Productivity: How to Start Your Day – By Aaron Dragushan

by FeedFront Staff on March 18, 2010

 The Problem:  For most of us, the first thing we do in the morning is check our email. As we start reading and replying, it’s easy to forget that we are now in “responding to other people” mode.

 Of course responding to others is an important part of work, but when you start your day that way, you often end it by thinking, “Argh! I never worked on _______!”

 The Solution: Before you start work, take three minutes and decide on your top priorities for the day. You’re never going to get everything done, so what’s most important for today? 

 Write it down and put it somewhere prominent.

 With your priorities in place it’s easier to choose what to work on first and avoid “stumbling into your day”.

 The Secret: You’ll find that simply having priorities will give you a sense of empowerment and control over your work, even if there are days when you can’t stick to them.

 Have a great day!
