I’ve arrived at what I hope is the working model of my new system. What can I tell you about it at this stage?
Mainly that it’s intended to be an improvement on 5T in ease of use, flexibility and lack of resistance.
I’m going to test it out for a full 7-day week, starting today (Monday). During this time I’m going to make no changes to it whatsoever.
There are certain things which I will specifically want to be able to achieve by using it.
Daily blog post
Daily maintenance of zero inbox for email, paper, Facebook, Evernote, etc
Visit the gym at least twice
Go for a minimum 3-mile walk on four out of the five days I don’t go to the gym (allowing one day’s rest)
Issue my newsletter
Write marketing plan for local association [first draft]
Write article for association’s magazine, plus photos
Daily book reading
Do the monthly tax claim for local charity
Sort the remaining two drawers in my office
Dispose of one year’s business vouchers, statements, etc, kept for six years according to Inland Revenue policy
Draft outline for new book and discuss it with my agent
And basically keep up to date with everything else
I’ll keep you posted!
I didn’t finish the testing because I got some better ideas for the system. Nevertheless I managed a good number of the items on the list. I’ve crossed out the ones I succeeded in doing.
