How to get things done that are important to you

How to get things done that are important to you

I know what it feels like to have these ideas and dreams and struggle to get started. Figuring out what is important and how to get things done can be challenging.

I have 3 kids, am a multi-passionate and run 3 businesses. It wasn’t until I discovered how to create focus and time management skills that suited me that I began making an impact in my life and in my businesses.

But just how to do you identify what is important to you? How to narrow down what your steps are to move towards your goal?

At the end of each month, I sit down and get clear on the goals that I want to achieve. I start with the main goal and then break it down into smaller goals. The smaller goals are the action steps that support the main goal.

This will look like this:

  • Main Goal
    • Smaller goal
    • Smaller goal
    • Smaller goal

You can create as many smaller goals as you need that will support your main goal. And once you have identified what will help you achieve the main goal, it is time to create action steps for each goal.

  • Smaller goal
    • Action step
    • Action step
    • Action step

The one thing I learned that may be helpful to you is that goals and action steps change. It’s important to allow for flexibility and recognize when something becomes less important.

Here’s the thing to remember, all those smaller goals and action steps support your main goal, and you can work them into your schedule. Start with the one that seems most important or pressing to get done, and add it to your daily planner.

Then look at all the other steps and tasks you need to get done and rank them by priority and fit them into your schedule accordingly. Some tasks will take less time than others. Some smaller goals you can get done in one day while other’s need to be spread out over a week or months.

Get things done you want to do

Get things done you want to do

Are you struggling to get things done?

Do you have lots of thoughts and ideas you want to make happen?

Yeah, I think we all have been there a time or two or more. And it can feel overwhelming on where to even get started.

And truthfully, this is quite normal. We all get overwhelmed, even the seasoned idea generators and creators will feel lost on where to get started.

This could very well mean you need to take some time out and off from your everyday doings. Just allow yourself to be and do nothing. I know recommending doing nothing when you want to get things done seems ridiculous but just maybe you need some downtime to reenergize your creative juices.

Here are a few tips to help you along:

Turn down the noise

Noise can be anything that is distracting you – too much family drama, too much social media, too much watching what everyone else is doing.

Decide what you want to do

Pick one thing of those thoughts and ideas. Go with your heart, intuition or close your eyes and point your finger.

Make time to do the thing

Plan it into your week, schedule it and then execute it i.e. act. If you don’t know how to do something, do some research and allow you to guide you along.

One of the things I suspect will happen is that your creativity is going to be on an upswing and you can’t help yourself but to focus on your own thing or many things.

I have written a blog post about How to get things done that are important to you, to help you along with narrowing it down some more once those ideas keep coming at you.

And all that matters then is to rinse and repeat time and again.
