As she evaluated her time in that position and what she was leaving behind, she made notes to herself on what her team had done well or poorly. What made the top of her list?
- To set and stick to priorities, ruthlessly
- To cultivate better digital housekeeping habits
- To always prioritize work on critical documents
- The true potential of the work blitz
- The hidden costs of feeling overwhelmed
My favorite of her suggestions? The work blitz!
1. Pick one thing that really needs attention - whether it's a long unfinished project, a catastrophically messy office or a the research/prep for something new.
2. Clear your schedule and turn off your phone for a day, maybe even two. Kidnap - I mean invite to join you - anyone you need to help you complete the project.
3. Throw all your energy into blitzing that one thing until it's done and can be wiped off your list with a flourish!
Did any of those lessons strike a chord with you?
