I work smart. I strive for simplicity. I shorten my to do list and cut down on my commitments. I clear away clutter at home and work. I put aside distracting thoughts. I take action now rather than waiting for inspiration to strike.
I focus my efforts. I do one task at a time. Paying close attention reduces my stress levels and increases the quality of my work. I save time by doing things correctly from the start.
I conquer procrastination. I identify the obstacles that hold me back. If I feel anxious, I calm myself. If a project seems overwhelming, I break it down into separate parts.
I ask for help when I need it. I delegate more. I collaborate with others.
I understand my peak hours. I tackle demanding and important tasks when I am at my sharpest.
I batch similar tasks together. I take care of my weekly errands in a single trip. I check my messages at designated times and return noncritical calls and emails in one sitting. I prepare several meals during the weekend that I can freeze and eat later.
I get adequate sleep. My body and mind need 7 to 8 hours of rest each night in order to function well.
I recognize when I need to change course. I cut my losses or approach my goals in a different way.
Today, I maximize my impact. My habits allow me to accomplish more with less effort.
