In the last 24 hours

In the last 24 hours

In the last 24 hours, I learnt the power of focus.

Yesterday, looking at my to-do list app on my phone (I use Wunderlist by the way; it’s awesome), I saw a long list of things I had to do within the work day. It looked unrealistic to do everything yesterday. In truth, it was actually unrealistic to get those stuff done in 24 hours.

But in my customary attitude of trying to carry the whole world on my head, I opened my laptop and started tackling the deliverables…

“Send a proposal to the client who…”

And then I jumped to the next task…

“Reply Reni’s mail with the quotation he reque…”

And then I opened PowerPoint to do the quotation…

And then I remembered the next task…

“Call Tobi and request for admin…”

And then I grabbed my phone…

There was a text I was yet to reply…

“Reply Mr Chukwu’s text…”

 

And then 35 minutes passed.

And I had only sent 1 text message. What an absolute waste of time.

I’m sure you get the lesson here…

Follow One Course Until Successful.

Then move to the next one.
