- Your desk, your inbox, your room, your " To-Do" list, and your life
2. Make a Plan for Success, EVERYDAY
-get physical and write out your tasks that need to be completed for that day. ( Check off as you go, it feels so good! )
Rank your tasks in terms of priority and align them with your job demands, your short and long term goals, and MBO's.
4. Be the most effective.
It's not a race. Don;t try to be the most efficient, try to be the most effective.
Focus on the " vital few" rather than the "vital many"\
6. Finish the Job
Develop your " finishing instinct " when you get to a task, have the mentality that you are going to finish it no matter what!
7. Stop Procrastinating
Most people tend to start with the easiest tasks first and push off the most difficult one. DON'T fall into this trap!
8. Stay organized
once you get organized, stay organized. Seems like a no brainer, but if you know you always manage to become unorganized, make the conscious decision to stay organized
