If you do not have self-discipline, none
of the above will get done in a timely manner and your work is going to suffer.
Retaining a healthy amount of self-discipline will help you get all of your
checklist items done when they need to be done because it requires you to do:
1. what you are supposed to do;
2. when you are supposed to do it; and
3. whether you feel like it or not.
Tips for Prioritizing:
1. Collect a list of all your tasks.
2. Identify urgent vs. important.
3. Assess value.
4. Order tasks by estimated effort.
5. Be flexible and adaptable.
6. Know when to cut.
Start today holding yourself accountable for all of the important tasks that you need to accomplish today. A lot of this
comes down to having the desire to succeed, plain and simple
desire to succeed
At the end of the day, you must desire
success. The dictionary defines “desire” as: “A strong feeling, worthy or
unworthy, that impels to the attainment or possession of something that is (in
reality of imagination) within reach: a desire for success.”
When you have that strong desire for
success, the self-improvement that you are trying to attain will become a
reality. You may want to improve your time management or become an active
listener and do less talking. It’s right there within your reach! It just
requires a desire to make a change.
