Podcast 011: Theme Your Work Week – Monday – Focus on Financials

Focus on Financials…Monday’s Theme

I am on the same journey and quest to become a Remarkable Retailer that you are on…and have tried many different approaches to get organized once and for all! This is an ongoing quest and although I wish I could say that I have conquered all when it comes to being the most productive retailer on the planet… well, let’s just say that I have never been nominated for that award!

Theme Your Work Week Monday – Financials

Theming Your Work Week

I listen to many podcasts, read books relentlessly, and love to listen to speakers teach about how to get more done in the time that we are all allotted, and kept hearing various speakers talk about Block Scheduling or Theming Your Work Week.  Several months ago, I took a few minutes and wrote out a list of the essential things that only I could do to push our business forward. This became the focus for the “Themes” for each of my work days.  I will say, that although not perfect, it has been extremely helpful to keep me focused on getting the most important work done each day! By blocking out units of time and “spending” that time wisely, you absolutely WILL get more done in a day!

The road to comfort is crowded and it rarely gets you there. Ironically, it’s those who seek out discomfort that are able to make a difference and find their footing.

The difference between great people and everyone else is that great people create their lives actively, while everyone else is created by their lives, passively waiting to see where life takes them next. The difference between the two is living fully and just existing.
