Forecast vs. Results: How To Close The Gap

It's spring here in Seattle and that means... it's time to get super effective at work so that I can make time to enjoy the summer weather. You too?

Increasing effectiveness means closing the gap between forecasted results and actual results. How do you do this? 

First, you need to know your enemy....
 

The nemesis of effectiveness is multi-tasking.  It's really easy to find yourself overwhelmed and unsatisfied when you try to get everything done. What if everything is never done? In fact, what the heck is everything anyway? It's NOT(a)thing you can do. 
 

Second, you need to focus.

Effectiveness comes from focusing on one thing at at time and that includes spending time on the big picture. In this case: Creating more free time to enjoy the summer without sacrificing my goals. 

As I mention in Performance: How To Maximize Your Power To Produce Results, the fastest way to achieve any goal is to track your actions. The process of figuring out what actions you can track naturally focuses your attention on what you can and cannot control. What you can control can be improved. If you try to control what you can't, then you'll be full of anxiety and no fun to hang out with this summer.
