What’s the first thing you do when you sit down at your desk?
Do you check your email?
Probably. That’s what most people do.
If there is ONE THING I could tell you to do that would help you get ahead with your business it would be to stop checking your email at the start of the day.
If you made a to-do list the night before or the week before you probably have a good idea about what you want to do that day.
Then you check your email.
And it all goes to hell in a hand basket.
Immediately you are reacting instead of doing. You’re answering this question and that question and that other question and pretty soon it is noon and you’ve gotten nothing on your to-do list done and you’ve done nothing you can actually bill for.
Try this instead:
Before you shut down for the night, open up the project you want to work on first thing in the morning.
When you sit down at your desk, work on that project for two hours. (You can take breaks. But don’t check your email.)
Try this and tell me how it goes.
