PLAN EVERY DAY IN ADVANCE

The 10/90 Rule says that the first 10% of time used to plan your work can save you 90% of the execution time once you start. One minute of planning can save you 10 mins of execution time, and help you improve your “return on energy”. By setting aside 10-12 mins for planning, you can save 2 hours of execution the next day.

CONSIDER THE CONSEQUENCES

Successful people are able to look 10 or 20 years into the future, and make decisions today that are consistent with their desired long-term future, including making short-term sacrifices. When considering whether to do or not do something, ask yourself if it has any consequences for your long-term vision. Rather than set deadlines for everything and feel stressed for missing most of them, focus on the most important task, and give it 20% extra time, so you can do it really well.

Slice And Dice The Task

One technique that you can use to cut a big task down to size is the "Salami slice" method of getting work done. With this method, you lay out the task in detail and then resolve to do just one slice of the job for the time being, like eating a roll of salami, one slice at a time. Or like eating one piece of a frog at a time.

Develop A Sense of Urgency

Highly productive people take the time to think, plan and set priorities.One of the ways you can trigger yourself is by developing a “sense of urgency.” This is an inner drive and desire to get on with the job quickly and get it done fast. This inner drive is an impatience that motivates you to get going and to keep going. A sense of urgency feels very much like racing against yourself.
