PLAN – SCHEDULE - EXECUTE.
Now that you know how to Identify the important component tasks associated with your Goal, and how to attack them chronologically, it is IMPERATIVE that you understand how to get them DONE. The trick to becoming a Time Ninja is SCHEDULING. I know some of you are out there thinking, “I heard of plan and execute, but how did schedule make it into the mix?”
Scheduling is your secret weapon! A plan that fails to be scheduled cannot be efficiently executed. An attempt to execute with out a schedule fails to maximize the plan.
The great news is that by this point in the series you have: (1) a plan, (2) you know the tasks you need to execute, and (3) and you know the order you need to execute them in. HOWEVER, you may have no idea how long a task will take to complete. GUESS WHAT? That’s perfectly fine! As you become more familiar with the types of tasks you need to undertake in your business these activities will either become easier, you will outsource them, or you will develop another approach.
Here are 5 Tips to help you Schedule Your plan so that you can Successfully accomplish your Tasks:
1. Decide how long each task will take
2. Plan you week in advance and look at the time you have available to work on your goal related activities
4. Review your planner each night and review what you have in the day ahead
5. COMMIT TO EXECUTING WHILE BEING FLEXIBLE
In a Nut Shell --
Plan to be prepared or be prepared to fail. Things are always going to come up, you must have a strong foundation with the systems and routines in place that will continue to encourage your growth. If you are struggling with getting things done, give this new system a try. Remember that once you Identify what needs to be done, you can prioritize the tasks and create a chronology of activity. You can then use that chronology to Plan - Schedule - Execute on the completion of the tasks.
Until next time guys..... Keep your eyes peeled for Part 4 of this series!
