If You Want To Accomplish Something – Choose!

There are 60 seconds in a minute

There are 60 minutes in an hour.

There are 24 hours in a day.

There are 365 days in a year, plus a bonus day every 4 years.

Everyone has the same constraint.

(As far as I know) you have to sleep, eat and breath to live. The rest of your time is yours to spend how you want; but you only get to spend it once in this lifetime.

Some people accomplish amazing things in that time. Others don't seem to accomplish much, but they may be busy; even very busy.

The magic secret?

Choose.

Every single day, every week, make a choice.

Choose what you are going to accomplish.

More importantly, choose what you are not going to accomplish.

You can't do everything. The more you take on the less time you have to spend on each thing.

It is actually very hard to choose. I find myself being overly optimistic on what I can accomplish (desire) and what my talents, skills, knowledge… and time will actually allow me to accomplish.

Avoid distractions (part of the choice). Focus and start moving forward. Build forward momentum. Get it done. Ship it. Go.

If you want to accomplish something, the first thing to do is to make a choice… so choose.
