Professional Organizing Tips and Resources.
Try this basic exercise to 'Managing Commitments'
1. Write down on a blank piece of paper one project, situation or task that is on your mind that you need to ‘get done’.
2. In just one sentence describe the intended outcome so that you could check this project off as ‘done’.
3. Then write down the very next physical action required to move this project or task to completion.
Commonly the best thing that comes from doing this is you having a clearer definition of what ‘done’ looks like, and the very next step you need to take to get there.
Nothing has happened yet, after all, the task has yet to be done. Yet for many, after doing this simple activity, a sense of added motivation can be felt as up until now it was just a thought nagging at your subconscious mind. Now you know what 'done' looks like and can place this task in priority with other tasks and projects also written down.
