How To Get More Done

business-idea-plan-actionI was looking through my journal and came across an entry I made quite some time ago. At the time I was feeling as if my goals were getting away from me. I just didn’t seem to be getting the results I wanted, and quite frankly I was feeling down about it.

I decided to ask myself some questions about why I wasn’t getting the job done, and what I could change. Of course this led to some good quality answers that I decided to proceed with from that day. I needed to create some new habits.
