How big are the packets?

When I first start working with clients, one of the complaints they often make  is that their projects are not progressing quickly enough. Upon further inspection their diary seems so stuffed full of things that they don’t have time to get anything done in the first place!

Sometimes this problem is due to procrastination, and when that is the case then breaking the overall project down into small packets is a great way to move forward. Small chunks of time that are easy to schedule that have a clear start, middle and end.
These small packets of time work even better when they are done at the start of the working day. You can also put a number of small packets together if you feel inclined.
If you are feeling stuck with your projects then consider re-planning the work and putting it into palatable chunks of work and trying to schedule those instead.

Lists can make life easier

There is a great saying 'it is better to have a short pencil than a long memory'. Getting things out of your head and on to paper can do great things for your own personal productivity.


When you have ideas and tasks crammed into your head then you run several risks:

1 - You might miss the tasks deadline or never do the task.

2 - Your mind will probably be constantly running on overtime just so that you don't forget.

3 - You might miss the other opportunities and ideas that arise.

How you keep your lists and how you choose to use them is up to you. People who are organised, thorough and not bogged down with a thousand things in their heads usually get the job done quickest.

How do you organise your thoughts?
