Want to get more done? Get your hair done!

This is one of the many emails I get that illustrates how the strategies I teach are so simple, yet so effective.

Hi Marc,

Just had to share with you.

The RPM/Gap Management session we did on Wed has got me so focused.  And those plastic files, so simple BUT what a difference – I’m just dying to cross everything off my lists!

Off I went to my hairdressers appointment files in hand.  In between hair colouring, setting, washing, trimming and blow-waving I literally crossed off 6 things from my list that have been waiting months and occupying mindspace. They were some outstanding appointments, claims and follow-ups.  Man – how free do I feel!?!?!

The only thing I didn’t do which would’ve been so cool was to get them to take a photo of me… Next time.

Thanks!

Juggling and Time Management

I was talking to someone recently who was overwhelmed with too many things on his plate and I told him something that I thought was worth repeating here…

Juggling 10 Balls and dropping 6 is not the same as juggling 4 balls

Juggling 10 Balls and dropping 6 is not the same as juggling 4 balls

Juggling 10 balls and dropping 6 is not like juggling 4 balls.

First of all it’s a lot harder and you don’t look very good dropping the 6 balls even though most people can’t even juggle 3 balls. That’s the point – PUT THE BALLS DOWN AND JUGGLE THE ONES you can handle THEN and ONLY THEN do you toss another ball in the air.

Successful people juggle a lot of balls and the less successful think it’s the way to go – doing MULTIPLE things at a time.

It’s not. It’s a recipe for disaster and makes you look foolish.

Stop it! Re-gain your compose, reduce your stress and improve your results.

That’s it for today – short and sweet.
