Becky and Diana discuss how to take focus to the next level and maintain it for the duration of a project or completion of a goal.

  • Diana uses visual reminders, Becky uses technology. What works best for you?
  • One of Becky’s favorite tools is Nozbe, based on David Allen’s book Getting Things Done. It gives her a way to do a brain dump, then organize all the items from the dump and organize them.
  • You can also accomplish brain dumps using paper files.
  • Reacting to things as they come makes it hard to stay on track and take action.
  • Give yourself permission to create the system you need based on your life as it is now.
  • Margin in your schedule creates open space so you can be present for your life and work.
  • Instead of continuously looking for new ways to do things, first master what you have started.
  • Accountability is key for staying on track, but choose your accountability partners wisely.
  • Accountability builds trust = Success.
  • Using the correct tools is vital to staying on track.
  • Knowing what works for you not only makes you more productive, it also builds your self-esteem by giving you a way to track your accomplishments.
  • Evernote is a great tool to use with many different systems because it is flexible.
  • You can schedule your tech time to create boundaries that help you stay on track.

The best way to stay on track is to find the system that works best for you.
