Every idea I have, it gets written down no matter where I am. Store it in your phone, write it in on the back of a sheet of paper, or even write it on your arm. If your need to quickly get an idea out of your head, voice record yourself from your smart phone. Start writing/documenting things down, let your creativity go crazy. Write it down so it doesn’t haunt you while you are trying to work on something else. Ideas are cool, but staying focus is what really brings results. Focus will provide results greater than you imagined. If you are focused and really reading, studying, practicing on your ideas, you will master them. It took me many years to realize that I can’t do it all. I am still trying to realize that actually.
However, I do realize you only get out, what you put in. That’s for everything in life.
- Plan what you want to Do
- Create a deadline and set milestones for your project
- Tell someone close to you about it so you can have an accountability partner
- Start working on it ASAP
- Compete with yourself in making more progress than the last day
- Even when you think you are near it’s completion, find many ways to make your project better
- Enjoy the fruits of your labor!!!
So plan a date to work on your next project! By the time you are ready to work on it, I’m sure you will have hundreds of sticky notes by then. Don’t forget about it, put an alarm in your phone that will remind you of it! Time is important!
I use Trello.com as my main project management tool, you can also supporting mobile apps for it.
There are many tools to help you with managing your time, if you don’t think you need it, notice how do you spend most of your time during your normal day. If your time is spent well, maybe you don’t need any external help, however if you feel alot of time has been used wrongly, it’s time for a life tweak.
We are all given 24 hours of the day, some people just use them better!
