When we get motivated to attack and crush a goal, we tend to unknowingly make the process more complex than it needs to be. We create noise that keeps us from moving forward. I’m not sure what it is about the human condition that attracts us to noise instead of action, but we seem to make a beeline for noise like a politician to a camera …or an intern.
Eliminate the noise – get more done.
The Wrong Way To Organize Your Day
When you first establish a goal, more often than not you begin simply by making a to-do list of things that will help you reach it. But as you begin to list the things that will help us achieve this goal, something starts to happen. You realize that you have other things to do besides that goal.
So your list starts branching off. Now it has three to-do’s for the goal you’re trying to achieve plus a get milk or drop off dry cleaning here and there. Add in a call Randy and an organize filing system – and what do you have?
Noise. Unproductive, confusing noise.
