Do You Write Down Your Goals?

Yes, Always.
No, Never.
Sometimes.

Here are six tips on using a list to increase your productivity and develop your goal setting muscles:


1. Work From A List Every Day:

    Update your list for the next day the night before or first thing the morning of. Write it down! Something amazing will happen when you materialize your thoughts onto paper.


2. Standard Procedure:

    Hold fast to your "standard procedure" of working from your list, refusing to do anything that is not on the list. This is accomplished by updating your list as you work through your day.


3. Evaluate Tasks By Deadline:

    Whenever possible work on your largest or most difficult, least favorite task first. This will ensure it gets done, not ending up on the next day's list. If you insist on completing the smaller tasks first you will make little headway. Small tasks will continue to appear as your day unfolds.


4. Evaluate For Value:

    Evaluate Your Tasks For Value & Return Which task will bring you the most return on your effort? One whale is worth a thousand buckets of minnows!

5. Accomplish More:

    By working from a list everyday you will accomplish more in a week than most people do in months or even years.


6. Time Frames:

    Remember there are no such things as unreasonable goals, just unreasonable time frames.
