When you’re working on large goals, days can easily blend together. Instead of thinking about what needs to happen today, you’re focusing on what needs to get done this week, month, or quarter. But, don’t lose sight of what’s in front of you: one day of work.
By starting each day right, you’re more likely to do the work that leads to achievement of those bigger goals. When you begin your day, pause and ask yourself whether you are ready for what is to come.
Are you prepared for all your meetings?
Do you know what work you need to accomplish?
What risks can you anticipate and prepare for?
Answering these questions will help you make the most of each day and set you up for success in the long term.
