The 10 minute cheat to being successful.

28/10/2013 by


Elbows are out; you’re fighting with the fellow commuters for your space at Bank station. Stuffed in on a tiny carriage breathing in some unfortunate smells and having your foot crushed. Breaking free you flee the station, quickly pick up a coffee from the cafe and fly to your desk. 167 unread emails over the weekend, phones ringing like crazy, Sue from accounts needs that form, your being chased for countless deadlines, calendar invites are pinging up on the side of your monitor. STOP.

STOP. Lock your PC. Sit in an interview room, or the boardroom or even in the kitchen. Take a piece of paper and a pen. Breathe.

In order for you to be successful you need to first acknowledge how to get there, and what the best way of getting there is. It is quite easy for each day to wiz into the next and get to Friday and not know what happened that week, so first and foremost you need to plan.

From a daily plan detailing what you want to achieve and how you are going to do that, to a yearly plan and where you hope to be this time next year. It’s good to have it written down and on your desk so you are constantly reminded with what is important and what you NEED to get done.

Every great successful person will work to day plans/ lists. It’s a great way of keeping on top of your workload and also ensuring you keep to cut off dates and don’t let things roll on longer than required.
