How to Get More Done in Less Time - by Heather Dominick

Have you ever had the feeling of having so much to do that your head spins, your energy feels drained and all action just stands still?

Here's why: most of us have been taught to approach our tasks from only a head point of view. There's great productivity power in engaging your energy as a primary task-management tool.

Here's a step-by-step process that has you using your energy to get more results, more quickly:

1) Make a list of "To-Do Tasks" for the day

2) Survey your list and for each task register for yourself what your "energy hit" is on a scale of 1 - 10. For example:

Task: Place follow-up call to person I met networking
Hit: 2 = I'm dreading this!

3) Engage thoughts to "Amp-up Your Energy." What are you silently or secretly telling yourself about the task that has you feeling low energy about it and as a result avoiding it? What's an alternate thought/perspective that now has you feeling jazzed about the task? (You're more likely to do something you're excited about, right?)

4) Thoughts still stuck? Engage "Purposeful Movement." Again, most overwhelm comes from getting so caught in your head about what you think you "should", "have to" or "ought to" be doing. Taking just 5 minutes to step away and engage, some sort of physical movement (I use a small bouncy-ball almost everyday!) immediately creates a shift in your energy and opens you up to receive "Inspired Action" i.e. a thought that could never come to you while stuck in your head.

5) Keep track of the evidence of the inspired actions that come to you using this process. This keeps you from slipping back into the old habitual from your head only approach and gets you more excited so more happens more quickly.

Your EnergyRICH® Call To Action
My coach's request to you is to experiment with the EnergyRICH® list above for 1 week. Be open! Be willing to do it differently. Then, mark the evidence and check in about how you FEEL. Being in business for yourself is about results, but it's also about enjoying the journey!
