When Dallas was younger, he was a keen martial arts student. After each fight, his coach would give him a Post-It note with three things on it that he needed to fix. These three points helped Dallas focus on what he needed to start working on. According to Dallas, he probably had a lot more than three things to work on, but the coach was adamant on only giving Dallas three at a time.
Why was this the case, and why did it work so well for Dallas?
If Dallas’s coach had given him 53 things to fix, chances are he wouldn’t have attempted to fix any of them. This same theory applies to a lot of things. If you give yourself too many things to do, chances are you won’t know where to start, and you’ll probably even feel totally overwhelmed. Instead, pick three things to focus on that you think are the most important. To hone in on those three things, ask the question: what is going to drive the biggest change?
Trying to do too much at one time is not good for anyone. Focusing on just three will help put a cap on your physical and mental energy.
When our clients come to us, we are not only helping them in choosing those three things to focus on, but they’re also saving time by outsourcing them to us. That means two things.
Some of you may not know this, but Michael actually has a second job. He is a ‘personal assistant’ to his two young children. And anyone with young children will know how hard it is to find extra time to get things done! Outsourcing is invaluable when it comes to your time, and wanting to spend it doing the things that actually matter to you.
If you’d like help with your financial planning, or advice on how to hone in on the top three things to get you ahead, give us a call to arrange a no-obligation meeting. They can easily be arranged via Zoom.
