Most individuals begin each day with goals in mind, only to have them be pushed aside when other tasks or issues present themselves. Allowing constant interruptions to take over can cause you to feel overwhelmed and unproductive.
Here are some tips to help you manage the many tasks that present themselves each day without losing focus of your goals:
– Make your first task of the day to prioritize your top three goals.
– Keep these goals at the forefront of your mind as you go through the day.
– When you are interrupted, stop and think about where this falls in your priorities for the day before abandoning your current task to take on a new one.
Reflect on three tasks that you would like to achieve today. Be sure to consider how you will still achieve your daily goals if you are interrupted.
