Five Ways To Tackle The To-Do List
High achievers, go-getters, Type-A personalities or whatever you call them, all have one thing in common: they want to do it all--right now. But this approach can be stressful. Follow this five-step process to help you get it all done, with less stress and greater results.

1. Make a mess.
If you're like most high achievers, you likely have numerous sticky notes, lists and piles of papers around your office or on your desk. Each one is meant to help you move forward to reaching your goals; however, as the piles grow, they become overwhelming. Begin by getting all of your ideas and notes in one place. Make a big pile of all the papers and items in the middle of your office floor or on your desk.

2. Sort and purge.
Now it's time to roll up your sleeves and start digging. Go through your pile of "stuff" and look at each item to determine what you should keep and what you can toss. For each item, ask yourself:
  • Is this idea or information still important to me?
  • Can I retrieve this information from elsewhere should I ever need it?
  • Is this information duplicated somewhere else?
  • Will this information or idea help me reach one of my goals?
As you decide which items to keep, put them in separate piles or files as they relate to a particular goal or task.

3. Organize your list.
Look through all your "keep" papers to get clear on which goals are truly important to you and what steps you need to take. Put all your ideas and action items into one organized list, preferably on one page. You don't have to painstakingly detail every action step at this point; the objective is to simply create one coherent "to-do" list rather than have multiple ones floating around your office.

4. Rank the list in chronological order.
Redo your list one more time, now paying special attention to the order in which you feel you should do things. At this point, you can also add more detail to your action items. In other words, you can list not only what to do, but also how to do it, who to call for help, which resources you may need, etc.

5. Get going!
Now that all your ideas are organized, all you have to do is take action and tick off the tasks as they're completed. No more thinking, planning and organizing; it's already done. And most important: no more confusion of what to do when. Just look at the list, take the top task and knock it out. What could be easier?

Mission Complete
This process works for a variety of scenarios, including special event planning, home and family goals, work and business projects, as well as long-range strategizing for professional and personal objectives. It works for anyone who simply wants to end the stress and chaos of having incomplete tasks hanging over their heads.
