It’s easy to get lost in the muck as the day goes on..
Seemingly simple tasks can take you down a rabbit hole if you aren't clear on the order of the day. Really successful people establish a clear picture of what needs their attention.
Each morning, they determine what is critical for them to handle and what can be successfully delegated to others. Make a list of those critical items that you must do now, and find ways to move everything else aside.
Not every event is as it seems.
Sometimes the most frustrating failure can actually be the beginning of the greatest success--but only if you recognize the difference. Really successful people make very few assumptions about events.
They consider each occurrence on its own merit and then determine the many branches of possibility. Each morning, they review the days leading up and game out the various probabilities ahead.
Spend a little time getting out of your patterns to consider what happens if you think a different way.
