Do you want a trick that will guarantee you get more things accomplished during your day or week?
It’s not a trick but a simple tactic that will guarantee you get a lot accomplished. You may not finish everything but you will be ahead of the game.
Set a Deadline
Without a deadline you will always feel like you have an unlimited amount of time to finish.
Quick personal example
I had been working on my 4th music CD for 3 years. It dragged on and on. It felt like a burden on my back for a few reasons. Long story, short, out of frustration and weariness of the process, I set a CD release date.
I had just 1 month to finish the recordings, 2 weeks to have it mastered and then 3 weeks to have it manufactured (including the artwork, etc). I got the boxes of CDs just days before the CD release party.
Had I not set a date I may still be working on it!
