Well, turns out that I had been making the single most elementary mistake in life-management. Yes, it's a mistake I know all about, teach to my clients and I've even shared it with you before.
Did that stop me from falling right into it? Hell no! To see this mistake in what NBC used to call "living color", just have a look at Stephen Covey's demonstration right here:
How to Identify YOUR "Big Rocks" and Avoid My Mistake
Here's a devastatingly effective planning procedure for you. Try it next week and you're sure to see the difference:
Part of the lesson here is to ask yourself if you're really living up to the principles you know. I was truthfully a little shocked to find I was falling into the trap of scheduling the minutiae of life first and then struggling to find room for the things that really matter in the long run. But it can happen to any of us.
So when you get ready to plan the upcoming week, take just a little extra time to make sure you put in your "big rocks" first and use these simple questions to get the clarity you need. You won't be sorry you did!
