The Power Of Doing One Thing At a Time
There is a lot going on in our household. Our youngest son has completed his long walk around Britain, he's preparing to leave home, and we're busy doing all the many things that lead up to a wedding... he's getting married on the 31st July!
There is a LOT happening, lots of decisons to make, lots of things to get ready... all alongside running a business.
This season has been a stark reminder of how important it is to be more aware of what's going on and how I'm spending my time, check in with God throughout the day, and make sure I'm majoring on the major.
My prayer is that today's coaching moment will inspire you to become more aware, take focused action, and get things done...
ONE thing at a time
What do you have going on right now? Make a mental list of all the things you're doing, the important things and the not so important things... check your browser and your messages too. That little exercise can be eye opening!
It's rarely true that we don't have enough time to do all the things we need to do, it's often more that we distract ourselves by doing too many unnecessary things in the time we have.
Could it be that you're avoiding doing some things?
When we're avoiding doing things, we become good at busying ourselves with unnecessary things. If you're busy doing something else, there's no way you can do the thing you're supposed to be doing right now. So, we multitask, and do a lot of little things at once, and that creates the illusion of having so much to do that we can't possibly find time for anything else.
The problem with that is that we start to believe the illusion. When we start cutting out all the unnecessary things and focus on what really needs to be done, the truth comes into sharp focus, it becomes hard to avoid.
There's a simple solution to making sure that you get things done...
Focus only on what you need to be doing. Drop the distractions, close the browser windows, turn off the tv, step away from social media, and give yourself uninterrupted time to get stuck into the thing you really need to do.
When you shut off the distractions, you'll find it easier to get going with what really matters right now. And once you do, the weight will be lifted, you’ll gain momentum, and you'll be done in no time!
When I've had huge success, it's when I've focused, narrowed my concentration to just ONE thing, and kept going until it was done.
Try checking in with God at various times during the day and asking, "What's the most important thing for me to do right now Lord?"
"Be like a stamp – stick to ONE thing until you get there!" Josh Billings
The other thing that will help a LOT is to equip yourself with coaching strategies and develop a coaching mindset that will
