TIME TO TAKE CHARGE!



The "take charge" the first thing you'll need to do is to define your goals. Goals for your morning, day, week, month, year or life!
 
If  you've ever written down dozens of goals and yet haven't even met half of them yet, you'll need some keys to unlock the fulfillment of your dreams.  The first key is to set realistic goals and list the steps it will take to achieve them.
 
Divide and conquer, in other words, break down those long-term goals into short-term smaller tasks.  Using this list, begin to schedule in small parts of the overall project.
 
Unfortunately many people shy away from goal-setting and planning.  It's just easier to keep things vague and generalize what we might tackle than to actually define objectives and commit ourselves to them.  Also, unfortunately, people who say  they'd rather be spontaneous usually don't achieve much of anything.
 
Prioritize your list of goals or tasks.  Begin with:
         What is most important
        Secondly important
        Good if you can fit it in
        Would be nice
        A luxury
        Not really necessary.
 
By doing high priority tasks first, you'll do more and feel better about what you've accomplished.  Simple clarification of important tasks and then planning when to do them takes the stress out of demanding jobs and you'll get more done!
 
Once you see the tasks in order of importance you'll have a feel whether or not you can realistically accomplish them or if you'll need to consider asking for help or delegating to someone else.
 
Prioritizing lessens pressure and when paired with thoughtful planning, will multiply your time.  In other words, Priorities + Planning = PRODUCTIVITY!
