My Objective Convince you that the method of accomplishing tasks that I will explain today is the fastest method to getting things done

Do you have too much to do? Are there enough hours in the day to get done what you need to? Do you feel stressed all the time? Do you feel like you are falling further and further behind?

Important - Urgent Important/ Not Urgent Important/ Urgent Not Important/ Not Urgent Not Important/ Urgent

Fastest Method to Getting Things Done Its as easy as A, B, C, D, or E Eight steps to incredible accomplishment

Fastest Method to Getting Things Done Step 1 - Make a list of all the things you have to do Step 2 - Put an A, B, C, D, or E, according to the following: A - a task you have to do, there will be serious consequences if you do not do it B - a task it would be great to do, there will be some consequences if you do not do it C - a task that would not make a difference if it was not done, a waste of your precious time D - a task you should delegate, do not do this task if someone else can E - a task you should eliminate, do not do these tasks

Fastest Method to Getting Things Done contd Step 3 - transfer all the As to another new list Step 4 - on the A list, put a 1 next to the most important task, put a 2 next to the next most important task and so on until all the tasks are labeled with numbers. Step 5 - stick with the A1 task until you have finished with it. Do not go on to another task until you have finish A1

Fastest Method to Getting Things Done contd Steps 6 to n - do tasks A3 to An in order, stick with each task until it is done Step n+1 - when all the A tasks are done, go on to the B tasks using the same method Step n+2 - when all the A and B tasks are done, you are done

Takeaways There is no other method that you can use to get tasks done quicker Prioritize by importance first and urgency second Never do a task that is unimportant, even if it is urgent Never do a B task when there is an A task undone Never do C, D, or E tasks Doing important tasks that are not urgent is what you are aiming for

Final Thought This is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or use it for good. What I do today is important, because I am exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, leaving in its place something that I have traded for it. I want it to be gain, not loss; good not evil; success not failure; in order that I shall not regret the price I paid for it. - Author Unknown
