Transcript of Untitled Prezi

At the end or beginning of each week, sit down and think about what you want to accomplish for the upcoming week. Ask yourself, “What are the most important things I need to do this week?” I call these your big rocks. They are sort of like mini goals and should be tied into your mission statement and longer-term goals. Habit 3 Description Packing More Into Your Life Pick Up A Planner Adapt Daily The Comfort Zone Courage Zone Have you ever packed a suitcase and noticed how much more you can fit inside when you neatly fold and organize your clothes instead of just throwing them in? It’s really quite surprising. The same goes for your life. The better you organize yourself, the more you’ll be able to pack in—more time for family and friends, more time for school, more time for yourself, more time for your first things. With your weekly plan in place, adapt each day as needed. Putting your first things first takes courage and will often cause you to stretch outside your comfort zone. Take a peek at the Courage and Comfort Zone diagram. Habit 3, Put First Things First, can help. It’s all about learning to prioritize and manage your time so that your first things come first, not last. But there’s more to this habit than just time management. Putting first things first also deals with learning to overcome your fears and being strong during hard moments. Put First Things First Highly recommend using a planner of some sort that has a calendar and space to write down appointments,assignments, to-do lists, and goals. Plan Weekly Have you ever seen the big-rock experiment? You get a bucket and fill it half full of small pebbles. You then try to put several big rocks in the bucket, on top of the pebbles. But they don’t all fit. So you empty the bucket and start over. This time you put the big rocks in the bucket first, followed by the pebbles. The pebbles neatly fill in the spaces around the big rocks. This time it all fits! The difference is the order in which the rocks and pebbles were placed in the bucket. If you put the pebbles in first, the big rocks don’t all fit. But if you put the big rocks in first, everything fits, big rocks and pebbles. Big rocks represent your most important things. Pebbles represent all the little everyday things that suck up your time, such as chores, busy work, phone calls, and interruptions. The moral of the story is, if you don’t schedule your big rocks in first, they won’t get done. THE OTHER HALF Time management isn’t all there is to Habit 3. It’s only half of it. The other half is learning to overcome fear and peer pressure. It takes courage and guts to stay true to your first things, like your
values and standards, when the pressure is on. Your comfort zone represents things you’re familiar with, places you know, friends you’re at ease with, activities you enjoy doing. Your comfort zone is risk free. Step 1 Identify Your Big Rocks. At the end or beginning of each week, sit down and think about what you want to accomplish for the upcoming week. Ask yourself, “What are the most important things I need to do this week?” I call these your big rocks. They are sort of like mini goals and should be tied into your mission statement and longer-term goals Step 2 During your weekly planning, block out time for your big rocks by booking them in your planner. For example, you might decide that the best time to get started on your history report is Tuesday night and the best time to call your grandma is Sunday afternoon. Now block out those times. It’s like making a reservation. If your big rock such as “give out three compliments each day this week” doesn’t have a specific time attached to it, write it somewhere in your planner where it can be seen.
If you block out time
for your big rocks first, the other everyday activities will fit in as well. And even if they don’t, who cares? You’d rather push aside pebbles than big rocks. Step 3 Once you have your big rocks booked, schedule in all of your other little to-dos, daily tasks, and appointments. Here’s where the pebbles go. You may also want to look ahead on your calendar and record upcoming events and activities, like a vacation, concert, or birthday. On the other hand, things like making new friends, speaking before a large audience, or sticking up for your values makes your hair stand on end.Everything that makes us feel uncomfortable is found here. In this territory waits uncertainty, pressure, change, the possibility of failure. But it’s also the place to go for opportunity and the only your comfort zone. That’s for sure.
