Is procrastination costing you big bucks and reducing satisfaction with your progress?

Thanks for visiting my blog.

I don’t know who first put out this concept but it works for my clients.

Make a “do not do” list – assign things to others, an intern or a virtual assistant if possible.  Only put about 5 things on your daily “to do” list. Set aside a block of time to work on things that give you the highest ROI (return on investment) and ROTI (return on time invested).  If necessary, move about 2 things to the next day should emergencies arise. Develop this list before you leave for the day or at night.  This way you know what to jump on in the morning. If it’s a large project, divide it into small tasks and congratulate yourself for getting it done. You are head and shoulders above others! See the quote below and hang it above your desk.

Find a way to measure what you accomplished. You can use a spreadsheet. Many people do the little things to get them off the list. I do not suggest doing what is not of high importance. If these items keep getting moved to another day, perhaps it should be “on hold” for now.

Measuring your progress also increases your motivation. How wonderful is that?

Please leave your thoughts/comments below.  I would love to hear from you.
