How to organise you’re to do list
 
A simple way to do this is with 3 easy steps “TO DO, TO DATE & TO DELEGATE” this will help you keep focus as to what needs doing and prioritise your business’s critical work.
 
TO DO
 These are task’s that have to be done straight away the urgent Business critical work, the work that has been agreed to a time frame/deadline,  i.e. calling that all important client or Potential Client back. 
 
TO DATE
Tasks like updating your website/Blog, monthly invoices. Anything that can be scheduled – set yourself time frames and stick to them.
 
 TO DELEGATE
Anything that may not necessarily needs to be done by you but is still just as urgent.  These tasks should be delegated to an employee or Virtual Assistant/PA.  Tasks that you can delegate are for example, ensuring that invoices are going out on time, chasing the late payers, your Social media updates, making travel plans and diary management,  this then frees up your time to be better spent on what your good at, growing your business and making more money.
 
When writing your to do list remember you need to be Flexible enough to adapt your ‘to do list’ at a moment’s notice for anything that may arise in your day.  That sudden call or work that may come through that the client ‘wanted done yesterday’ or is extremely urgent.
 
Re organise your ‘to do list’ at the end of each day, spend 5 minutes at the end of your working day reorganising and re assessing your  ‘to do list’ this way tomorrow  when you start your working day you have a clear focus as to what needs to be done.   By making another ‘to do list’ before finishing work each day, you can considerably reduce your stress levels, as you can have a relaxing evening by  forgetting about work,  and not trying to remember what you need to do the next day.
 
Plan your working day and your life,  develop a system or method  that works for you and is easy to keep up to date more important relevant to your needs.
 
It should be a tool to assist your working life and not become another Chore.
