When is the last time you said “I’ll take care of that tomorrow”?
Chances are that statement has been said numerous times in the last few days alone. In my opinion that can be the most debilitating self talk statement there is.
Getting through your current task list is the first step in clearing your “pile” of to-dos. It may seem like that “pile” will never get taken care of. If you keep putting tasks off until tomorrow than that pile will continue to build up. How you can stay ahead of the game and keep on top of your tasks?
- Create a to-do list. Arrange it with from most important to least
- Use a highlighter to cross the tasks off. It will keep your list cleaner and give a little color!
- Don’t attempt to multi-task or jump around on the list. You created the list in order of importance for a reason. Check off the list in order and you will be surprised how quickly it actually gets done
- Allow yourself a break after completing a set number of tasks.
Be disciplined and clean your list. The sense of accomplishment will be immediate and you won’t have to worry about doing all those tasks “tomorrow”.
Make it the best day!
