In This Episode, Jay Talks About
- The Lies – misinformation we’ve all been fed about multitasking, discipline, willpower, balance, and everything matters equally.
- Low hanging fruit, and why that can be a bad thing.
- The Truths, and Jay shares a quick, effective way to approach your to-do list.
- The Focusing Question: “What’s the ONE Thing you can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?”
- The Domino Effect.
- Extraordinary results – living with purpose, living by priority, and living for productivity.
- Goal setting to the now, beginning with your someday goal, and working backwards to your 5 year goal, 1 year, 1 month, 1 week and 1 day goals.
I prepared a FREE download – The ONE Thing Planner – to help you tackle your to-do list. I use this every day to help me stay on task and focus on my ONE thing. If you want to achieve extraordinary results each day, download the planner.
