Have you noticed that your to do list is growing?
Sometimes it seems like for every item you complete, you have to add 2-5 more items. Or, does that just happen to me?
I used to have a notebook labeled “Never Ending List of 5-Minute Projects.” What was interesting was that list was mostly a compilation of tasks other people thought I should be doing. Very little of it had anything to do with what I was actually accountable for producing.
And, there was virtually no reward for finishing that list – but there were definitely consequences when my own work wasn’t done.
Make a habit of putting your most important items in the calendar first.
