“Eliminate everything that is a distraction to you”
The next time you find your mind wandering off from your priorities, realize that they are a distraction that is pulling you away from your goals.
Try to really focus on what matters the most to you. It very easy to start the day with good intentions that for one reason or another get out of hand and before you know it the day is gone. Realize that something can seem good, but ultimately isn’t really all that important.
So what is the first thing you should do? Your #1 priority whether that be the gym or getting right down to work.
Getting up early is not enough!
When you put your top priorities first it just makes life easier to get them out of the way. By having them at the top of your list you fill your time up with only your best most productive activities even if you only do 1 or 2 things each day.
Every step in the right direction is a step towards your dreams.
I find that when I get up early and immediately take the dog for a walk, I am able to organize my thoughts and focus on the tasks at hand for the day. By taking the time to organize my thoughts I am able to put my priorities in order. Once in order, I can make sure that each step is a step in the right direction.
