4- Schedule Significant Stuff First~ We are so responsible that we cast aside things that will make biggest impact in our lives. Or maybe it is fear that holds us back. In any event, add important things to your schedule as a priority and move towards what you want.
5- Systematize~ Consistently look to create systems to save time. Remember how time is saved by having a system to mow lawn. When something new goes in a cabinet something old comes out. Return calls and check e-mails at scheduled times daily. Throw junk mail in trash immediately. Give your items a home so nothing is ever lost. Schedule blocks of time to handle tasks in various roles you hold. Automate. Keep a running list of items you need and errands, then handle at once. Systematizing with regard to a person’s strengths and passions is even more advantageous.
