A to-do list creates a clear action plan.
The easiest way to keep on track with my goals is to document them. Listing the required steps allows me to make a detailed plan that will produce a favorable outcome, as long as I follow the steps.
I am able to commit physical and mental resources to anything that I undertake when I focus on taking one step at a time.
To avoid overwhelming myself, I only concentrate on the action item in front of me. My approach is to work productively to achieve the desired outcome. The results from one step provide a path for working through the next one.
I use this approach in both my professional life and my personal life.
At work, my days are successful because I commit to tackling the big things first.
Although urgent projects often come my way, I maintain my composure and focus on mission-critical priorities. I know that the ideal way to be effective at my job is to keep my priorities in mind and follow my to-do list.
In my personal life, I benefit from to-do lists because they enable me to prioritize my spending. I make a list of the things that require money and tackle them in order of importance.
At the end of each month, I am able to look back and feel satisfied with both my personal experiences and professional accomplishments.
Today, I feel proud of my approach to goal setting because it puts me in a great position to be successful. Taking things one step at a time is my formula for success.
