Hi, it's Andy
Yesterday, I showed you why being in control of YOUR priorities is a life-changing skill. (Read that email first if you haven't already.)
If you're like me, the question you're asking yourself now is "How do I find the time?"
On the surface, the answer seems simple enough.
There's no shortage of interviews, books, and courses on time management, goal setting, productivity, and planning.
Type any of those words into Amazon and you'll be hit by a bewildering array of books promising to transform your life with this one easy step.
If you spent months or years reading them, would it help?
But here's the thing I learned the hard way.
Setting better priorities and staying focused on them doesn't happen because you have dozens of tools in your "getting things done" toolbox.
The impact - the kind that makes the difference between:
the prayer uttered on New Year's Eve of "This year will be different"
the quiet certainty you have control no matter what life throws at you…
…happens when you have a small number of powerful tools in your toolbox that you actually know how to use.
Read that last sentence again. It's important.
Bruce Lee said it best. "I don't fear the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks one time, but I do fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times."
Tomorrow, I'll share a few of the key tools I rely on the most, and I'll let you in on a secret no one else will tell you.
See you then…
PS. A quick heads up that tomorrow's email will have a time-sensitive opportunity to raise your hand for something especially we have planned for late January.
That's the ONLY opportunity to raise your hand so keep an eye on your inbox tomorrow.
