“If you concentrate on small, manageable steps you can cross unimaginable distances.”
- Shaun Hick
This week’s focus is part of the main equation of my body of work, with PlanDoTrack which is Daily Steps + Consistent Action = Momentum.
What are the daily steps you want, and need, to be undertaking around major projects? What are the things you want to be doing to generate some momentum and energy of its own?
This links back to Week 43 and the Weekly Planning Hack of Consistent Action in 15 minutes a day. You can read that here.
While I was doing a search through some of my older Teams365 blog posts, a daily blog I started around leadership and teamwork issues back in 2014, I came across this post from 2014 about the importance of working in 15 minute blocks:
It's often said that when you experience writers block to just sit down and aim to write for 15 minutes. Many writers swear that this gets them going and out of the block.
Today's check it off tip is an encouragement to chunk things down to 15-minute blocks, so they are more manageable. Perhaps your office is already buried in files and paperwork, or your to do list of small things is already several pages long.
This week experiment with chunking things in 15 minute blocks and seeing what you are able to check off the list!
Adopting the mindset of consistent action through daily steps helps us to chunk down tasks. When things are busy and perhaps ever changing, starting to move projects forward in a way where we are focusing on daily steps in smaller chunks helps keeps things moving. If larger projects are put on hold until there are larger periods of time they may not get done.
To experiment with this, think about the things that can be done more quickly or in an adjusted way?
