The Truth About Getting More Done

The Truth About Getting More Done

There’s so much I want to get done – in my personal life and career – if I only had the time.  What about you?

According to Mark Fritz, the statement I just made is a result of seriously flawed thinking.

Fritz, author of The Truth About Getting More Done, says that the problem is not with the amount of time that we have. Because all of us have the same amount of time, don’t we?

The problem lies in what we do with the time we have.

Our lack of achievement in getting done the things we want to get done, is not really a time problem, but a focus problem.  Fritz says:

“Without clarity and focus, you will never achieve all that you can…”

It’s a point that successful people really understand, Fritz says.  For them, the goal is not just getting things done, but getting the right things done.

Five Key Factors in Getting More Done

From The Truth About Getting More Done, here are 5 key factors to getting not just more things done, but the right things done:

  1. Success – Knowing what you want provides the reason behind what you want to get done.
  2. Thought – All action begins in our thoughts first, so thinking is a great way to use your time.
  3. Discipline – You get things done by disciplining yourself to do what you know you should.
  4. Teamwork – No one achieves success and gets the right things done without the help of others.
  5. Growth – The more you grow, the more experience you gain to focus on the right things.

The truth about getting things done, then, is not about managing your time.  It’s about managing the focus of how you use your time, and having the discipline to do what needs to be done.

What are the top things you need to get done this week?  Are you as focused and disciplined as you need to be in order to accomplish them?
