Become of aware of how you schedule and plan your time. Are you a pen and planner person? Do you have a planner that really works for you? Are you a digital diva who lives and dies by her apps? Or do you merely try to keep it all in your head (because, like Sheldon Cooper and Wesley Crusher, you have an eidetic memory)?
The Priority Planning Process is life changing if honestly used. And I do not make that claim lightly. If you actually use the process — and use it regularly, — you are taking action every day towards your goals. You are also living the life you truly value.
The Priority Planning Process (or P3 as it’s sometimes abbreviated) adapts to your needs and planning style. This is the key. You do not have to change your style or method of planning — beyond making lists. I’m a big fan of flexibility and adaptability. Change is inevitable. (The second law of thermodynamics applies to everything.)
There are three essential steps in the process, and a fourth if you want the optimal psychological boost. But more about the fourth step later.
The Essential Steps to the Priority Planning Process
1. Make a To Do list
— Be certain these are tasks that can be completed in the given amount of time. So “Write dissertation” could go on a list of things to do this year but not for today. Today’s task may be “Write 1000 words of my dissertation first draft.”
Roughly 40% of the population make New Year’s Resolutions. The most popular New Year’s Resolutions (in no particular order) are: lose weight, get in shape, spend less (or save more), and make more money. All worthy aspirations. However, they aren’t SMART goals. And because they aren’t SMART, they are usually dumped within 30 days. If we want to actually achieve our goals, we need to make better. We need to make them SMART goals.
Find your focus for the coming year.What do you want to accomplish in the next twelve months? What are your all of your goals?
Go ahead, write it down. Make a list.
Making your list should take 5-minutes or less. However, feel free to put some real thought and time behind your list of goals. In addition, you need to actually write your list because writing stimulates creativity, concentration, and conserves cognitive capacity. (Sorry. I couldn’t pass up the alliteration. I just mean that we have to use less brain energy if we don’t try to remember our lists. It’s like downloading information instead of trying to remember it all.)
Got your list of what you want to do next year? Great!
