3. Learn To Say No
As you travel the globe, there will be countless chances to try new things. And while I'm all for diving deep into the local culture and going on all these exciting trips, there are times when you have to put your foot down. Maybe you want to see that traditional dance tonight, but there's an urgent deadline coming. It's important to balance work and play. Let them know about your commitments if you're with friends or fellow travelers. They need to know that work is one of your priorities. While traveling, there are some activities you'll be more excited about than others. Pick the ones you really want to do and have fun. But we don't have to d everything, if there's something you could skip without regretting it, there is no need to do it. Use it for work and go on the trips you really want to do.
Remember, it's alright to say "no" now and then. You are your own boss, and you need to learn to tell yourself and others "no" when necessary.
4. End-Of-Day Priority Checklist
Every night, no matter where I am, I make it a point to note down the must-dos for the next day. I order the task on the list from most important to least important. This simple list keeps me grounded and gives me a direction for the next day. Spending much of my time as I do on the computer means I need to assure I take breaks from emf (electromagnetic field) exposure. When I wake up, I’m refreshed, regardless of the time zone or place, and I know exactly where to start. Trust me; it's like having a roadmap for your day. Checklists are simple but powerful and take less than 2 minutes to create.
5. Know Your 'Why'
Staying productive is way easier when you know why you are working. If you have a strong "why" you will figure out any "how". In those challenging moments when your motivation's running low, always remember your primary driving force. For me, it's to free my family from debt. Knowing this pushes me to work even when I'm surrounded by distractions. Find your 'why,' and you'll find your focus.
