Ordinarily I hate lists like this one. But this one is behavioral (mostly), and I like that. Either you got up half an hour early and planned your day or you didn’t. Either you took action, or you didn’t. Either you had that conversation with a role model or you didn’t. For these suggestions you know whether or not you did them, and you can tally your success (or failure).
1. Set your wake-up time a half an hour earlier tomorrow.
Use the extra time to think about the best way to spend your day.
2. Memorize and repeat this motto: “Action today, not tomorrow.”
Handle each piece of incoming mail only once. Answer your email either early in the morning or at the end of the day. Block out specific times to make phone calls, take phone calls and to meet people in person.
