Today, after having a very productive day, I was reminded of the one of the most helpful pieces of advice for personal and professional productivity.
WRITE A LIST.
Last night, before going to bed, I wrote a list of the 7 most important things I had to get done today. I actually did all 7. That doesn't happen all the time, but it happened today, and I know those 7 things would not have gotten done if I had not written a list.
SIMPLE BUT POWERFUL.
Now it's your turn.
Write a list of the most important things you need to get done today. Work on the first item on the list until it is finished. And then work on the next item. And then the next.
Don't let the simplicity of this post cause you to miss the point.
WRITE YOUR LIST.
Then get to work.
