Are You Organising Your Tasks?

Have you been more proactive in your planning since attending one of my workshop, 6reading my book or enrolling in my e-course?  I certainly hope so.  Are you now conscious of the benefits of thinking ahead so you’re no longer in an urgent rush, that you can delay a task if something more important comes up because you are thinking of planning no longer as a day by day event but as an overall weekly structure?

Are you organising your tasks so you know what needs to be accomplished and when it needs to be accomplished by?

It’s an incredible freedom isn’t it?

The key is not to prioritise what’s on your schedule

but to schedule your priorities.

Stephen Covey

The key is to think about what you need to accomplish this week?  Schedule it over the whole week. Scheduling time for what is most important means these tasks start moving forward to completion.

At either the end or the start of each day, list all the activities and tasks for the day then rate them as either:

A – Highest Priority tasks

B – Important

C – Jobs that need to be done

D – Lowest Priority tasks

Then rate all the “A” tasks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 … and go about your day by doing all the “A” tasks first.  This will ensure if you have distractions or other urgent tasks that take you away from your schedule you are at the very least getting the most important tasks done.

Action:

So please at either the start of each day or each evening, list all your tasks you want to complete the next day and then rate them as A, B, C or D then ensure you do all your “A” tasks before any other tasks.

See if this makes a difference to your progress. I would love your comments, hiccups, advice.

Thank you and I look forward to sharing more tips, strategies and skills to support you to be more organised so that you too can create a better life.

you will be an inspiration to others.”
