedness about what you are supposed to do in what order and for what reason.
The great rule for success is to think on paper. Write down your goals and make sure you achieve every one of it.
Remember, planning is bringing the future into the present, so you can do something about it now.
Trim every aspect of your life that needs to be trimmed. The more thought you invest in planning and setting priorities before you begin, the more important things you will do and the faster you will get them done once you get started.
