Don’t let your ideas be ideas.
Writing out ideas or plans in a journal feels like productivity. It feels like we're getting things done. But if those ideas stay ideas, the activity is the exact opposite of productive: it's time wasting.
'Organized' is not synonymous with 'productive'.
You can have colour-coded folders and journals and planners filled to the brim, but unless action takes place, you're not actually progressing.
My friend Ashley Shapiro recently introduced me to a mashup word she coined: Organisaction.
Taking action during organisation.
Don't write a list of everything that needs to get done today.
Schedule the tasks into your calendar.
Set an actual meeting.
Whatever you do, get the ball rolling in the real world. Don’t let your ideas be ideas.
