Create a daily list, assign a letter and constantly update
Each day, when creating your “to-do” list, assign a letter to each assignment based on importance. Follow the format: A: Must be done first; B: Should be done; C: Nice to do; D: Delegate to others; E: Should not be done. Be sure to update your list as the day goes on and you complete tasks or receive more assignments.
If it takes two minutes, don’t wait
A cluttered email inbox can get you off-track fast. If replying to or disposing of an email will take you less than two minutes, always do so right away.
Block out time
Tackle your priorities when your energy is high — like in the morning. Choose a few days a week to go into the office early to avoid distractions (and get things done).
