"What is the next best step?" As difficult as it may be to answer the question at times, some activities fall out immediately. Checking the external framework before starting a task often saves a lot of effort and energy.

From the author:



Only those who have their goals in sight will be successful!

Focusing is the magic word of success. Only those who have their goals clearly and consistently in mind at every step has an effective effect and increases its performance.

So, on that Thursday you should be at 10: 35 clock at your office or your office. On the right and on the left are your To-Do or Not-To-Do lists, which help you with various criteria to go the next promising step.

But how do you set priorities right now, especially those that you keep in mind? Refer to the following framework criteria in this order.

  1. Context: What action can you take in your environment? If, for example, you are sitting on the train or plane, telephoning proves to be cumbersome to impossible. In the car, on the other hand, computer work has to wait, a telephone call can prove particularly effective.
  2. Available time: Is the time to complete the project in whole or in part? The question often arises before another date or the approaching evening. You only have half an hour? But the action will take longer? You'll find something different!
  3. Available energy: Do you feel fresh and creative? Everyone has specific phases during the day, in which he is fitter, more alert and more concentrated. Effective people use these phases deliberately.
  4. The right time window: Are you a morning grouch? Then you'd better plan for more time to start up. A breakfast meeting is not the best idea. However, if your activity level increases after 16 p.m., you should postpone important decisions until the afternoon.
  5. Set priorities: What is your priority? To answer this question, it is essential that you know your goals. You need a clear "why". Because every decision should be determined by your priorities.
  6. Reset other factors: So it is possible that you have to reset the other factors (context, time and energy). However, if you want to be successful, you often have to accept a call despite a bad connection and, despite the night activity, you have to take part in an 7: 30-Uhr-Meeting.
  7. How do you recognize your priorities? Believe me: What is most important and most important to you at this moment - Thursday morning - comes from your intuition.

Conclusion: Consider yourself and your project from different dimensions

However, you are successful in the end with your project or topic only if you look at yourself and your projects from different dimensions. This multi-perspective helps you to evaluate your tasks from very different perspectives.

There is more information on how to do this in Part 3 "Goals always in focus", which also deals with the tools for prioritizing - and the extremely important question of how to check your actions and actions.
