Always Complete Your "T-O-P-3"

We all have to-do lists. But sometimes (often?) the things on our lists never seem to get off our lists. That's where the "T-O-P-3" comes in.

The way it works is this:
  • Identify three of Today's Overriding Priorities - that is, your T-O-P-3 things to complete today, no ifs, ands, or buts.
  • Don't end your workday until you do complete them.

Can it get any simpler than that?!

Each morning (or the night before) write down your T-O-P-3 for the coming day. Then, go do them.

No excuses, justifications, or rationalizations allowed. No complications, turn-of-events, or surprises matter. Notwithstanding anything else that does or does not happen - or anything else that you do, or do not, do - these are Today's Overriding Priorities. Period. Paragraph. Post.
