I had a great moment yesterday with a relatively new client. We were talking about his To Do List and scheduling. I pointed something out by using myself as an example. I’m currently writing a book. By “currently” I mean that I’ve written about one third of it during one week in the late winter and haven’t had the time and/or focus to work on it since. I mentioned to the client that I have “work on book” on my To Do List, which is way to vague and that what I need to do is take a look at where I left off and break it down into specific goals on my list. To which he responded that I should put that step on my list. He was 100% correct. That is a change I will make today and maybe even get that thing done because it is now accounted for and actionable.
