Todo List Magic (aka “seeing into mountains”)

The 3-Minute Plan

The Problem: We often jump straight into work, and spend the day reacting to what other people want and neglecting our priorities. At the end of the day we think, “Argh! I never worked on _______!”

The Trick:
Before you start work, take three minutes and decide your top priorities for the day. You’re never going to get everything done – what is MOST important for today? Write them down and put them somewhere you’ll see them all day.

The Secret: You’ll find that simply having priorities will give you a sense of empowerment and control over your work, even if there are days when you can’t stick to them.

Why this works: When you first start working, your mind is fresh. It’s a GREAT time to write, plan or do creative work. With your priorities in place it’s easier to choose what to work on first and avoid “stumbling into your day”.
