What are the most influential habits in your life and why?
Finishing things! The circumstances in which I grew up influenced me heavily and basically, all my habits are built to make sure I finish the things that are necessary or that I want to have done. I am an obsessed compulsive personality type and I literally get anxious and physically as well as mentally frustrated if something is left undone. So it’s not too much about remembering things and noting them down – if you are focused on finishing things your mind remembers and reminds you of them.
How do you set goals and manage time?
I set my goals by sitting down, thinking, focusing on an issue and putting it down on simple, regular notebook. To focus and put a bit pressure on myself I always add deadlines to each task. It does not necessarily imply that I am writing only the things that I have to do that day or that particular week – I am trying to think big and therefore am noting things that I want to achieve within a month, half a year, a year and so on.
Besides that, normally every weekend I’m trying to plan an upcoming week making sure that my priorities are dealt with first as opposed to other people since they come to me. As a CEO I have to make sure that my tasks have to come first and that I deal with my issues first so I can dedicate my full time and attention dealing with other issues only once that is done. If you implement that kind of thinking you don’t really need any reminders, posts its or anything like that; the only thing I use is my phone to check google calendar for the meetings that are set.
