June 21st Part 2 – okay I get a little distracted July 12, 2010

I do apologize, for those of you who have been waiting for the rest of that series. To  say I got a little distracted, would of course be an understatement, but here we go, back on time and on track, to help YOU get what you want!

4)      Now you want to prioritize these items – Finally you have the top 30 things that take up your day, and they have been successfully divided into one of 5 categories A, B, C, D, E.

Look at each and every one and make sure that THEY are where they are, because that’s exactly where you feel they should be. If after a thorough examination you have determined that they all belong on the list and they are in their proper priorities, now look at each item under your FIRST 3 letters and determine how much WEIGHT they carry on their own! Then use the numbers 1 through 5 to label them even DEEPER within the subspecialty. For example If out of 30 items you have 4 that all fall within the A category, now you have to examine each of these 4 very closely and you will begin to see what is the absolute, have to get done NOW, item that’s #1, then from the 3 that remain choose the one that actually carries the least amount of weight, but still has heavy consequences if not executed quickly! Then the last 2 will ‘fight’ over #’s 2 and 3.

Work your way through sections A, B and C that way. With D, you will want to delegate them to others according to deadlines and their due dates. Item E is exactly that, place all of the ITEM E’s in a folder on your desktop and if you have run out of EVERYTHING else you can delegate them. If not, give yourself a time limit for these items to be physically tossed to the trash! If they haven’t been tossed aside, than someone, maybe not you, needs to re-prioritize them, they may not even belong on your list.

Once you have all your items grouped and then separated within each grouping, you can now look at EACH item as a “do-able” task and work your way through, until they have ALL been completed, forgotten or tossed!

For more and more, please cruise on over to:
