Activity 48 – I have a list of my top 10 productivity related tasks

We’re all busy; even busier these days so it seems, but are you in business or busyness?

It’s very easy to fill our days with non-productive tasks.  Be honest, those tasks such as checking your social media to see who’s doing what; and the internet for how well your team did over the weekend.  Those tasks offer little return to the business, even if they are enjoyable, they don’t bring in cash to the business or get the business moving forward.

When you know your most productive tasks, you can decide which to concentrate on.

If I had a pound for every time someone said to me that they would be concentrating on the key business generating tasks that day; who, when asked to confirm what they had achieved, would look slightly embarrassed and admit they got distracted…. well you know I’d be even more wealthy than I am now.

The HowTo bit:

Let’s keep things simple and start with the list of your productivity related tasks.

As per the previous post ‘HowTo 47’, I enter all my tasks onto the spreadsheet.  For this exercise I use the same spreadsheet and have added another column to list the productivity score which give me the best return for my efforts.

Then it’s a simple exercise of sorting the list to show the highest score in descending order.  From here I pick the top 10 I’m going to focus on.
