When new ideas, fresh thoughts, or spectacular opportunities fly by – do we add them to our list?
Not the mental list, but the ‘list’ list, the one we look at daily, our focus.
If it’s too important to forget or miss out on, we should put it on our list.
In the middle?
At the end?
Or on top?
That depends on how busy we are, how important we think it is, and how caught up with and focused we are on today’s priorities.
Everybody needs a system. I like just writing it down, and since I review my list daily, it doesn’t really matter – it just needs to be captured and written down before it escapes my attention. And my attention span is short. The busier I get, the shorter my attention span.
