Get a crystal clear view of where you want to take your life. Know which activities move you toward your end goals and which ones actually side track you. For example, if generating more clients is a goal of yours, then with each work activity ask yourself, “Will this activity directly increase my number of clients?”, and change the task if the response is no.
Look around for all that you really can do without. These can be tangible objects, people who take down your energy, activities that are time wasters, or thoughts that leave you feeling disempowered. Now start weeding, a little day-by-day.
Get determined to simplify everything. When you actively choose it as a goal, you will be amazed at what you suddenly see and become aware of, as you move through usually routine activities.
Segment your days and plan for deliberate inclusion of those things that you want to see happen. Set aside deliberate email reading and writing time, for example. When you do that, your tasks will have predetermined deadlines and you will find yourself more focused on the task at hand, increasing efficiency.
