I was talking to a good friend last night about his two boys — his kids are several years older than my little three. In particular we were comparing and contrasting the way the two approach school, homework, sports, and…time management.
One tidbit really rang true for me, and I think it will for most people: the realization (reminder!) that focus is the key to productivity.
My buddy was telling me how his younger son typically will start doing his home work while he’s in the backseat on the drive home after school. Lots of times, by the time they’re home, he’s finished (or nearly so). Ridiculously productive kid.
FOCUS IS THE KEY TO PRODUCTIVITY.
Pick your most important task, and DO IT. The pick another, and DO IT. And another, and…wait for it…and DO IT.
I’m going to be like my buddy’s ten year old today. Give it a try. You’ll be glad you did.
