Lessons in Performance – Chris Lema

Every single morning I sit down and I write the three things I’m gunna get done that day.  That’s “Defining My Three.” I have to choose carefully, but those are the three things I care about. If those three things are done, I can call the end of the day a success.   Three things, not 15, not 25, not a full schedule of stuff.  Three things.  But here’s the thing.  If, five days out of seven, you can take three things and you can get them done and you do that for weeks every year and you do that for years … people won’t know there were other things you didn’t get done because they’ll just be looking at a long list of shit you got done.
