Overwhelmed by the multitude of tasks and demands? Everyone including the company cat clamouring for your attention? Unable to focus?
You can't do it all, so where to start?
GO FOR THE BIGGEST WINS
Renowned management guru Peter Drucker says "Success is not about doing everything right, it's about choosing to do the right things".
Step 1: Write down a list of everything you 'should' do.
Step 2: Prioritise according to IMPORTANCE and URGENCY. Don't sweat the small stuff. Highlight the tasks that will have the biggest impact on your results. These are often NOT the most urgent. It is so tempting to clear the less important but urgent tasks first, but no. Start on the one which will have the most impact.
