Getting your Startup Under Control
The best way to take control of your life is to start with an acceptance and inventory of your current realities – especially those things that seem meaningful to you. That can start with a “mind sweep” of all the things that have your attention, and should also range into all the areas of your life and work that signify areas of interest and accountability. What are you being held accountable to be doing well, at work? What are the parts of your personal life that have your attention? Then decide the next actions required or desired about every single one of those things that you assess should be different. Build in a systematic way to keep all that reviewed, and trust your intuitive judgements about what you then decide to do.
