Want to know what I do INSTEAD of a "routine"?
4. Make My To-Do list THEN my Priority List
I separate these two lists, because in reality my "to-do" list is a wish-list of endless tasks, and my "priority list" is my actual "WANT TO and WILL DO" list. Everything on the "to-do" list is worth being on there, but before it goes on my priority list I ask - does this have to get done NOW, does it have to be completed by me, or can I delegate? When does it have to get done? Today, this week, next week, this month - or later?
5. Have my RocketBook Handy at All Times to Write Things Down
I find my thoughts that come throughout the day need to be written down so they're off my mind and I can stay on track then revisit when I'm ready to "switch gears". RocketBook is a combination of writing on paper that can be reused like a whiteboard and filing electronically - to several different destinations such as email, google drive, dropbox, etc...
6. Celebrate Accomplishments - Delegate What I'm Not Getting Done
This took me some time to determine what I keep on my plate vs. what I delegate out to optimize efficiency and effectiveness but also prevent burnout. I have a VA and I absolutely love the apprenticeship program with Acadium for my marketing tasks. Interview and bring on a virtual marketing apprentice every 90days for up to 10 hours a week- that's 40hours/month that is delegated out that no longer is on my task list To-Do just to approve... yes please!
7. Personal Development & Continue to Learn - but WAIT!
Turn down the noise. Results come from converting information into transformation. That means taking the "what to and how to" into "want to and will do"... prioritize to optimize to do this.
I limit who I decide to get my information from as we're in a world of "info-preneurs" and endless amount of information available. I decide to absorb my information from audibles I have pre-selected, vetted out coaches or mentors I've either met in person at events or personally networked with and witness them take action and provide results, and limit myself from "regurgitated" material.
Secondly, when I do take the time to work on an area of focus I take all my notes (in my rocketbook), but prioritize only 1 or 2 tactical action steps I can implement right away. This is how I also work my own material outlined in my Trade Show ROI Accelerator Program. It's so much information, so I advise to not only learn the "what and the how", but then prioritize your "WANT TO and WILL DO".
