This week’s motivational nudge: Stay on track

I like planners and what they embody – a place to create and visually implement plans so we can achieve our goals. The problem with this is that the most beautifully laid plan can go completely awry if we keep getting off track.

This week’s motivational nudge : Create an intentional plan for your day and week and then focus on staying on track, intentional and present.

  1. Take 10 minutes every morning this week to list out your top 3 priorities for the day and assign blocks of time to accomplish them.
  2. Become aware of when you notice a distraction taking you away from your focus. Use the carrot and pomodoro method to stay on track. Set a timer for 25 minutes to continue working on the task at hand, and then allow yourself 5-10 minutes of a distraction if you need it. That way you’ll have something to look forward to as you complete what you need to get done in bite sized chunks.
  3. If you end up having something come up that is higher priority than what you’re working on, switch gears, get that done, and then clearly mark out new blocks of time either on the same day or the next day for the pending tasks. This will help with staying focused and on track while remaining flexible and prepared for change as your day progresses.

Have a great week!
