DON’T KNOW HOW TO LIVE ACCORDING TO THE PLAN? YOU ARE NOT A DOLT, YOU ARE AN IRRATIONAL PERSON!
How many times at the end of the year did you make a promise to change your habits and “hold your head”? But new year’s eve passes, and you understand that the thirst for change is not enough.
It’s time to do something…
We want to help you keep your promises and start the year easy and effective. There is a method of self-organization in which no plans needed! This is time management for irrationals.
Alexander Baru, a Moscow Business School coach, a well-known specialist in marketing and advertising, and an expert in creating advertising creatives, will help us understand the pros and cons of the new concept.WHO ARE THE IRRATIONALS?
Irrationals are those who are disparagingly called “disorganized” people. They are spontaneous and impetuous, incapable of long and monotonous work. But the irrational will quickly Orient in the situation, know how to adapt to the circumstances, it is easy to ignore old rules and make incredible discoveries. If, of course, they find a way to “assemble” themselves.
It is clear that with such an anamnesis, it is quite difficult to plan something. Indeed, what are your plans for the year if yesterday you dreamed of becoming a famous writer, today you are a yoga instructor, and tomorrow you are going to share your experience in a series of individual master classes?
But there is also good news! With a proper approach, you can do everything at the same time.
THE CONCEPT’S MEANING
Alexander Baru: “Do what you are interested in. You can perform several tasks successfully at once — that’s the main point.”
You don’t have to complete tasks in order! Do what you’re interested in when you want to. Switch from task to task as soon as you feel tired. And success will not be long in coming!
Alexander Baru: “As long as it’s interesting, you can roll mountains and move very quickly, doing several things at the same time.”
Frequent change of activity helps to maintain a good pace of work and less tired. And by doing what you really want to do, you will achieve much better results.
… AND CONS
Alexander Baru: “at the most crucial moment, the case can get boring and then it is put an end to it. There are 24 hours in a day, and several cases at the same time may require attention for 25 or even 30 hours. Then mistakes will be made somewhere. You need to select issues based on their importance. Because no one has yet learned to cancel the deadline.”
You will still have to distribute the load and set priorities. It just needs to be done in a different way. Then you will meet the deadline fully prepared.
1. MAKE A LIST OF YOUR FAVORITE AND
THINGS TO DO
Down with the plans! Instead — a list of what you want to do and what you need to do. Check it often to see what your heart is at the moment, and go for it!
2. WRITE DOWN IDEAS!
During the day, the Muse visits you repeatedly.
Don’t be lazy! Write the thought in your notebook. You’ll probably need it later.
3. SET REMINDERS
It is easy to forget to do something important because of frequent changes in activities. A reminder on your phone or computer will help you get back to an important task and avoid missing the deadline.
4. MONITOR YOUR MOOD
Even the most interesting task without proper attitude will be done poorly. Check the list more often and change the case as soon as you feel that you are starting to get bored!
5. MAKE A LIST OF YOUR FAVORITE THINGS TO DO
Make a list of tasks and activities that clearly do not cause you to work with enthusiasm. This is what you will do when you are not in the mood at all.
6. DON’T FORGET TO CHECK YOURSELF
After you have completed the next task, pause. When you return to the task after a while, double-check yourself. In the excitement of work, it is very easy not to notice mistakes.
7. ENJOY THE PROCESS!
Don’t set long-term goals. Make a list of activities that bring you pleasure, desires that you would like to implement, and focus on them.
REMEMBER: THE PATH TO THE GOAL MUST BE AT LEAST
MORE PLEASANT THAN ITS IMPLEMENTATION.
