Everything on my personal to do list needs to be done, but it doesn't have to be done by me. Did you read that right? Yes it needs to be done, but it doesn't have to be done by you. Yes it needs to be done, but it may not need to be done today. Most people get tired mentally before they even start on their to do list. So here are a few questions to ask yourself about your list.
1. Does it have to be done by you?- Can you delegate the task to someone else?
2. Does it have to be done TODAY?- If you accomplish it today, will it move the big picture?
3. Do you really have the time to do it the RIGHT way today-If not, don't do it because you will have to come back to it ayway.
Time and energy are two of your most valuable resources, but when you allocate your time and energy to the wrong things you accomplish nothing. Don't become the person that is always busy, but never productive. Evaluate your list against these three questions daily and position your task in the right place. Do the things that will move you toward the bigger goal. Doing less really is doing more, when the less you do produces big results.
