Ruthlessly Prioritize
Geoff Teehan

Great topic. One simple rule I am still trying to teach myself….


It is too easy to become OCD about prioritizing types of things important to us, then prioritizing projects within those, then tasks within those. I find the ONLY days I get ANYTHING done is when I pick up and DO SOMETHING, ANYTHING, and literally get on a roll of getting things done. Otherwise, I have spent one third my productive life investigating and evaluating tools, one third installing and optimizing them, and one third prioritizing things in them… leaving a big fat 0.0% of the time to DO *anything* out of what needed to be done.

That is still one of the single biggest weaknesses I have… One of these days I will prioritize my list of weaknesses to see which ones to find and evaluate tools to overcome next. [wink].
