“Law of Forced Efficiency = there is never enough time to do everything, but there is always enough time to do the most important thing.” Brian Tracy, Eat That Frog
Mark my words, if you practice this rule your life will change.
My observation is that every successful person makes their top priority their top priority. I have also found that most people do not prioritize their top priority.
I love this quote because it reminds me to make sure that I am intentionally focusing on the most important things in my life instead of just going with the flow every day.
Another buzz word for this concept is time blocking.
Time blocking means deliberately setting aside time to focus on your most important activity.
Besides Brian Tracy’s book Eat That Frog, another great resource to explore the law of forced efficiency is The ONE Thing by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan (click here for a summary). It is an encouraging book that will help you figure out your top priority and then give you the knowledge and tools to actually make it your top priority in your daily living.
If you’re not practicing the law of forced efficiency, you need to read Eat That Frog and The ONE Thing.
If you are timing blocking in your daily life, what are your tricks?
