Learn how to organize your life and learn to focus on the main things
The peak of summer vacations has passed, and my head is still thinking about vacation. How difficult it can sometimes be to get into a working rhythm and inspire yourself to new achievements! We will talk about simple ways to organize yourself and how to set priorities.
Vladimir Mikov, Moscow Business school business coach, DBA, MBA, consultant, coach, took part in the preparation of the article.
All problems start with the fact that we do not know how to plan things correctly. It does not matter whether the person is the head of a large company or an ordinary Manager.
Lack of planning is a form of irresponsibility. Self-organization, on the contrary, is a sign of discipline and a serious approach to things.
Include in your life a few useful habits that will help you make plans, achieve goals, and be an effective Manager:
WAKE UP EARLY
DO NOT COMMUNICATE WITH OTHERS IN A STATE OF ANGER
“I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TIME!”
I don’t have enough time!
However, there is a big minus that negates all your efforts. This is a banal statement by which a person justifies himself: “I don’t have enough time.” Let’s look at the reasons for the notorious “time pressure”.
External factors: periods of serious changes in the market, changes in legislation, environmental disaster, technological breakthroughs, orders from the authorities.
Internal reasons that lie in the character of a person:
UNWILLINGNESS TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE PROBLEM
The most terrible disease is not knowing your own disease.
UNWILLINGNESS TO LEARN
It might work like this: “I already know everything, even that I’m a fool. But I don’t want to change anything and I won’t.”
THE HABIT OF HASTE AND FUSSINESS
The main thing is slipping away, but I will continue to drag the burden of routine cases further.
I do everything exclusively myself, so I don’t have time to do anything.
Another problem that many people face is the lack of a big and clear goal. When there is no certainty, the future looks unpredictable and even frightening. Add laziness to this and you don’t want to do anything at all. Stop!
In order to save time in the future, you must first spend it by investing, for example, in your own training. You will gain new knowledge and experience, and increase your self-confidence. So go ahead and direct your energy in the right direction.
THE MOTIVATION FOR THE BENEFIT OF

What should I do if my performance is at zero and the prospects seem dim?
Get your motivation back and start setting priorities. Everything is simple here.
Answer the question: “What tasks most affect the implementation of plans, dreams?”.
Imagine a motivating chain.
And it is better to draw it:
Goals-Opportunities — Conscious motivations — Analysis of problems and needs — Representation of an ideal future — Search for resources — Implementation — achievement of the goal.
Use the Eisenhower matrix principle.
Assign tasks according to their significance.
Divide the entire list of things to do into important and unimportant, urgent and not so important. This way it will be easier to cope with the effect of lack of time.
THROUGH THE THORNS TO THE STARS
Through the thorns to the stars
Now let’s look at what drives us on the path to dreams and success. Goal setting is the Foundation.
This is the process of selecting one or more goals according to our requirements. There are several methods of goal setting.
When to implement plans, a person is guided by intuition, coupled with experience and knowledge. We listen carefully to our own thoughts, ideas, and guesses.
This option is useful if we do not know how to achieve the result. An experimental process is underway. For example, you want to find a hobby that you like. Try yourself in sailing, parachuting or karting, until you realize that it is yours. Then sum up and choose the appropriate hobby.
Ideal for those who like to put everything on the shelves. Write tasks that can be completed to achieve the goal. Enter the qualitative and quantitative criteria that affect the result in the table. For example, you want to buy an apartment. There are the following ways: take out a mortgage, save money, and win the lottery. We calculate the time to achieve, the degree of complexity, evaluate the ethics and choose the best option.
“CHOICE AND PRESCRIPTION”
This method will work when you already have several goals set by someone,and you only prescribe them to yourself.
As you can see, it is not difficult to organize your life. And always remember that neither vacations nor holidays will be a hindrance if your work is fun. We wish you inexhaustible sources of inspiration and Grand plans!
