Over the years, I've been called a machine, a rocket, a powerhouse, a bulldog, and all of these with a positive connotation thanks to my endless energy and ability to get a lot of things done in a short amount of time.
Many people have asked me how I do it and how I continue to do it consistently.
I always say I have developed very good time management, organisation and planning skills over the years and use the right tools for me to help me. For example, my Google calendar is my project management tool that more or less owns my professional and personal lives.
I block time not just for my meetings but also for the things that I need to get done such as projects or certain action items as well my personal engagements like coffee or dinner meet-ups with friends, travel plans etc. I even colour code my calendar so just with a quick glance I know if my week or day is full of meetings or space to work on projects or a ton of personal engagements.
Everything is in my calendar. If it's not there, it's not going to happen.
However, in addition to these skills, constantly being able to push forward and to do more comes with intrinsic motivation - basically the desire to do something.
And that's based on inspiration.
