One Step at a Time
Ideally, for every step we take, every decision we make, we have the big picture in mind. A goal that we aim for without any major detours. On the long road to achieving such goals, however, this is only half the battle. Without every single step on our journey with the necessary importance, we come to a standstill. The best map is of little use to us as long as we don’t set ourselves in motion.
The solution is simpler than you might fear: the good old to-do list. Not the kind where you can add a deadline to everything, invite your friends, and have a hundred other gimmicks at your disposal. This encourages procrastination at best and certainly does not increase your productivity. What this daily question offers you instead are actually two questions. One is about what you did today and the other is about what you want to get done tomorrow. That’s it. As simple as the input is, as extensive are the corresponding statistics. These are generated automatically without wasting your time and help you understand what exactly increases your productivity and what is bringing it down — you will be surprised.
