The importance of finding a rhythm in order to achieve one's goals cannot be overlooked or undervalued. Having a great rhythm means committing to certain tasks every day, rather than adhering to a strict schedule. Here are three key components to establish a Great Rhythm that will help you accomplish your goals faster.
Exercise: The importance of exercising regularly proves to have many benefits including improved memory, brain function, weight control, heart health, quality of sleep, and reduced anxiety and depression. As leaders, it's important for us to take care of ourselves so that we can better care for others. Its important for us to find a rhythm for exercise, whether that means committing to a certain time of day or finding whatever time works best for one's schedule.
Focus: Having a laser like focus on one's goals is essential for success. Set specific goals and then break them down into smaller, manageable tasks. Try to limit multitasking as much as possible. It's better to focus on one task at a time in order to maximize productivity and efficiency than to have "too many irons in the fire". Find a time of day when you feel that you are the most focused and begin using that time to tackle important tasks.
Work: Nothing special here. Hard work and perseverance. Start to develop a work ethic and commit to a daily routine of deep work. When finding a rhythm for work, whether that means committing to specific times of day or simply making sure to accomplish certain tasks every day, make sure that you DO IT. Watch out for procrastination. It's better to tackle difficult tasks head-on rather than putting them off and letting them turn from tasks into problems.
