Add One "Win" to Your Task List Every Day
When you prioritize your tasks for the day, you probably categorize them by urgency and importance
We've all had those days where we feel really awesome for finishing a few specific tasks. Sometimes, those tasks are the same as your urgent and important ones, but if they aren't, prioritizing one or two of those tasks could probably make you feel much better at the day's end.
"In this step, you crush your overwhelming list of things to do," says Sources of Insight. "To do so, identify Three Wins for today. Simply think of three things that if you achieved them you would consider them wins for today.
"This is a powerful step because it helps you focus and prioritize on a short-set of key wins for today. This will also help you give more meaning to the things you do. It's a simple way to, as Stephen Covey would say, begin with the end in mind, simply by thinking of Three Wins that you would like to have under your belt today."
Even if it isn't your most important or urgent task, you'll feel a lot more energized (and ready to do more work tomorrow) if you feel like you got something worthwhile done. Hit the link for more to-do prioritizing tips.
