Consider that every actionable thought falls into one of the following:
NOW: It's where my attention is.
NEXT: It's next in line in my queue.
LATER: It's a scheduled event
LIKELY (>50%): It's something I need to schedule time for. AKA Someday Maybe tasks.
UNLIKELY (<50%): I might be interested, but I'm not willing to commit to it.
NO COMMIT: It's not something I am able to do right now.
I am heading into my 2nd 10 day sprint with great confidence because I achieved my 10 day goals previously.
Reflecting on what worked well, and what could be improved.
Using pomodoro and pre-allocating 'prime time' (8am-11am) to my most important opportunities.
Second, the opportunities page @InSightly helped me see that while I have many clients, I have a more manageable list of opportunities related to those clients. Instead of focusing on specific clients, I am focusing on opportunities which are really solutions. This upcoming week, I want to create a PubWriter page for each solution (aka opportunity) along with a buy button and form for client to provide what we need. This is a vital step towards productizing my services.
But I think a daily release notes page for my team would be helpful. That Feedburner page is my daily 'Release Notes' if you think about it. Imagine if EVERYTHING I did was posted to AuthorDock. It would automatically update that page!!! Strive for this.
Creating room for improvement
When you measure what matters, what you measure matters more.
What I said NO to
This is a critical success to celebrate... saying no to the activities and people who are not serving me
Check-in with 10 prior clients - see 13 week A-to-Z
Introduce AuthorDock and PubWriter to 1 new author per day
After I set for 30 minutes (a pomodoro), I will stand up (I am using my time timer which has a repeating 30 minute alert)
After I get a client request, I will log it into AD (existing client) or Insightly (new client) (note this also addresses my inbox issue of leaving every message in my inbox!)
After I wrap up for the workday, I will spend 5 minutes to clean up my office and prepare my 100day notebook for tomorrow (this addresses a long-standing issue I've had of not being organized and losing focus)
