Take Action Using the 80/20 Rule

Many of my clients ask me about time management and how to get more done during the day.  Of course, not many people enjoy getting up at 5am like I do, but you don't have to!  The key to getting more done is to spend 20% of your time planning and 80% of your time taking action and often times it's the opposite.  At the end of the day make a plan for the following day, putting the most dreaded and most procrastinated tasks FIRST on your list.  Stay focused on your tasks without allowing outside interference.  A technique passed on to me in my Mindful Business Action Alliance group is the Pomodoro Technique which helps you stay on task.  The Pomodoro Technique® is a way to get the most out of time management(http://www.pomodorotechnique.com/).  The timer to use while applying this technique is at http://mytomatoes.com/.  If you apply this to your day I guarantee you will get a lot more accomplished!  Email and let me know how you do.
