Incorporate this discipline and watch yourself take off!
Once something lands on your plate, your desk, your to-do list, etc, complete this decision tree within 2-15 seconds of that thing landing:
- Do – can this be done right now within 2-5 minutes? Yes = Do it. No = Go to the next “D”
- Delegate – can this be delegated to someone else? Yes = Delegate it. No = Next “D”
- Defer – can this be deferred and added to your calendar? Yes = Put in on your calendar. No = The last “D”
- Delete – Delete this thing!
Crush obstacles to your productivity and priorities!
