Are you orbiting a giant to do list and having trouble getting anything done?
This happens to me when I get too many projects going at once – I think it's the bane of a creative person.
When this happens I return to a simple bit of time management advice I got many years ago; choose the ONE thing that will move your project or your business forward and make sure you do it. It's so much easier to actually accomplish the ONE thing as opposed to a whole list of action steps and when done on a daily basis your most important goals are reached.
Because I have multiple projects going at once, I've expanded this bit of advice to help me identify the ONE THING per project and I've turned it into a visual worksheet. The worksheet helps you list a few key action steps and then narrow in on the ONE thing. You can even color in the worksheet – use colored markers and basically bring a little fun to the process – and on top of that coloring is great for reducing stress.
You can download the worksheet here; It's the Chunk It Down Worksheet ENJOY!
How many items on your to do list right now will actually move forward an important project or grow your business? What is the ONE thing you can to today?
