When overloaded, the last thing we want to do is add more projects and tasks to our plate. But here’s a project that will remove things from our plate: renovate our task/attention management system.
Time invested here will help us choose the most important things to do, throw away the low-value stuff, handle all the interruptions, and stay on top of things day after day, week after week.
Where to start? There are many places that would work. Here’s one good place: try spending just 10 minutes each morning picking the most important 4 things you want to get done that day. Then head into your day with this as a guide. Even the busiest of us can select a few things that, when we get them done, will have us feeling productive.
Make the investment, no matter where you start. You’ll be happy you did.
