USING YOUR CALENDAR
I’ll be the first one to admit that I’m (in)famous for making lists and never doing a damned thing on them. I’ve talked before about my Lowest C AcuMax Index profile, and how my hard wiring makes it hard for me to focus on completing one task at a time. It’s not an excuse, and any of you who are Lowest C’s, too, know what I’m talking about. If you don’t, you’re probably a High C. Lucky…
Anyway, I spend more than my fair share of time off on tangents, chasing tasks not even on my list, or not finishing the ones I start (of which there are multiple). At the end of days like that, I feel stressed out. I look at the list I started the day with, and when I can’t cross anything off, I feel defeated.
This was a chronic problem for me a few years ago, and one that resurfaces easily if I am not disciplined about implementing other strategies. In honor of this month’s theme of using what we’ve already got at our disposal, I’d like to share my number one tool in my arsenal.
