How often do you find yourself running out of time to do everything, your to-do list (if you even have one) sitting on the kitchen table, willing you to cross out just one thing? And not the thing that you created, just so you could cross it off!
How often do you know you have tons to do, but just don't know where to start?
And how often do you let distractions get in the way, the shiny objects in your peripheral vision just too enticing to ignore?
God knows, that's most of us.
But there are ways to take back control and give yourself some structure.
If you read my email last week, you'll know about the Pomodoro technique, a way to keep your mind focused on the task ahead.
Breaking your day down into blocks works much the same way.
Set your priorities up front, note down your non-negotiables (i.e. things that can't be moved, like the school run or a dentist appointment) and then work your day around those.
The key is to stick to your timings which will help with your productivity AND the shiny object syndrome.
To that end, I've created a Daily Planner with Goal Setting pages to help you get started and it's available on Amazon now.
