“Don’t confuse activity with achievement” – John Wooden
Have you ever said the following to yourself?
“What happened to my day? I was busy but got nothing done.”
This is the trap John Wooden was referring to. Just because we are busy doing things, it does not mean we are actually accomplishing anything. We’ve all been there. Busy all day, putting out fires, responding to requests and when the day ends, nothing we actually wanted to get done was accomplished.
Unfortunately, many times those other distractions end up costing you money, time and added stress you simply don’t need. In order to achieve more, you need to have strategies to help you get focused on what you really need to get done and avoid overwhelm.
Here are 11 hacks to help you achieve more and stress less. Of course, adapt this to your own environment and situation.
