Getting things done
Is your to-do list as long as your arm?
Mine certainly is, and every time I turn around I think of something new to put on it. First come the projects for other people, of course. That’s how I make a living and I make it a priority not to miss deadlines.
But then I start thinking of things like adding some of my new testimonials to my web sites, converting some of my ezine articles into web pages and adding them to a website, sending a new message to the people who signed up for my free report on how to avoid choosing a bogus contractor, getting back in touch with people who sent inquiries but weren’t quite ready to commit to copy. I even think of new websites I’d like to build. So the list goes on and on…
This week I took my own advice and time blocked some time to finish a project. Well, to finish the first step at least. You may know that I offer a 6-month marketing and sales course for Realtors. It’s only been available one month at a time. This week I got it all edited and compiled so I can offer it all in one CD.
I still think it is better for all of us to get our lessons in small doses so we don’t get overwhelmed, but I’ve realized that some people are anxious and would like to have all the lessons at one time.
Next step: Build a page to offer it and see about labels for the CD’s. I’m going to block the time for that, too, so that it doesn’t get put on the back burner.
If you’re like me and sometimes act like a grasshopper jumping from one project to the next, give the time blocking a try. It just might let you say “I finished this!” faster than if you just keep looking at your to-do list every day and deciding which way to jump in the moment.
Yours for prosperity,
