Boost your entire team’s efficiency by sharing these tactics:
- Review any minor tasks left undone, answering this question about each: “Is it still worth the effort I will have to expend to complete it?” If the answer is “No,”drop it. If the answer is “Yes,” do it now so you can clear your schedule for even more important tasks.
- Rank your tasks by answering these questions: “Of all that I can do, what will add the most value for me and for the organization?” “What tasks can only I do that I have done well before?” and “What am I being paid to do?”
- Record your commitments. As you write and revise goals, priorities will become more concrete.
