Dividing your “to do” list.  

Have you ever done it?  

We do this with issues in EOS® and help companies keep their priorities in check. It’s always exhilarating to cruise through many items and find out we’ve solved many and when reprioritized, there are relatively few left to focus on in the near term. 

It’s liberating and provides great relief every time. 

What about for you as a leader? How can you factor yourself and your priorities in the mix? What can you do regarding your own cascading list? In the pursuit of a well lived life, here’s a refreshing approach to moving more to “done.”  Try this: 

“I started dividing my to-do list into 1) things I have to do, 2) things I want to do, and 3) things other people want me to do. Life changing! I often don’t get to #3 and I finally realized… this is what it means to have boundaries.”  

Thank you, Jenée Desmond-Harris!
