Inspiration – Organizing Activities

If you have a perfect productivity system great.  If not, 15 minutes of tweaking can PUMP YOU UP! Use the four D’s … do, delegate, dump, defer …. to have better project management through structured prioritization and productivity. Each evening reflect for 5 minutes and reset priorities, select tomorrow’s “do” things, 1-5 projects or steps or attitudes. Move things appropriately and add to your D Lists. The result is that you will wake up with a plan in place to hit the ground running with decisions from the night before. This nightly reflection and reset is a GAMECHANGER habit. Consolidate multiple existing digital and paper organizers into one as you decide which D is best for each item. Consider purchasing a new tool, because it can really inspire Terminator action.

As with a defer list, keeping a dump list on one page is so awesome because it helps you to ignore the shiny objects that are distracting you from getting important results. You can get something back from the DUMP if need be.  The defer list keeps you organized with ideas close at hand and responsibilities listed so that you don’t forget, for example, projects and plans to serve others.

Delegate. Some workplace managers have this skill, some don’t. For entrepreneurs, delegation usually costs $$.  What is on your defer list that you coulda woulda move to delegate?

“When you’re in a dark place, you sometimes tend to think you’ve been buried. Perhaps you’ve been planted. BLOOM.” ~ Christine Caine 

A sweetie shared this, it made a great banner for this blog for awhile!

If your to do lists are growing like weeds (hello!) and you are overwhelmed, buried in the dark, it’s time to till, replant with a beautiful specimen plant, let go of the weeds so you can focus on those beautiful blooms!

Do you see how D’s can be applied for navigating work, relationships, finances, and personal development? What else can focus for better results improve?

Challenge, if you choose to accept it. DO the hard things, it is the hard things that build you and your life exponentially. Another sweetie explained that.  Thank you, thank God for sweeties.
