Getting Everything Done Isn’t Always Easy

Getting your most important tasks completed is not always the easiest thing to do, especially when you’re having a tough time. You may have more to do for the next day and feel overwhelmed. Then you start the next day overloaded rather than starting the day fresh and energetic.

Janice’s story

Janice likes to have her day planned out ahead of time. She would start off feeling comfortable, knowing what to do.

Her problem was that she would begin her day by doing tasks such as checking her e-mail, checking her sales, and looking at her finances. Even though she had a to-do list, she didn’t get to it right away.

She got sidetracked many times during the day with unexpected issues that popped up.

Self-employed people often find themselves behaving this way. With no one watching over you, you get sidetracked. This article will help you move in the right direction.

If you want, get on a daily routine, then plan it in advance. If you don’t plan, you’ll end up getting sidetracked with everything that comes up.

I’m not saying that you should ignore those issues, but you have to determine the difference between the problems that should be taken care of immediately and problems that can be postponed until later.

A Simple Plan Works Best

Step One:

Start by creating a list of tasks you must do every day.

Step Two:

Set the priority for each of the tasks on your list.

Step Three:

Rewrite your list in priority order, and leave a space for a checkmark by every item you complete. In the upper right-hand corner, leave space for a date.

Step Four:

Make copies of your new daily to-do list.

Step Five:

Each new workday, take a copy of your schedule and write the date in the upper right-hand corner.

Step Six:

Start on the task with the highest priority. Complete that task. Don’t start a new one until you have completed it.

Check off completed tasks

When you’ve completed the current task, put a checkmark next to it, and go to Step Six. It’s a simple procedure, but don’t let its simplicity fool you. It’s powerful. It keeps you on track. It gives you a new approach to getting your work completed, and it works.

You don’t need to complicate things, and you don’t need to overwhelm yourself. All you need to do is stick to the list. After a few weeks of using this idea, you’ll find yourself becoming more productive and free from wasted time as well as feelings of anxiety and guilt.

Working with a schedule

Working with a schedule will help you keep on track and help you complete your important tasks while cutting out wasted time. Try this for a few weeks, and I’m sure that it will help you move through each day quickly and effectively.

That’s The Way I See It!
