"Key of Lifestyle"

"You must design your own lifestyle. Great lifestyles

happen because the person planned it that way."

Streamlining your life

1. Commit to not leaving your office without writing down what you are going to do the next day.

This does two things; it helps set your priorities and focus for the next day, and it provides separation. When you write the list, put it down and leave it to the next day with the security of knowing you don't have to remember or obsess over it. Your list will be waiting.

2. Make a list of priorities in your life - in order - and place them where you can see them for the next two mornings.

On the second day, write a number grade (on a scale of 1-10) next to each priority, summing up how well you're doing accomplishing it. Then, ask the person closest to you to take the same list and mark a grade for each of your priorities.

3. Don't forget to celebrate checking things off your to-do list.

It's a lot of responsibility to hold yourself so accountable for what you do from day-to-day. When you do a great job following through, you set yourself apart in this world and build real balance between work and home. Make sure check off time is a fun time of celebration.
