I've been asking clients, colleagues, and friends what time management tips they use to make them get more done in the limited amount of time we all have. What I've heard is a mix of managing your time and procrastination.
We all like Shiny Objects.
We're attracted to them. Like moths to a flame. Whenever a new product, idea, solution, or strategy comes along, we sometimes catch ourselves getting distracted and focusing a lot of our efforts towards our Shiny Object. We want to get our Shiny Object and place it into our Shiny Object Repository.
What one thing are you procrastinating on right now? What are you putting off? Procrastination is a dirty word in my office.
Are you paying ATTENTION? Are you PRESENT when you work? Do you solve PROBLEMS? If you say 'No' to any of these areas, you probably have Career ADD.

Wonder why you don't get certain things accomplished? Why you hit the same obstacles every time?
