One-minute ‘to-do’ list

 

I’m guessing that many of us are list makers. Each day, we write down things we need to do, then erase them after the task gets done.

I’ve got a business friend who slightly modifies that list. Of course, he knows what his major tasks will be for that week. But what should he focus on first?

Each day before leaving the office, he takes about a minute to quickly list the major activities he must accomplish the next day. When he gets to work the next morning, he sets immediately to work on those tasks.

I tried his technique a few years ago, and it works so well for me I still use it today. Of course, it’s not a complete list of the things I must do…but it’s a “starter” system that gets my day rolling.
