We are all desperate to maximize our efficiency!  To be efficient, you must really use your to-do lists as an engine that drives your productivity!

To make your list system work for you, follow these 8 guidelines:

1. Make and /or review your daily list each night before.

2. Have several lists ideally, a daily, weekly, monthly, 1 year, 5 year.  Have your daily list on one page and update it throughout the day.  Redo it each night on a clean sheet for tomorrow, and discard the old one at end of day.

3. Use columns.  Make a second page with four wide columns across the top: 1 week, 1 month, 1 year, 5 year, so you are always thinking about your goals and directing all your efforts to achieve them.  This is THE WAY to make money.  Lots of it, too!

4. Prioritize your lists.  Make your daily list chronological by hour, 7am to 7pm, top to bottom.  Give each task an END TIME too!

5. Follow your list, but don’t become tied to it.  Be flexible.

6. List tasks, but list Projects too.  Projects are your most important topics.  Give End Dates to Projects.

7.  Focus on results, not actions.

8.  Learn from your list.  Create it, add to it, review it, delete from it, all as you go.  Make it serve you!
