How do you put more progress in your week without adding additional hours?  Future pace your time.

True or False:  If you start the day with no objectives, no goals, and no hot priorities tied directly to your objectives, your day will still fill up with tasks and busy work.

True.

There is an alternate path.  Future pace your week by imagining exactly which steps toward achieving your major objectives you will accomplish by week’s end.  Reinforce the picture by imagining how great it will feel to leave at the end of the day Friday knowing that you have made real progress on your deliverables.

Open your calendar right now and insert 1 next action step for every major goal.

Added bonus:  Reserving time to work on what’s most important will give you the conviction you need to say no to some of the requests for your time that are coming your way.
