How to Get Overwhelming Things Done
Today while chatting to a blogger they told me that they wanted to write an eBook but didn't have time and felt completely overwhelmed by the task.
I share this:
1. Identify what you want to achieve
2. Allocate 15 minutes a day to it
3. Over the next year you will will spend 91 hours on your task
I know it is overly simplistic but it's perhaps the best thing I've done to tackle overwhelming tasks that I don't have time for.
PS: still don't have time? How about adding up the time you watch TV... play Farmville... stuff around on Facebook... waste time online shopping or do other mindless activities (insert your vice here.... you know what I'm talking about).
I once read that the average adult watches 2 hours of TV per day. If that's you that means over the next year you'll actually watch over 30 DAYS of TV. Yep - that's a whole month of TV watched per year!
Not everyone wastes their time on TV but I suspect if you do a little analysis of how you spend your time each day you'll be able to trip 15 minutes or so from at least one area of your life - I know I can!
