Today you have a list; whether a big list or a small list, you have a list of things to accomplish today. Some of you are reading this right now instead of working on your list. Others have already begun working on their list and they are halfway done. Still others are retired and there only list is golf—if so, enjoy your day.

Each of us awake to a list of things we are going to accomplish in a given day. I wanted to share some tips to get your list done. A list of suggestions are below to help you “Get it done!”

How to “Get it done!”

  • Turn off social media – Take a break for a set period of time and get away from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, etc. The biggest, at least for me, is not getting taken into the “YouTube Vortex” of countless videos.
  • Get away from your computer – Write in a journal or legal pad then come back and type it. Getting you away from the computer allows you to get away from those email popups.
  • Work 30, Off 10 – Take 30 minutes and work on one item from your to do list and then take a break for 10 minutes. Work 30, Off 10. Walk away from your desk and take a break, but remember work an honest, hard 30 minutes.
  • Start small – Start with the smallest item on your to-do list and work to the largest. Small victories gain momentum.

Give these simple steps a try and let me know what you think. How did they work for you?

Just some thoughts for today,
