Hello there, and good morning! I was chatting with one of my clients yesterday and she had a lot of things on her desk.
Just sort of like I do, I’ve got a lot of things on my desk – a lot of things to do. She was a bit overwhelmed and that’s a normal feeling when you have a lot to do.
So, here’s a quick and easy process on how to get all that stuff off your desk. Or if you’ve got a lot of tasks on your to-do list of how-to just work your way through them.
So, here’s a quick way. I call it the four D’s.
The first D is – “Do it so”. If the task can be done in 10 minutes or less, just do it.
Don’t handle the piece of paper twice. Pick up the piece of paper with something that can be knocked out.
Something that’s got to be like a quick phone call, something that can be done in 10 minutes or less. Just do it. Just get it off. Get it done. Put it behind you.
The second is – “Dump it”. So, there are some things on your desk that you might, as well, just put in the trash.
You’re never going to do it. It’s not going to happen, it doesn’t need to be done, it just needs to be trashed. Just dump it. So do it or dump it. That’s the first two D’s.
The third one – is “Delegate it”, or outsource it. So, if there’s something on your desk, that you’re not the right person to do or that somebody else should be doing, then delegate it to the appropriate person, or outsource it to the appropriate person.
Whatever that would be, so you gotta do it, dump it or delegate it.
And the fourth one is “Delaying”. Now, what does that mean?
Well, either schedule a time to work on it in your diary, or your calendar or put it on your Sunday.
Maybe, file it now, if you don’t have a Sunday. Maybe file that’s something, I’d recommend that’s a project or something you want to work on, or something, that may, but you’re not going to do it now, for whatever reason.
Maybe it’s going to be too much money or too much time or you’ve got other priorities. Whatever it is, you’re going to delay it.
So, there you have it. It’s a quick tip on how to clean up your desk, and get your to-do list in order. Do it, dump it, delegate it, delay it to handle the four D’s.
And, I think, you’ll feel more productive. And you’ll get it behind it. It’s a great time of the year to do it – we’re starting in the summer!
Until next time!
All the best
