The brain is amazing. When a to-do list is created, as we're writing, the brain sends signals to relevant parts that state, "These things need to get done." This happens because you have visual and kinetic focus on the listed tasks. If you're like me, you have visual, auditory AND kinetic focus because I say the tasks aloud as I write them. The more parts of you that are involved in something, the more memory you'll have of that thing.
ACTION STEPS FOR SUCCESS:
Keep a daily calendar even if you're an employee and not self-employed.
Write it out before going to bed each night.
Assess your productivity at the end of each week. Determine if you're working toward what you really want in life.
Make adjustments as necessary.
If you're not experiencing more successes than failures, schedule a call.
