In a recent coaching session with Jon, a very successful client, we discussed best practices in daily planning. At the end of each day, it’s worthwhile to consider how effective you were that day in planning and execution. One of the reasons Jon is so successful is that he plans and executes extremely well.
In his book Leading An Inspired Life, Jim Rohn stated:
“Failure is not a cataclysmic event. It is not generally the result of one major incident, but rather of a long list of accumulated little failings. The danger is looking at an undisciplined day and concluding that no great harm has been done… repeating today’s small failures can easily turn your life into a major disaster.”
Planning and execution is paramount to success in life and business.
Frequent review, and adjustment based on your review, is paramount to success in planning and execution.
Here are 5 questions you should ask yourself at the end of each day that can help you become better at planning and execution the following day:
1) Overall, how well did you plan for the day?
2) How did you manage interruptions?
3) How much of what you planned to do got done?
4) How can you improve your planning and execution?
5) What should you do now to prepare for tomorrow?
Your response to these questions can have an amazing impact on your life and business.
Finish each day strong!
