DON'T BE BUSY

How to Complete a Brain Dump
It’s a pretty simple habit to start. Grab a piece of paper and find a quiet place. Start writing every thought, to-do, reminder, task, or question without organizing it.By taking just 10 minutes to clear out your mind, you will find more clarity. All of your worries, thoughts, and tasks will be recorded in a safe and reliable place. This takes the pressure off your brain to remember and remind you of all.the.things!
What is a
A trigger list is a great tool to use when you are completing a brain dump or mind sweep. It will help to “trigger” memories or tasks that you might not be thinking about. This list might include things about your home, job, errands, or projects that you would otherwise forget.
Weekly & Daily
Weekly Planner VS. Calendar
Creating a weekly planner is NOT the same as using a calendar. This is a time management strategy called "Time Blocking," where you schedule out every part—and we mean every part—of your week. With time blocking, you are effectively breaking the work-week into incremental time slots where you check your email, complete income-producing activities, work on projects, take a break, or even exercise.Like most time management strategies, time blocking is a way for you to reclaim your day and get a better sense of where your time is actually going. By scheduling blocks of work, you not only ensure you are completing your important tasks, but also ensure you are setting aside time for rest and self-care.
5 Benefits of Making a Weekly Plan
1. It keeps us accountable.
Just the act of making an appointment helps set a date and time aside for a specific activity. Not only is setting aside a specific date and time helpful for meetings and doctor appointments, but you can also use this strategy to carve out time to spend with friends or to complete specific tasks on your to-do list. Doing so gives it importance and it is not left to chance that we will finish that lingering task because we already assigned a date and time for it.
2. It keeps us realistic
When planning out tasks and activities on the calendar, be realistic. Carve out enough time for each task, and write down what time you will start and finish the task. If in doubt, slightly overestimate how long it may take. Overestimating is a great way to ensure we do not feel rushed, and it allows us extra time in case unexpected events come up. Using a calendar might make us realize that not all of the tasks we had in mind for today can be finished, but it shows us which activities can be.
3. It helps us prioritize
Which tasks are important? Which tasks add value to our lives, and which ones do not? Putting items on the calendar makes us choose what we want to spend our time on. This allows us to make room for what is important and filter out the rest.
4. It keeps us on track
Have you struggled with procrastination? Having a specific date and time set aside for a task tells us when we have to do it. It helps us eliminate excuses, and it makes us get to work. No longer will we let tasks roll down our to-do list. We make them a priority and stop delaying.
5. It sets boundaries
When we see the weekly plan, we see how our day is to be structured. It stops us from spending too much time on one activity, and not enough time on another. We can even schedule fun activities and breaks in our calendar to help make sure they don’t drag out and make sure we don’t forget to have fun too. If it helps, use a timer. Once the timer goes off, it’s a reminder to move onto the next task. If the task isn’t complete, schedule another block of time for the task the following day.
The benefit of creating a 6 Most Important List is that every day, as you start work, you know exactly what you will work on first. You also have clarity about what to complete next. When an interruption occurs, you know quickly whether to act on it immediately, delay it, or dismiss it.
Six things. Not sixty, not thirty-six. Six things.
Important things. Not urgent things. Not someone else’s things. Things important to you.
Each “thing” is a task you can finish today. Break bigger things down into smaller steps that you can do today.
At the end of the day. Not at the beginning when you’re optimistic. At the end of the day when you can be realistic.
Do item 1 the first thing in the morning. Don’t check email first. Don’t rehash priorities. Start at 1 and finish it.
Daily. Every day. Every single day.
Follow up is key to success!
Utilizing a system for follow up results in peace of mind.
The "Office in a Box"
Label your accordion folder tabs with every day of the week + "Next Week" + "Next Month" ( and Jan-Dec depending on what size folder you have.)
File away your recent customers, leads, potential team members, and any tasks into the correct day to follow up with.==Example: == whatever is in the "Tuesday" folder is all you must focus on for Tuesday. Follow up with Susie on the product she purchased two days ago, then move her profile card to 2 weeks out or: Next Month: write a note/ sticky note with any memos to remember.
