Winning the Day Is A Selfless Act
It’s not a secret, the power list has changed my life. I get more done by noon each day, I’m able to sleep more at night, and I’m not as stressed. The list focuses my efforts and attention on just the things that matter so my short little span of attention can stay on track.
But what I didn’t realize is the act of creating a power list (I do mine the night before just as I’m going to bed – it’s just one more thing I don’t have to do when I wake up) has fostered a better environment not just for myself but for those around me. My co-workers, my family, and my friends have all commented and praised my preparedness and how it’s enabled them to have a better understanding of where I’m coming from and a clearer picture of where I want to go. For an entrepreneurial idea guy like me that lives most of his life in his own head, providing a point of orientation and source of clarity for those around me has been a game-changer.
Structure creates environments where people can thrive. It starts with winning the day.
