How many of you are like me and often feel like we have to do everything as we build our florist businesses? You gotta hustle and show up every morning! Our days become filled with a list of to do's that runs a mile long. Well, I have been listening to Jay Papasan's audiobook, The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results. It's been great and has me shifting my thoughts on how I approach my day and even week.
What does he mean to have your ONE thing? It's Your Number #1 priority. It's the one thing or FIRST thing you should be doing. We may have lots of priorities; i.e. at work or at home, etc, but at any given point and time though, we can only have one true priority. And we all know that we need to be present on your most important priority.
How many of you have a To-Do List? You either keep it on a notepad or on your phone. It's really just a survival list that we have to get through in a day or maybe a week. I know mine can be pretty comprehensive, which is good and bad because it becomes a bit tyrannical, right? Can I get an AMEN here? Do you find yourself a slave to that list?
Have you ever heard of the Pareto Principle? It's the 80/20 rule where 20% of the work we do provides about 80% of our results. This applies to the Success List.
Well, how about switching to a Success List instead of To-Do List? Do you find yourself a slave to the To-Do list? What steps do you need to take to turn your to-do list into a Success list? It will only take you about 3 minutes!
