When Do I Get to the End?


When Do I Get to the End?

If you have a task list for your business or your workday, and you check everything off by the end of the day, you get to say “I’m finished.” Good for you! But if you have a plan, and every task on your list is aligned with your plan, you realize you not really finished. You understand that you’ve accomplished a part of your plan.

No matter what you do for a living, if you don’t know exactly where you’re going, you’re never going to get there. If I ask you to go buy shampoo, the first thing you do is figure out where to buy it. CVS? Grocery Store? 7-Eleven? Once you decide, you make a plan – take my wallet or just credit card? Keys? Best route to take without too many light?. Cheapest place? The place with the coupon? Do I need anything else while I’m there?

NOW you have a plan and you know where you’re going. Your accomplishment occurs when you get there and buy the shampoo. You do this kind of planning all the time.

So often, when you’re managing your career or your business, you just make the list of tasks you think you need to get done today and never really know what you’ve accomplished. The only thing you’re sure of is that you finished your list for today.

Make a plan. Then at the end of the day instead of being finished, you’ll feel accomplished.
