Long and Complex is Better

Make your Effectiveness lists as long and complex as needed. And no more than needed.


Because it is far better to have all the details on your lists than rattling around in your head.

Catch yourself if, when refining and refreshing your lists, you resist creating a new outcome or doable. You may be thinking your lists are getting too long or that there’s too much to do. Whether you write it down or keep it in your head, it is still current or potential task that you have some commitment to handling. Get it out of your head.

And if your lists of outcomes and doables are too long, start moving things to your “Back Burner” list.
