Priorities, lists, and focus

There are many books written about productivity in any given year. The essence of most of these books is as follows –

1. Start with your priorities – the easiest way to get to these is to work backward from what you are seeking to accomplish.

2. Make a list of things you’d like to get done and ensure these are ordered in alignment with your priorities.

3. Block out distractions and focus to get everything you want done as efficiently as possible.

Rinse and repeat.
