Take a couple of minutes and write down absolutely everything you need to do. Everything. Get it out of your head.
Grade the list into A, B, C, D & E tasks.
- A = Urgent and Important. Urgent means it needs to be done in the next 7 days, important means that there are serious consequences or great rewards for doing the task.
- B = Important
- C = Nice to Do
- D = Tasks that can be Delegated
- E = Eliminate
Prioritise the “A’s” into A1, A2, A3 etc. then the “B’s” and the “C’s” etc. Identify which tasks you can delegate and hey they may even be a few that you can eliminate.
