Tip #1 List The Tasks:

2 Tip #1 List The Tasks Making a task list helps free the brain from remembering them. Now move on to completing them one by one.

Tip #2 Delegate the Tasks:

3 Tip #2 Delegate the Tasks Delegate the tasks when you can. Do things that only you can do or the ones that are critical to your business like marketing. Take help for the rest.

Tip #3 Handle the task once:

4 Tip #3 Handle the task once Tasks that can be done quickly like replying to a mail or filing a piece of paper should be done right away. Don’t waste time in putting these on to-do lists and reviewing over and over.

Tip #4 Prioritize your tasks:

5 Tip #4 Prioritize your tasks Put a priority on each of your task. Do all A level tasks before touching any B level task. Otherwise important things will wait while you spin the wheels.

Tip #5 Plan in advance:

6 Tip #5 Plan in advance Make your to-do list the previous night, not in the morning. The most productive time should be used to do the job, not plan them.

Tip #6 Block out chunks of time:

7 Tip #6 Block out chunks of time You must block out decent sized chunks of time like 30 minutes or 60 minutes and do important tasks in these slots without allowing anyone to disturb you during this period.

Tip #7 Take a break:

8 Tip #7 Take a break Take a break after every solid working block. Get up, stretch a little or take a walk around the office. This will free up the jammed body and mind. You will have a revitalized mind to tackle the next item.

Tip #8 Visualize the results:

9 Tip #8 Visualize the results Some tasks require deft attention and might be a bit routine thereby making them look boring. Visualize the results of this task and you will be doing it with renewed vigor.

Tip #9 Collect the tools:

10 Tip #9 Collect the tools Make sure that you have all the tools handy before taking up any task . You don’t want any breaks or problems while doing what you are doing. Imagine how it would feel when the ink in your pen runs out while you are writing in full flow.

Tip #10 Eat the frog:

11 Tip #10 Eat the frog You should tackle the most challenging task first when you are fully charged up. No point doing the trivial stuff first and then taking up the monster when you are tired or bored.

Tip #11 Close that list:

12 Tip #11 Close that list Once you have added enough items to your task list (things that you can do in about 80% of the day), stop adding any more items to this list. Add a super-urgent job by swapping out another item from the list. This way you won’t be a list chaser and will enjoy doing what you are doing.
