I probably know lots of the excuses in the book of Why I Haven’t Got Things Done.
I’m a working mum with two teenagers, two hourly paid teaching jobs in different places (with a supply job during the holidays in yet another direction), preparation and marking for 20 individual students and two very different adult classes, a small MLM home business, an elderly relative living nearby … etc etc.
I know that I am not the only one in this situation, but sometimes – oh it is so difficult to find the time or motivation to get going and just do something!
Although I knew what the answer would be when I asked the question “what can I do when I am so busy?”, Alex Jeffreys’ reply was “work smart for an hour each day”.
I suppose that I didn’t want to hear it, but I realised that I knew this was true and now is the time to act on it. So I’ve set my timer for an hour, closed the door and am concentrating on the matter in hand.
So after restarting this blog yesterday I took out a copy of Gary Simpson’s Time in Motion Action Planner and began filling in the details for yesterday.
Gary is another of the students from Alex Jeffreys’ first coaching course and always gives so much great value. He is working on other things at the moment, but if you go over to his blog and scroll about half way down the page, you will find a place to download this Action Planner. I would highly recommend it as Tool #1 in overcoming the excuse making.
But you have to use it!
I am and I’ll let you know how it helps me. Please tell me what you need to help you move forward too – I would love to hear.
