Prioritise Prioritising

10243572_mWe all have personal routines that set up our day, but so often our professional routines fail to set our day up effectively.

One of the most important habits to implement in your daily practice is to prioritise your prioritising. What I mean by that is, at the start of each day before you open the “labyrinth” of emails, sit down and write down the five most important things that you need to do for that day. This will give you a clear head and momentum towards achieving your most important priorities.

I’m curious, how well do you do with this habit? Love to hear the impact of it below on the blog.

    Hi Colin

    Great idea. Too often we are at the mercy of the never ending stream of emails. I’ve recently changed my Outlook setup to start in “Calendar” with my “Tasks” showing on the right hand side. Now I decide when to check emails; after I’ve checked my priority list for the day.

    Hi Colin,
    How appropriate when I was sitting here ‘procrastinating’ as you have told me not to and wondering just how I should prioritise the every changing priorities. I had already made one to read your email…no pleased I did.
