Have you ever had a busy day but still felt you didn't get enough done?
Have you ever had a day filled with tasks that just don't inspire you and leave you feeling frustrated?
We all have the same 24 hours in a day and our results come down to how we choose to spend that time.
Are your daily actions making you millions? Or are they keeping you stuck in the same patterns?
Working on highest priority creates the greatest results.
I've included below the priority process to maximise your results.
The Priority Process
1. Know what is most meaningful and important to you
If you don't know your values then you won't know what your priorities are.
If you don't know where you are going then you won't know what your priorities are.
Your priorities are the chunked down, daily action steps that will take you one step closer to your inspired vision, will take you one step closer to fulfilling your mission.
You have a mission a message and a vision.
“When the voice and the vision on the inside is more profound, and more clear and loud than all opinions on the outside, you've begun to master your life”
Dr John Demartini
Your true priorities are designated by your inner voice.
Your true priorities are the fastest and most efficient path to the fulfilment of what is most important to you
2. Get it Out of Your Head
Start by getting everything on to paper that is taking up space and time in your mind. Write down everything that you feel needs to get done.
Do this on a daily basis and track it.
Everyday I write my 7 highest priority action steps that will get me one step closer to my vision.
At the end of the day I mark the ones I completed green. I mark the ones I worked on but didn't complete yellow and I mark the ones I didn't take any action on red.
I track this over 90 days.
When I see that I have marked a task red more than once I delegate it away.
3. Determine the Actions That Get You the Greatest Results
Not all your actions are equal. In fact the Pareto Principle, the 80/20 rule applies. 20% of your actions are getting you 80% of your results and 80% of your actions are getting you 20% of your results.
Most people's days are filled with low priority actions, shopping, cleaning the house, picking up kids..but ask yourself, do the world leaders in your industry do these things?
These tasks may have meaning to you, so I'm not trying to negate them if they are that you love, but if they are not high priorities for you then consider delegating them.
Focus on the actions that you love, but that are also producing the greatest results.
For me I determined that only 3 of my actions were producing the greatest income and giving me the greatest fulfilment.
Getting in front of people and speaking, delivering my courses, and planning and delegating in my businesses.
Everything else was just wasted time.
I stopped cooking, cleaning, going to the supermarket. I stopped doing answering the phones and business emails and doing any work in the business.
I created a strategy to delegate all of that away and my productivity, fulfilment and results began to increase.
4. Do, Delegate, Dump
Take an inventory of everything you are doing on a daily, weekly and monthly basis and write it down.
Then write down all the things that are on your mind to get done.
Take that list and ask yourself two things, does it inspire me to do this task? How much does it produce?
Then organise all of your task into one of three categories
Do - Do I love to do this task? Do I get a great return from doing this task? Does this
