When your life’s too cluttered and overwhelming then you may shut down and procrastinate by lying lazily on the couch and just watching the TV or your smart phone.
When that’s the case then start uncluttering both your work hours and your private time. Two questions that have helped me to do that and to find what is most important are:
- What would I work on if I only had 2 hours for work today?
- If I had just 1 hour of free time today then how would I spend it?
Use these to get out of an old rut, to question your normal day a bit and to find your top priorities.
Then see what you can eliminate, minimize or perhaps delegate of the things that are not contained in your answers.
