3 Great Results for Today

When I came across this blog entry of J.D. Meier, I know I just find a lamp to lighten up the to-do list fog.
In case you don’t want drill down to the links I gave, the following is the original text. Good for many people. I just started to think about the three great results of mine for today.

What are 3 great results for today?  That’s the question I ask to bootstrap my day.  As simple as it sounds, I find it’s the most effective way to cut through the fog each day.  There’s a lot of things I can do and there’s lots of activities I’ll be doing, but what are 3 great outcomes for today.  That’s it.

This is an example of my 3 great results for this past Monday:

  1. Ship Beta 1 of App Arch
  2. Beta 1 Post for App Arch
  3. Draft of Designing Your Architecture

Great is relative.

Why 3 things?  It forces me to prioritize among a sea of potential results.  Also, I can remember 3 things without writing them down, so throughout my day, I know what I’m working towards.   I can say it in the hall.

If you manage endless to do lists and work on a bunch of stuff but don’t actually get anything done, try focusing on 3 great results each day.  It works.
