Monday Mottoes – #208

to-do-listIt’s Monday morning and you need a challenge. Why slink into your work week overwrought and overtired? Time to take your career and make it what you want.

You may not believe you can control things like new clients, or smarter investments, or more customers, or targeting your research. But today, just for my special reading public, I will give you the tip that could make all the difference, especially when it comes to productivity.

Drum roll, please. Are you ready for this? It’s one word. One word that will change your life if you use it.


That’s it.


Create lists of what you hope to accomplish in life, then boil it down to this week and then down to thtoday. Preferably, write the list the day before. Do the hardest items first. Don’t necessarily create a long list, but focus on the 20% that will bring the 80% of results.

Then hit the ground running.

Check them off, one by one. Work the plan and develop your strategy for success. Lists have worked for others, why not you? Which brings us to today’s motto:

“If you’re like me, I get hooked into to-do lists, you know. I’ll say I checked that off. Okay, I did that. And you have all these things you’re doing.” ~ Jeff Bridges

This is the key to multi-tasking. It’s how you juggle numerous duties AND do them well. Lists keep us straight. Lists keep us pumped.

Try it for a couple of weeks. You’ll be amazed at your productivity soaring. Learn to like lists and they will promote you.

Happy Monday, everyone!
