To better understand your purpose and become a function of  your values you should consider following these 10 easy steps which will get you back on track right now!


  1. USE STICKY NOTES – Write down important tasks that require your immediate attention.  Use colors to help code each tasks importance.
  2. CREATE A TO-DO LIST – Consider all the things you need to do and compile them in a list.
  3. INCLUDE EVEN THE SMALLEST TASKS – No matter how small or unimportant a task is don’t forget to include it.
  4. CREATE a TEMPLATE – For those repeat tasks, you can set up a template to prevent you from wasting any time on writing the same messages over and over again.
  5. USE A RECORDER – Use a digital recorder to record your thoughts and get a better perspective while brainstorming.  Remember you smartphone may already have this feature built in.
  6. ASSIGN A COMMUNICATION PERIOD – This will allow you to concentrate on work without interruptions.
  7. USE YOUR SMART PHONE – I have found that going paperless is the way to go.  I use my smartphone to help keep my calendar in line.  I can set alarms, use a timer to keep be focused on the task at hand for a specific amount of time.
  8. PRIORITIZE YOUR TASKS – Highlight the most important tasks and bring them to the top of your list.
  9. DELEGATE – Don’t be afraid to ask for help.  Not ever task needs your full attention.  It just needs to get done!  Delegating helps you spend more time on critical tasks.
  10. RISE EARLY – Early morning hours are peaceful and great for accomplishing all of your expected responsibilities.
