Get Things Done! – The Action Machine
This system will allow you to easily take more action, and recapture lost hours in your day, lost days in your month, and even lost weeks in your year.
Over the past several years, I’ve taught this system to 1000’s of people, and the results they’ve shared with me (some of which you’ll see below) have been nothing short of spectacular!
There are two obstacles that are likely preventing you from being a massive action-taker right now: A lack of clarity, and a lack of motivation.
Without clarity about what you need to do, and reasons for doing them, your mind easily wanders, and your heart lacks any kind of motivation for taking meaningful action. As a result, distractions and procrastination take over and your ability to produce significant results becomes a fraction of your potential.
And, like you probably have, I spent a lot of time looking for a solution and experimenting with different tools, methods, and systems for helping me overcome those challenges. Then one day I stumbled across an article that described a simple action-taking system called ‘timeboxing.’
Almost immediately, I knew I had found the solution that I was looking for, because not only was timeboxing easy to understand and use, but it totally eliminated the two obstacles to taking action that we just talked about.
In other words, each action you need to take during the day represents a small ‘block’ of that day (a box, if you will). You determine how big of a box it is by how much time you set aside to accomplish it (a single day can consist of anything from just a few, to a dozen boxes). When you’re ready to take action, select a box, start a timer, and get to work!
