108: Setting a monthly focus

In this episode we discuss an approach to getting things done that might help you get more out of 2018 and finally complete some projects you’ve been trying to make time for by setting a monthly focus.

key takeaways

Setting a monthly focus forces you to prioritise your ideas. My choosing to move forward with a project you’re leaving room to make bigger improvements and get more done than if you were trying to move forward with all of your ideas at once. 

Know what your minimum amount of production is. What do you have to get done and how can you streamline it to allow room for extra work on a specific focus? 

Choose a monthly focus that aligns with your goals. Focus on one thing overall rather than one thing for each project. This does mean playing favorites with your projects! But know that getting ahead with one of them is better than making progress with none.
