45 Days Left. Make Them Count!

45-days-left-make-them-count

Hey everyone!

I have just done a very powerful and timely Periscope today entitled ’45 Days Left, Make Them Count!’. Today is November 15th. There are still 45 more days left in 2016. We have 6 more weeks to get whatever you want done right now. Do not delay until 2017. Do it right now. Take full advantage of these remaining days to position yourself for a very strong 2017.  Even if you have finished all of your 2016 goals, use these last 45 days towards testing out your 2017. Remember time is the one commodity that you cannot get back. Once time is spent, it is spent. Watch the video below:

This Week in PCM : Urgent vs Important

Most people use urgent and important interchangeably because we are busy. As I have mentioned in a previous article, busyness is not productivity. Words have power and these two words have distinct meanings. Below are their respective definitions:

Urgent –  (of a state or situation) requiring immediate action or attention

Important –  of great significance or value, likely to have

As you have seen these two words have different meanings. What is important is not what is urgent; but, what is urgent is always what is important.

In the below diagram from

11062016-prioritymatrix

 

 

Here is the breakdown:

  • If it is urgent and important then do it now! Examples are these two are crises and emergencies. A water main break in your house is both urgent and important.

 

  • If it is urgent but not important then delegate Examples of delegating to others are errands. Let me break it down. You are a blogger who knows that social media strategy is critical towards spreading your blog’s content; however, scheduling all of your social media channels consumes a lot of time. Therefore, you save money and delegate this task a social media manager.

 

  • If it is not urgent but important then decide how you want to handle this. A way of deciding is to ask yourself whether or not to pursue this goal is ‘ will this goal put me in a greater long-term position?’ If the answer is yes then do it. Conversely, if the answer is no then drop it.

 

  • If it is not urgent and not important then delete it. Eliminate the mental, emotional and physical clutter that drains you. Removing the non-urgent, unimportant tasks give me more time and energy towards things that matter.

 

Knowing the difference between urgent and important and how to act upon these two situations will help you create, capitalize and maintain positive change in your personal and professional lives.
