I have this little red book that goes with me everywhere. No, it is not a book filled with phone numbers of girls, that is another book :). This book holds all of my thoughts, ideas, and work. I would be completely lost without this book.
I am a big list person, checking things off gives me more satisfaction then actually completing the task. Everyday I put together my list of things I need to get done and review it about 4 times a day. This keeps me organized, focused, and motived to get my list done for the day.
Here is what a normal day looks like for me:
My little red book is my brain.
It forces me to get stuff done and not sit back and watch my twitter stream roll-in.
It makes me declare my goals for the day and accomplish them.
Plain and simple, it helps me deliver.
A huge challenge I think people face today is delivering something. It is like we have this idea that things will magically appear and all will be good. But after a while you have to get tired of sitting back and watching.
I think today is the day you start to deliver something. Pick one thing that you need to accomplish and get it done. Maybe it is for a side project you are working on. Maybe it is that hobby that you have wanted to start. It could be exercising, flossing your teeth, learning how to make a good cup of coffee, or simple just reading a book.
But you will never be able to accomplish anything without first figuring out how to get it done.
For me it is writing it down and checking it off.
