Here are 4 steps to help you get more done in your day…
1) Write it down.
The trap is that you’ve got so many things going on in your head or on your desk that it’s easy to get lost in them. Write things down so it gets out of your head and onto paper. That way you can can see what you’re dealing with.
2) Do one thing at a time.
Just because you have a number of things you need to do during the day, doesn’t mean you have to tackle all of it at once. Do one thing at a time. By doing one thing at a time you can make sure you get things done efficiently. This one is important to remember.
3) Break it down.
So now that you’re working on one thing, break it down. Set it out into smaller steps so it’s more doable. When you figure out the steps it becomes simpler in your head and easier for you to get it done.
4) Take little actions everyday
After writing your tasks down, deciding on doing one thing, then breaking it down into steps enables you to start taking action. Taking little actions everyday helps you keep things moving forward.
