reactionary workflow

xmaking-ideas-happenI learned a new term today: reactionary workflow.

Every time you stop what you’re doing so you can answer an email or a text, you’re reacting to someone else’s needs.

Most of us spend our days reacting to circumstances around ourselves, instead of moving forward the projects that are important to us.

Scott Belsky, author of Making Ideas Happen, encourages readers to schedule time for the work you want to accomplish. Otherwise, you’re constantly in reaction mode and going home with that “what did I do today?” feeling.

Find a place to keep track of the actions you want to take so you can follow through on them. It doesn’t need to be fancy, just functional.

Stop reacting and start acting in your own best interest. You’ll get more done without working longer.
