Thank God it’s Monday!™ Is your brain like a pin ball machine? The lever is pulled back then the ball goes, bing, bing, bing, bing, and bounces wildly along. It looks like, “Oh, I better finish that report. No, no, stop that, I need to get ready for the sales meeting. Hey, I never called Jack back. What’s his number? Hang on, hang on. I can’t forget to stop on the way home for bread.”

Yep, you know that brain. We all have it. But some people know how to tame the monkeys in their brains better than others.

Start your day by looking at your quarterly plan and ask yourself, “What is the highest and best use of my time today?” Then make your list and order it. When you start on the first, and are distracted, immediately go back to the first and finish it off before moving to number two on your list.

Focus, Focus, Focus.

Have a great Monday!
