You have one job at the moment.
The task you are doing right now.
Not the next todo on your list. Nor the email that is about to chime in your inbox. Or the phone call that is ringing your phone.
Can you finish the one task you are working on?
Many Tasks Started, None Done
Are you guilty of starting many tasks, but not finishing them?
Interruptions, distractions, and multi-tasking… all of these keep us from actually completing the tasks in front of us.
Sometimes it feels like you have started 57 things, but end your day without finishing any of them.
Pick One Thing and Do It to Done
Avoid starting that next task until you complete the one you are working on.
Then check it off your list before you begin another task. Besides feeling great, you will have closure before taking on your next todo.
At the end of the day, you may have worked on fewer tasks… but the ones you did will be done.by
