I had an average day.

Every Monday I take a piece of paper draw 6 equal boxes on it and write Monday to Saturday into each box. Then I fill it with all the things I need to get done in that week. They are ranked from A+ to C in importance. I know to do this thanks to Brian Tracy.

The biggest problem has always been the frenzied way I attacked this list. The pressure is immense. I start many tasks at the same time intending to be able to finish more quickly and often end the day with a few tasks finished, some half done and a lot of papers moved around my desk .

Then I listened to Michael Neill (Super Coach) the other day. He said we just have to try to have a normal day. Just do your best in day you have. You'll be happier and more successful.

I was. I crossed off all my A+ and they aren't easy things to finish! So from now on I'm having average days.

People with clear, written goals, accomplish far more in a shorter period of time than people without them could ever imagine. Brian Tracy
