[This post was going to be long but then I realized it would take too long to write for me to be productive today. So I decided to take my own advice and keep it short.]

Prioritize everything that is important, let the rest go.

Juggle as many projects you love as you can on an ongoing basis.

Advance each project enough to call it “good for today.”

Think instinctively and batch tasks or focus.

Tackle the top three priorities first each day.

Watch out for things you postpone.

Be unapologetically self-aware.

Check your boundaries.

Enjoy your work more than anyone.

When you feel fatigued, do something else.

Keep your blog posts short when you have other things to do. 😉

  • Some good advice here, especially prioritizing 3 things and doing them first.  I always prioritize, but then have a looong list — and feel like I’ve gotten nowhere.  Aim for the top 3 first. Why must we do it all in a day?

    Thanks for breaking it down!

    I rarely repost other’s blogging efforts (I like original content), but I’m even printing this one. Thank you for sharing!

  • Prioritizing is so important! I always try to make a list and then number the items by level of importance. Doing this on a white board is also helpful because you can easily erase or add new messages to yourself. And you save paper 🙂
