Work Smarter, Not Harder

I ask myself, “Would anything terrible happen if I didn’t do this priority item?”

If the answer is no, I don’t do it.

I cut off nonproductive activities as quickly as possible.

I keep small talk to a minimum during work and study hours.

I have trained myself to go down my “To Do” list without skipping over the difficult items.

I concentrate on one thing at a time.

I focus my efforts on items that will have the best long-term benefits.

I make use of specialists to help me with special problems.

I don’t expect to earn credit for my intentions.  When I study, write a paper, or prepare a speech, I produce.  If I don’t see something tangible happening I pick up a pen and paper and make it happen.

I remind myself: “There is always enough time for the important things.”  If it’s important I’ll make the time to do it.  If I don’t do it, I reassess it’s importance.

I don’t waste my time feeling guilty about what I don’t do.  I make my choices, and I bear the consequences.
