Throw Away Your To Do List ~ Become More Productive

A simple time trick that doubled my personal productivity: Get rid of To-Do Lists… 

If you want to become 2-3-10-100 times more effective, here’s a way that I know works:

1. Throw away your To-Do List or at least rename it to My Wish List.

2. Create a SHORT To-Be-Done-Today list with no more than 2-3 high value, high priority items that align DIRECTLY with your Number 1 Goal for the month.

3. If any item on any list does not DIRECTLY reduce the time to goal, or quality of expected results, DELETE it. For the squeamish, keep it on your Wish List until it lights itself on fire, or becomes obsolete… THEN DELETE it.

4. Take SMART Action. Do whatever you have to do to make SUBSTANTIAL progress on each item THAT day. Get in a Finish It or Fail mindset. I don’t want to be blunt here, but if you don’t know how or need help, get it.

2021 is shaping up to be a wonderful year with the fullness of opportunity for some or a total trainwreck for others. To the SMART goes the race.

Get the tools you need to succeed… learn how to employ them… bask in newfound success!
