Don’t make resolutions, create a new habit. It lasts longer. Try the New Year’s Challenge.
Start your New Year with a clear desk. Clear everything off the top of the desk but the essential tools.
Set one major goal for this year. Focus yourself completely into making it happen. Make it a mantra.
Take action TODAY to make your One Goal happen. Even a small action. Tomorrow: repeat.
Schedule time for yourself, right now. Every day if possible, even if it’s just 10 mins.
Practice effective focus. Spend 30 minutes just focusing on one task. Clear distractions. It gets easier.
Realize that you don’t need to respond to email right away-no one expects you to. It can wait! Checking email just twice a day is possible if you let go of the need to respond immediately.
