Are you struggling with time?

Does time seem to get the best of you?

At the end of the day, do you feel you have accomplished a great deal?  Made the best use of your time?

 

Today I want to talk about an old philosophy that simply applied to your daily life, will help you achieve tremendous results.

 

Plan what you are going to do today.

Then do it.

Then at the end of the day – review it and plan tomorrow.

Plan Do Review 

Sounds way to simple to work you might say.

But think about it.

 

If you did every day, what you planned to do, what would happen?

If you did every week what you planned to do – how would it change your life?

If you did every month, year and decade what you planned to do, how amazing would it be?

 

I hear you – “well Manny, life doesn’t work that way.”

Not completely, I agree, but even at 50% success, it can totally change your life.

 

This week, every day, just simple put this into practice and then see if it makes a difference.  It might take a few weeks (to be honest) to make it part of your regular process, but I can guarantee you, if you do apply it, you will have great success.  Don’t get discouraged, just keep doing it daily.

 

 

1/       Plan your tomorrow.

At the end of the day, determine what you are going to do tomorrow.

A good technic is to ask yourself this question,  “what do I want to accomplish tomorrow?”

 

Then create a list of those things.

Prioritize them.

Put a time to each of them.

Schedule them.

 

What you have now is a schedule for tomorrow.

Many of you might already do this; it is the next two steps that kill most of us.

 

 

2/       Do it.

Now based on the above, when tomorrow gets here, you know what you are going to do and when.

Now you just simply have to execute it and track it.

This is critical.

Track what you actually do.

Yes, interruptions occur, but if that is the norm, then they should be part of your plan.

 

At the end of the day, what you have is a list of what you planned to do and what you actually did.

 

 

3/       Review it.

Let me emphasize this step, as being the most critical, and the one most of us don’t do.

It is kind of like most of us don’t want to review where we spent our money.

 

But without this step, it will not work – so do it.

 

Go through the plan and actual and compare them.

Understand what happened, what didn’t happen and why.

Get a feel for what you can do and cannot do to correct the problems and issues.

Learn from today, apply to tomorrow.

 

What you have now is a lessons learned.

 

Now, go back to step one and plan tomorrow using the knowledge from today.

 

Simple isn’t it.

Now go and do it.
