How long is your ‘to do’ list? We’re a busy bunch here at WDL and all of us usually have more than one project on the go at any one time. Then there’s the things on the list that have been there a while… generally speaking, it’s something that has been hindered for some reason, maybe a question needs to be answered to complete what needs to be done. Perhaps the task needs a little extra thought and there just hasn’t been the time. There’s always a reason to put some things off.
My job naturally involves some things that could be viewed as a little tricky. If a client has forgotten about an invoice, it’s part of my job to give them a nudge. Putting this off helps no-one. There might be a problem, perhaps – and I hope not – a client who is late paying has a genuine issue that needs to be resolved before they can pay. I can help sort that out, but only if I know about it. Or maybe their ‘to do’ list has started to resemble The Complete Works of Shakespeare and I just need to remind them that our invoice should be in the next act.
Putting things off can be dis-conducive to a healthy state of mind. I always find it easier to complete the tasks that need extra thinking time if I clear the deck of the smaller but lower-priority tasks as often as I can. I’m setting aside half an hour a day this week to tidy up my to do list – will you join me?
