Leader Board

 (TBD) It is critical important to recognize the need to match the approach we take to the challenge. If you have a really bad procrastination habit, then you need to be ready to do more preparation BEFORE you try to start.  It’s easy to slack off.  For example, I sat down to write but I realized it was going to take me a few minutes to figure out my Next Actions.  This could be trouble.  

We are continually collected data on what words best for our readers.  The abbreviated list below is based on data gathered from just a dozen people, but the results were pretty consistent (last updated: July 10, 2017)

  1. Have complete clarity regarding your Next Actions.
  2. Start on the right foot.  Over and over we see that how your first hour goes, so goes your day.  Work on the most important things first.
  3. Lean on systems rather than goals.  Being able to distance yourself from your end-goals and consistently bring your focus to execution.
  4. Willpower extenders.  Using pervasive reminders and cues to limit decision making and keep you on track.
  5. Creating accountability.  Using a virtual assistant (VA) to check in on your progress throughout the day is remarkable effective (although our readers resist the first step – hiring a inexpensive VA)
