Have you ever find yourself getting annoyed by the direction given from the customer service or concierge when you ask where a certain place is in the building?
“You just go straight and take the escalator and it will be on your right Madam”. And you’ll walk straight and find two different escalators and trying to figure out which escalator to take and had to go back and ask for more specifics.
The direction was not wrong but it was not specific enough for you to reach your destination. Same goes to writing down your task when making a to-do list – you need to be more like a Waze (you even know when to not speeding coz it will tell you the hidden police traffic LOL) than a map to reach your destination or complete your tasks.
When writing your tasks, make more specific and actionable plans. For example:
Write 'Complete one blogpost on ABC topic' instead of 'Write a blogpost'. Or 'Reply emails regarding the PR' instead of 'Reply emails'.
By doing this when you actually start writing a blog, you will not waste the first few mins and your energy to think of what to write or you won’t be overwhelmed to which emails you need to tackle first. Easy peasy huh? So don’t forget to use this tips next time you write down your tasks – I promise you, you’ll achieve more productivity by applying this method.
Okay, so I’ll see you in the next post! Don’t forget to share this post if you find it useful!
Persevere and Stay Positive,
