Discipline and a Clear Vision
Every bit of organizing, prioritizing and planning, comes down to Discipline and a Clear Vision of what we truly want out of our life. Our ability to select our most important task, begin it and then to concentrate on that task single mindedly until it is complete is the key to high levels of personal performance and productivity.
Every great achievement of mankind has been preceded by a long period of hard, concentrated work until the job was done and done well. Single handling requires that once we begin, we keep working at the task, without diversion or distraction, until the job is 100% complete. We keep urging ourselves onward by repeating the words “Back to work!” or “Just Do It” over and over whenever we are tempted to stop or do something else.
By concentrating single mindedly on our most important task, we will reduce the time required to complete that task by 50% or more. It has been estimated that the tendency to start and stop a task, to pick it up, put it down and come back to it may increase the time necessary to complete the task by as much as three times.
Each time we return to the task, we have to get ourselves going again. We have to familiarize ourselves with where we were when we stopped and what we still have to do. We have to develop momentum and get into a productive work rhythm all over again.
But when we prepare thoroughly and then begin, refusing to stop or turn aside until the job is done, we develop energy, enthusiasm and motivation. We get faster, better and more effective.
Once you have decided on your number one task, anything else that you do other than that is a relative waste of time. Any other activity is just not as valuable or as important as this job, based on your own priorities.
Resolve today to take action! Select the most important task or project that you could complete and then launch into it immediately.
Once you start, discipline yourself to persevere without diversion or distraction until it is 100% complete. See it as a test to determine whether you are the kind of person who can make a decision to complete something and then carry it out. Once you begin, refuse to stop until the job is finished.
Do something every single day that moves you in the direction of your most important goal. You will be absolutely astonished at how much you will accomplish when you utilize this formula in your life every single day.
