In his book The Success Boxes, Urresti offers his exclusive and patented method to achieve this balance through task prioritization and time management. In addition to knowledge and dedication, this requires something else: motivation, which the author translates as a reason for action.
“This drive consists of clearly defined goals and big ‘whys’ that become a powerful motivator,” that is, in our dreams, which are sincere desires. Likewise, he asserts that “to reach the essence of what moves us to act, one must be very specific: knowing who I want to be and what I want to do, why I want it, how I will know that I mean goal achieved or when I hope to achieve it are some of the questions we must ask ourselves before we start”, because “without personal motivation there is no professional motivation and any success will be empty for us”.
The 7 keys it offers SMEs and self-employed people to find daily motivation are:
-Think about your why: Do you know which your truths are for what? The ones you have give you a sincere desire to do whatever it takes to get them.
-Coherence and balance: Rate your wheel of life, which is made up of six areas of life: health, work, family, education, ethics and social affairs. Is it really in balance and do you take enough time for all areas? Do you always prioritize work and the professional side? Do you feel better and more motivated in the areas where you spend more time? How many of the daily tasks are aimed at keeping the balance in your wheel of life?
-To plan At least one daily action for each area of your life.
-Examine your daily tasks of the professional and personal area and identify how many and which ones lead you to your goals and which ones you can delegate to employees or people you trust.
-Ask yourself if the tasks you perform are goals or goals and break them down into boxes (small sequential actions aimed at a goal) to be able to plan, execute, or execute and move on to real actions.

– Take stock at the end of the day to be able to measure the results and know if you have performed those actions that provide balance and drive the motivational engine, and if not, analyze why and identify actions for improvement.
