Don’t listen to the other voices

Please do not disturb board

Last week I talked about each of the jobs on your to-do list having a voice.

They still do.

So, when you choose a job from your list to do next, you need to ignore the voices of the other tasks that complain about not being picked. And boy, can they complain!

Can you do that? Can you focus on the task you decided to do?

The word ‘decide’ has its origin in the Latin ‘to cut off’. Can you cut off the distractions of the other tasks and focus on the one?

You will get more done when you don’t listen to the other voices.

Here is one way to do this using the burst technique.

My best wishes, Paul
