Ever feel as if, in the quest to get everything done, you're not quite doing enough?
In an article on LinkedIn, J.T. O'Donnell offers a refreshing
approach to the "how do I get it all done" problem.
Her solution: Limit your daily to-do list to 10 things, and don't beat yourself up if you don't get them all done.
O'Donnell's list comprises a balance of job tasks, social chores, and developmental goals:
1. Read something related to my industry.
2. Read something related to business development.
3. Send two emails to touch base with old colleagues.
4. Empty my private client inbox
by responding to all career coaching questions within one business day.
5. Check in with each team member on their progress.
6. Have a short nonwork-related conversation with every employee.
7. Review my top three goals for my company that are focused on its growth.
8. Identify and execute
one task to support each of my top three goals.
9. Post five valuable pieces of content on all of my major social media accounts.
10. Take a full minute to appreciate what I have and how far I've come.
