I think on a daily we are bombarded by things that need to be done. For example it is currently 6:12 am, I have been up and haunted since 3:45, because I can't stop thinking of all the things I need to do before this week is over.
Beside being a prolific procrastinator, having a packed schedule just overwhelms me and I want to curl up in a ball and watch Love & Hip Hop. But that is not on the list of things to do, therefore I cannot do it.
In this video I talk about things that I have had to start inserting into my day to day, to ensure that I don't waste time unnecessarily. These are tips that I've gotten from my professors at school, my bosses, my mentors--and they've helped me let go of hang-up's I've had about certain things and become a much more productive person with the time that I have available.
One thing I didn't talk about in the video, that my boss pointed out to me recently is that I work very well with time lines and action plans. I am a huge advocate for actions plans and setting a time limit as soon as you set your goal. What I find this does is makes you completely accountable for what you need to get done, and gives you the extra push to finish the work on time.
