Part 2 of What You Do at the Beginning of the Day and the End Determines What Happens During Your Day

Sep 4th, 2009Comments Off on Part 2 of What You Do at the Beginning of the Day and the End Determines What Happens During Your Day

Last time we talked about what happens at the beginning and the end of the day determining what happens in between. Today, we want to talk about the beginning, which is the most important part of your day. Your beginning actually started yesterday.

Notice sometimes when you start your work day, it tends to pick up from what you left the day before. This leads us to forget our yesterday functions because we tend to end our day abruptly.

 

“Begin at the Beginning”

–          When does your day begin…it began yesterday!

–          Time to shift your paradigm…Are you reading for this?!

–          How you prepared for today will determine how it begins

You need to be prepared for today, yesterday.

 

There is no set formula for everyone, however, there are steps everyone can take.

1.)    Make “one touch” decisions about tomorrow

2.)    Prepare for your meetings

3.)    Create a file to review (3 tabs) and take action on:

File-necessary materials

Read- necessary readings

Respond- things needing your response within 24 hours

Trash- unnecessary materials

4.)    Determine who you want to meet and talk with tomorrow

5.)    Visualize who, what, when, where, why, and how—regarding how tomorrow will go.

This is a great driving home exercise when you have left the office.
