Too many times – especially in today’s busy world – I get distracted from what I’m intending to do. It can be as small as not going to bed in order to get enough restful sleep because I didn’t follow through or from losing focus on long-term goals.
Because I know who I am and how easy this can occur for me, I must always have tools and templates in place in order for me to get back on track with minimal down time. You will find lists, sticky note reminders and paragraphs of goals – both short range as well as long in my workplace for my benefit.
Don’t get me wrong, I make sure I get down time to rest, reflect and rejuvenate, but when I’m in work mode I don’t want to stray from the path of doing the tasks that are important for me to accomplish where I’m going.
