One of the dependable association and time-administration devices is the trusty old schedule. I was prepared to perseveringly assemble one by the day’s end for the next day, and whatever undertakings I neglected to finish, to convey it forward. This framework has functioned admirably in helping me organize and center. Be that as it may, I have additionally heard a considerable lot of my partners gripe about having excessively on their rundown, and feeling extremely disheartened and overpowered by the sheer number of things on their schedule. To help facilitate the overpower, I need to present the idea of the “Stop Doing” list.
I originally read about the “Stop Doing” list in “Great to Great” by Jim Collins. He expressed that one of the shared traits of the organizations who could drive themselves from being only great to being extraordinary is that they all took a gander at what they were as of now doing that they expected to Stop Doing. I am actualizing this thought in a marginally extraordinary manner, however I think a “Stop Doing” rundown can really encourage your profitability and viability.
So how would you choose what goes on your “Stop Doing” list? This is what I propose you do.
For the following week or two, each time you take a shot at your schedule (and in the event that you are not utilizing one as of now, I unequivocally suggest you begin), or closing off time for particular undertakings in you organizer, make this inquiry: “does this errand include esteem or produce positive outcomes for me and my association?” If the appropriate response is no, it ought to go ideal over your “Stop Doing” list.
In the event that the appropriate response is “yes”, make a second inquiry: “am I the best individual to do this undertaking?” The primary inquiry reveals to you whether you can kill an assignment. This inquiry discloses to you whether you can designate an undertaking. I know for solo-agents, you consequently surmise that you have nobody to designate any undertakings to. In any case, that may not really be valid. Today, there is an entire system of menial helpers who can deal with a bunch of regulatory work for you. Some acknowledge work constantly, and some acknowledge work by the venture.
For a few people, you may need to then conquer your protection from designating. I’ve heard huge numbers of the reasons. Do these sound recognizable?
“When I disclose it to another person, I could have done it without anyone else’s help.”
“I can’t confide in another person to do it right.”
“It is excessively expensive cash.”
A portion of these are totally genuine concerns. In any case, before you expel the thought, think about the accompanying:
Is the undertaking monotonous so that the in advance time venture to prepare somebody is really justified, despite all the trouble 3 months not far off?
Is it accurate to say that you are the most qualified individual to finish the assignment, or would someone be able to else do it in less time with less exertion for better outcomes?
On the off chance that you didn’t need to do the errand, what might you invest that energy in, and what effect will that have on your business, or your life?
In this way, subsequent to thinking about these extreme inquiries, add your assigned errand to your “Stop Doing” list also and send them somewhere else, and I promise you will feel good.
Despite the fact that I composed this article for individuals battling with over-burden at work, a similar methodology can be connected to make a “Stop Doing” list for home. Think about the conceivable outcomes – you can designate clothing, and cooking, and yard work, and cleaning, and what else?
Truly, the current condition of our lives is that there is for the most part excessively to do and insufficient time. In this way, experience this activity at any rate once and see what you can shed from your schedule. On the off chance that you like the outcomes, at that point build up a daily practice and do this like clockwork or a year. The fact is that you need to invest your energy in high effect assignments, and work that you appreciate.
