I am not sure. I can just share one thing:
In 1987, I was still working as an architect, I participated in a program called "More Time Workshop"
It was about 15 hours long. We learned very simple time and results management methods... so that wasn't what made the difference.
What made the difference, and I'll tell you in detail, in a minute, what the difference was... so what made the difference is that we had to promise to do everything we learned for 30 days, no days off...
It was simple: you had a short term, a middle range, and a long range goal. You needed to look at them every day and then create 5-7 actions for the day. Priorotize them, and then schedule them into your calendar.
At the end of the day go over your actions and see if you have done them or not. If not, move them to the next day, and schedule them.
Once a week look at a long list of "I always wanted to do this" items.
I found that after 30 days it was a no brainer. It did take an extra hour on my schedule to do this stuff, but
- I slept better than ever
- I had more energy and enthusiasm than ever before
- Things got done.
What I invented for myself at the course was to become a magazine publisher. It was completely outside of my reach... By the end of 1988 I was a magazine publisher, and I published my publication for 11 years with great success, and I loved it. I got this result because I had a method to my life.
A 100-day challenge can do miracles, this is why I signed up to the 100-day challenge...
You can join me in it, if you want, you can do so till September 30. Here is the link:
If you sign up and email me, we could become a support group for each other... I can definitely help you!
