When you have too much to do…

Ugh! If only you could see all of my to do notes! So many ideas, so little time!

It’s great being full of ideas, but boy does the pile keep getting bigger!

So what do you do to make sure you aren’t getting distracted and how do you make sure you are being productive!?

Write a to do list of course, but not just a list, here’s a few tips to making your to do list a productive one:

PRIORITISE

We all know our to do list is a million pages long. So, here is how you tackle it; each morning or night before, sit down and write five things that are the most important and productive that need to be done. This way you are not sitting at your desk staring into space at a million and one things to do and once you have ticked the fifth one off the list, you will feel accomplished and satisfied at a day full of productive work, smashing goals and making it happen.

EAT THE FROG

Yep, that’s right. Eat the frog! Do the thing that you would leave last, first! That way you won’t be dreading it the whole day and can actually concentrate on the rest of the list and growing your business.

MAKE A SCHEDULE

Allocate some time for each task. We all know we probably spend way to much time answering emails and doing things that aren’t bringing in the business. So schedule your time accordingly. As we all have the same amount of time in a day, it is just how we choose to spend it.

ONE THING AT A TIME

We know, it is easier said than done. But seriously, don’t get distracted! You don’t want to get to the end of the day and have a bit of each task done but actually have none of them completed. Whoops, guess its tomorrows list too now! Yep, that sure is to get you in the wrong mindset for the day ahead. So get disciplined, kick some butt, have fun and make sh*t happen.
