Are you feeling like there are not enough hours in the day? Is your ‘to do’ list becoming completely overwhelming and unmanageable? Are you procrastinating and getting next to nothing done?
The following exercise will help you regain control of your time and life!
Remember the 4Ds:
What can you dump? What is not truly important to your goals? Dump it!
What is not important right now? Defer it, schedule it for later.
What can you delegate to somebody else? If someone else can do it ‘well enough’, it’s time to delegate. Can you delegate to someone who has strengths aligned with the task or goal?
If the old way of doing things is sucking up your time, is there a different way you could do it? Could you use technology to your advantage? Think outside the box!
The 4D’s can be applied at home, work and to any time management issues that you may be having.
