Like most men, “my eyes are bigger than my belly”………. Yes mum, you were right 😉
I often give myself a very large menu of things to do, and every morning I am super eager to get to ALL of it.
Bernard Baruch’s thought speaks to measuring out our tasks so that we do NOT become enslaved by them.
He suggests that we do less, because as we’ve been told over and over, very often LESS IS MORE.
Accomplishing task after task is not in anyone’s best interests.
Think about being the 10-12th patient on a surgeon’s “to-do list” and suddenly you have greater perspective.
Unless it is an absolute emergency, simply wait your turn and count your blessings.
Before doing anything else, I would recommend you spend today finishing something that is truly meaningful to you that you have already started.
Seeing something through to completion that is truly IN-SPIRING to YOU is far more satisfying than taking on something new.
Once you have done this I recommend planning each day in accordance with my purpose to priority system.
Here we chunk down your life’s calling into:
- 10 year mission
- 5 year long term goal
- 3 year milestone
- 1 year medium term goal
- 6 month short term goal
- 90 day key project
- 30 day focus
- weekly steps
and then eventually your daily themed, 3 HIGH PRIORITY PERSONAL & 3 HIGH PRIORITY BUSINESS TASKS. 🙏🏻🙌🏻🌌🤗😜
