How much of your typical workday focuses on what matters most?
To accurately answer this, you need to know what matters most.
As Laura Vanderkam wrote,
“You can have a great system for organizing email or scheduling daily conference calls on various projects, but I’m guessing at your retirement dinner, people won’t talk about your pristine in-box or packed schedule.”
What will they talk about at your retirement dinner?
What do you want them to talk about?
This week, list your top work priorities for the remainder of the year.
If you often spend your day lost in email or largely in ‘reactive mode’, the first step toward change is to determine your priorities. What results do you want to achieve? Where do you most want to invest your precious time? What will allow you to make your difference?
Categories to consider, for starters:
* Projects to complete
* Leaders to develop
* Strategic planning to engage
* Relationships to strengthen
* Mindset / personal skills to build
* Classes or certifications to finish
* Partnerships to create
Once you’ve determined your current priorities, you can start making shifts to bring the ideal to fruition – let me know if you’d like help with that!
