Don't Confuse Motion with Action

Motion is the process of changing the position of something. We have all been guilty of spending endless amounts of time doing work that creates a lot of motion but does not move us any closer to a goal. We get so busy moving that we don’t stop to think about what must be accomplished.
Break this busy cycle through action. Action is the process of doing something in order to achieve a goal. The are 3 specific Action Steps to help you achieve rather than just move – Plan, Reset, Review:

  • Plan Weekly – update your appointment calendar, capture deadlines, and schedule tasks that result in achieving your desired results
  • Reset Each Morning – review the day’s appointment schedule and your critical deadlines or tasks; decide on your three “must-do” actions for that day and do them
  • Review Each Evening – Before you stop for the day; review what was accomplished, note what wasn’t done, forward unfinished tasks and give yourself credit

Just because you are moving does not mean you are accomplishing something. Define success or the results you want to accomplish, and then Plan > Reset > Review.
