There's a big difference between leading a productive and fulfilling life and having a BUSY life with no time to do the things you really want to do.
Yet so many people (especially writers) figure they HAVE to be busy, busy, busy every moment of every day or they aren't being productive.
But you want to know a secret?
Most of these people who feel so frazzled and wish they had more time, probably aren't as productive as the person who has a very narrow focus and tries to complete ONLY a few projects each and every day.
Answer These Questions
How many projects are you working on right now?
Are most of these projects related to your overall goals, or do you constantly find new things that attract your attention, so you keep adding more and more projects to your to-do list?
Your Daily To-Do List
If your daily to-do list is too long, you probably don't have a narrow enough focus.
Go back and look at today's to-do list.
Pick one or two things to focus on that are in alignment with your overall goals.
Focus on ONLY those one or two activities and you'll probably be able to complete those activities (at least in part) by the end of the day.
And you won't have spent your time simply being BUSY.
You will have been highly PRODUCTIVE.
And isn't that what you really want?
