Thanks to My Priorities Map, I know what I want to accomplish every week, but it’s still a challenge to focus each day. My inbox, twitter, linked in, facebook, reddit, google news and clowns and criminals in high office all offer huge potential distraction, enticing me to waste the day away. Not to mention there are things I like to do, and things I don’t.
Yesterday I tried something new. I changed how I do my “daily scrum”. In my calendar, I have an appointment with myself, every day except Sunday. Here’s the agenda:
What did you accomplish yesterday? (Give yourself a high-five!)
Of all the things you want to you get this week, what is the most important thing to accomplish today?
Are you having difficulties doing this? If so, who can help?
Yesterday, it really helped! So I have set up my calendar to send me an email with these three questions every morning at 8:30 for the next week. A friendly reminder to celebrate and focus. I am going to try it for a week and I have asked a colleague to do the same. We want to see if this helps!
Do you think this might help you? If so let’s try it together. Drop me a line here (my contact form), and I’ll let you know how you can participate!
