The website LifeHacker recently posted on a concept that can be very helpful to managing your time and increasing productivity, the concept is: the focus and ignore lists. The website explains that these two lists can help you narrow down what you should spend your time on each and every day. Read the excerpt below, answer the questions and make your own focus and ignore lists to better manage your time and grow your business.
List 1: Your Focus List (the road ahead)
What are you trying to achieve? What makes you happy? What’s important to you? Design your time around those things. Because time is your one limited resource and no matter how hard you try you can’t work 25/8.
List 2: Your Ignore List (the distractions)
To succeed in using your time wisely, you have to ask the equally important but often avoided complementary questions: what are you willing not to achieve? What doesn’t make you happy? What’s not important to you? What gets in the way?
Have you created these lists before? What is your biggest focus each day? What do you work hard to ignore?
