Do you ever get into one of those loops where you start out to do one thing but when you get there, some other task looms large in front of you, so you momentarily forget the first thing and tackle that second thing and then in the middle of that second thing a third thing presses its way into your path, demanding attention. How do you navigate it without ending up buried in deep occupation with the tenth thing, now on the trivial level, instead of the first?
You write down the second, third and fourth things, and continue doing the first! Yup, that's it. This replaces domestic insanity with measured tread.
Research shows that if a person, be they a corporation president or the humble janitor, or the "pulled in every direction" housewife, continues with the highest thing on their priority list and keeps it the highest thing, such a person makes remarkable significant progress in life. Having everyone write down their highest 3 goals each day, keeping them visible and prominent, turned a struggling company into a business dynamo. Their bottom-line profits broke all their previous records. For the housewife? It turns chaos into cheerful calm.
