Many of us face the challenge of “not having enough hours in a day”. There is a simple common sense solution to all of your problems. Don’t choose to take on battles you can not when in a few hours. Use a similar strategy to the snow ball effect. Small victories will result in tide changes towards winning the war.
- Start with sitting down, writing or typing out what you need to accomplish.
- Start attacking the tasks that you complete in the shortest amount of time.
- Notify parties where you need more information for the tasks where you may need more clarification. Don’t start a project where you don’t know completely what the heck your doing. You’ll end up wasting a ton of time. Plus this put the ball back in their court. Try not to have people waiting you. All eyes can’t be on you if it isn’t your turn to dance.
- Break your large tasks into phases or micro tasks. By doing this you can move back to step 2 and do it again.
