The Equilibrium Recipe
Want to get more done with less stress?
When setting your weekly goals, choose your most important task this week, and make sure it takes about 5 hours to complete
When setting your daily goals, use the TODAY’S BIG 3 section to identify one goal for the day; make sure it takes about 1 hour to complete
Commit to completing your one daily goal, and open up the rest of your time for other things in life
Tip: Remember to keep track of what you spend your time on; it says a lot about your life. If you decide to continue working, that’s great too!
Why This Recipe works
Setting a single 1-hr goal a day serves multiple functions—
1) Retrain your brain for focus: When you set one simple goal, it retrains your mind to concentrate fully on your task. This helps combat our busy, digital baseline of multitasking and distraction
2) Start easy, ease your way in: When you set simple and achievable tasks, it combats stress and gives you clarity into how much time is spent on work. It also helps to create flow and confidence for more wins in your day
3) Having more you time: Freeing up the rest of your time for other things in life gives you tons of perspective into who you wish to be and what kind of life you wish to lead. You may just find patterns that you didn’t expect
Your turn! What are you opening up time for today?
