Every day, day after day, I pursue five things that help move me forward in my dreams and goals. I call it my Daily Five. These are five identical things that automatically pre-populate my to-do list every day.
How many priorities do you have every day? Do you even have any priorities? If you have no priorities than you are like a leaf on a fall day, floating around aimlessly, without direction.
I have found that the magic number of priorities most of the successful individuals in my study were able to tackle is between 3-5 priorities. 3-5 is the magic number. Less than 3 and you won’t get very far on your dreams and goals. More than 5 and you will likely get overwhelmed. Start creating your top 3-5 priorities and automate them on a daily to-do list. The to-do list serves as your accountability partner; your external motivation to get done what you need to get done. Don’t be a leaf on a fall day.
