My 3 Tips to Get a Fast Start to your Week

Hey Coach! 


In sports, the team that is really aggressive and sets the tone from the start is usually the one that ultimately wins the game.  (Yes, I know there are 100 factors that play into this but work with me here). 


Now I’m asking you, how are you starting your days and weeks?  


Are you being aggressive enough? Or are you starting slow and being too passive? 


I love the quote that “how you start something usually dictates how it’s going to turn out.”  


If you start well, it’s usually going to go well, but if you start wrong, it’s really hard. to course correct.   



Here are my top three tips on how you can start fast and set the tone for your week: 


Tip number 1 – Eat the frog:  

The idea of eat the frog (Brian Tracy) is to tackle your biggest, most unpleasant task of the day right away, rather than procrastinating and allowing it to loom over you all day.  


It may sound simple, but it’s a powerful tactic for increasing productivity and reducing stress.  


By getting the worst task out of the way early, you’ll have a sense of accomplishment and momentum that will carry you through the rest of the day.  


Plus, you’ll free up mental space to focus on other priorities.  


Tip number 2 – Eliminate Distractions:  


Distractions can easily take away precious moments of productivity and prevent you from moving faster through your tasks.  


Create a designated workspace that is free from any unnecessary objects that can compete for your attention. 


Turn off your phone notifications, close unnecessary tabs on your computer, and use noise-cancelling headphones or earplugs if necessary.  


It is going to be tough to make progress if your attention is getting pulled away by a million things.  


Tip number 3 – Use a shot clock (Parkinson’s Law): 


Parkinson’s law states that work expands to fill the time available for its completion.  


The more time you give yourself to complete a task, the more time it will take to finish it.  


Setting deadlines and time limits can improve productivity by creating a sense of urgency.  


You force yourself to focus and prioritize your tasks to complete them in the time allotted.  


It also encourages you to eliminate distractions and avoid procrastination.  


By setting realistic deadlines and limiting your time, you can not only improve your productivity but also reduce stress and increase your overall sense of accomplishment. 


Remember this – you control how you start your week!  


Start your days fast! Start strong to build momentum and energy to crush your week!


To your success!
