If you do each moment the most important thing for the day, you will have done everything by the end of the day.
Ask yourself once every hour, what is the most important thing at the moment? Time is the only leverage we really have, we better start using it to the important things.
When we direct our attention to the important we may not get necessarily more things done, but we get that which is important done and that’s all that matters in life.
I’ve been trying to practice asking myself about the important things for about a year now. Yet the breakthrough happened quite recently when I realized that if I just do the important things I am done, I do not need anything else.
With this thought I get:
My work done.
My exercise done.
My writing done.
My reading & studying done.
Preparation for the next day done.
A good night sleep.
What more I could ask?
Determine what’s important for you.
