I don’t know about you, but I am a person who likes “routines.” I like knowing what I will be doing each morning and a timeline to do it in. I realize this is not for everyone, but one thing I do know is when I am off of my routine in the morning my day is just not as productive.
Recently, when reading John Maxwell’s book, “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership” I came across what Maxwell calls his “Navigation Strategy.” I though I would share this with you today and possibly if you are not a routine person, and feel you need to be more productive, this might inspire you to give it a try.
Also, if you haven’t read John Maxwell’s book, I highly recommend it.
Predetermine a course of action
Lay out your goals
Adjust your priorities
Notify key personnel (This could mean your spouse or family)
Allow time for acceptance
Head into action
Always point to the successes
Daily review your plan
Even though I am not working, I still plan ahead and have a to-do list even it is small and easy. (Also, so I won’t forget!)
You are so right lists and routines do help us not forget what we need to do 🙂
