Performance Habit #24 - Time Vs Tasks

Achievement = Performance

One of the biggest drivers of performance is a feeling of achievement. However, if you are like most people, you have a never-ending task list that never gets achieved. Be realistic with your daily and weekly tasks. Calculate how much time they require and then check to see if you actually have that time in between meetings, interruptions and pre-planned events.

The best thing you can do is to have two checkpoints.

Checkpoint one: Monday morning

  • What is scheduled for this week?

  • What is critical on which days?

  • How long (roughly) will these tasks take?

  • Do I have the time, in between other commitments, to get these tasks done?

  • If not, what do I need to prioritise or delegate?


 

Checkpoint Two: First thing each morning

  • What is absolutely critical for today?

  • How long (roughly) will these tasks take?

  • Do I have the time, in between other commitments, to get these tasks done?

  • If yes, are there other, non-critical things that I can work on as well?

  • If not, what do I need to prioritise or delegate?


These checkpoints will help you stay realistic and focussed on what
