I’m pretty sure that many of us not only think we can do it all but that we must do it all. My guess is that’s why we often go to bed frustrated, guilty, and already behind for tomorrow.
Can I set the record straight?
First, you don’t have to do it all.
Second, you don’t want to do it all.
Third, you can’t do it all.
The sooner you and I accept these basic truths the sooner we can make the move to figuring out what truly matters and choosing what I will do of all the things I could do. You are in control. You have a choice.
Not all things are equally important. The key to productivity is not how much you do. The key is to do the things that help most in achieving your goals, objectives and desired outcomes.
