My law school professor use to tell me that in order to succeed I didn’t have to be very smart I just had to be organized. He would say that law school, like life, is more about organization than intelligence. These past two weeks on the Millionaire Journey have proven his words of advice true!
I’m so excited on the Journey that my mind is racing a mile per minute. I have so many thoughts and am doing so many things that it’s easy to become deflated or burnt out if you don’t have a system of organization. Otherwise, it will be too much input and not enough output, and output, after all is the name of the game and the key to success.
Over the last two weeks, I’ve done a lot to get organized and so can you. To stay organized I usually do the following:
1. Get you a clean space to work. It’s hard to work in clutter.
2. Set your goals and determine your priority. Once you know what the priority is then you know what to focus on. So many of us have a multitude of ideas that it’s easy to get sidetracked. To prevent this from happening, make a list of your priorities and rank them in order of importance that you want to accomplish them.
3. Focus. Don’t try to do everything all at once. This is why you’re creating a list of priorities. Work solely on your top priority until it’s complete or else you will never get it done.
4. Create folders for the various ideas you have. When something pops in your mind related to that idea, jot it down and stick it in that folder. But do not start working on it until you’ve completed what you have listed at the top of your list.
At the end of the day, you will find that you will get more accomplished if you stick to the items above. You will stay on task and be more organized; thereby, allowing you to get more accomplished.
