Although todays encore episode primarily focuses on the strategies I use daily to escape procrastination. I’ve also got a slightly different angle to share before we get rolling. Courtesy of an interview I heard with Rory Vaden, author of the book: Procrastinate on Purpose.
The concept is to focus today on doing the things that will give you time tomorrow.
So, as Rory puts it multiplying rather than managing time.
Time multiplying sounds pretty hugely appealing right?
The challenge is that it involves procrastinating with volition on things that may be important or urgent in favour of those things that are significant. The things that eat a bit of time today and give you time tomorrow. And more time next week. And even more time next month.
In business this might be the task you don’t just power on through today. That you instead create a standard operating system for and teach someone else to do. It’s going to take several times as long today and then you don’t need to do it ever again.
In the body gain game, this might be the weekly shopping delivery. Those basics you need every week that you set up today. And then you don’t need to do almost (!) ever again.
