“Act Now! A Daily Action Log for Achieving Your Goals in 90 Days by Peter Winiarski (Win Publishing, $14.95). When we get caught up in the events of the workday, we forget there’s a huge difference between activity and progress. Winiarski reminds us that progress couples good habits, planned action and inspired action (i.e. an AHA! moment) with a daily review of results. He provides a Daily Action Log one can use to track what’s been done. It allows you to compare what happened with what could/should have been done.
What are good habits? Visualizing goals, staying on-point, not letting emotion cloud perspective, thinking, exercise, etc., keep us pointed toward progress. Reacting to every phone call and the ping of an incoming email are not good habits because they destroy focus.
Relative to daily “planned action”, Winiarski uses the “Rule of 5”. Provide focus to each day by listing five high-priority things on which you’ll focus. It makes sense; if you are able to devote one hour to each, you’ll make progress. Plan the next day after you’ve evaluated the current day’s results. On your way to work, think about how you’re going to execute that day’s five actions.
Inspired action evolves from good habits and planned action. When you make time to really think about what if, and how, you engage your creativity. Use the Daily Action Log to capture thoughts as they occur. Doing so ensures they don’t get lost when shifting from one activity to another.
Relative to long-term goals, he advises breaking them down into 90-day increments. If you execute your five planned actions each day, you’ll have time to plan ahead.
Winiarski reminds us that busyness and business are not synonymous. Keeping the Daily Action Log reinforces focus.”
