So, here’s my recommendation, one that I've made a thousand times since reading that gem:
1. Sit down with your To Do list and your calendar and schedule each task as an event on your calendar.
2. The ones you don’t schedule time for are really low-priority tasks. You can file those away under a ‘brainstorming’ type of file somewhere
3. DO the items on your calendar as scheduled, or move them around as necessary.
4. Pull out that brainstorming file once a quarter or so just to make sure you don’t lose the idea of the century.
The greatest thing about scheduling these tasks on the calendar is that they actually get completed, right?
NOPE. That definitely is a good thing, but the real benefit here is that it’s hard to schedule an event for less than 15-30 minutes on a calendar. When that task actually only takes 5-10 minutes, you have just bought 10-25 minutes!
What are you going to do with the time?
I’ll tell you:work ON your business.
Use this new-found time to sit back and think about the Big Picture of your business. At the end of the day, you will have completed your tasks, gotten rid of that nagging To Do list, and spent time being the entrepreneur your company needs you to be.
