Overcoming Overwhelm

When there’s too much to do and not enough time to do it, this is what I do:

  1. Make a list
  2. Sort my list into highest / medium / lowest priority by marking each item A, B, C.
  3. If there are too many A’s and they all feel important, I HIME (High Impact, Minimal Effort) the list:
    • Give each one’s Importance a value from 1-10 (where 10 is Most Important)
    • Give each one’s Ease a value from 1-10 (where 10 is Easiest)
    • Multiply the two numbers
    • Do the list from the highest to the lowest number value

This creates a simple plan of attack and eases my mind. I am then able to power through the list and get a lot done!
