  • Article: I’ve had this one in my files so long I can no longer find the source. The more you can break down a task into steps the greater chance of completion. One strep at a time and we can get there.



“I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.”

The characteristic of great innovators and great companies is they see a space that others do not. They don’t just listen to what people tell them; they actually invent something new, something that you didn’t know you needed, but the moment you see it, you say, ‘I must have it.’

Treat Every Task as Three Steps, Not One

Most managers complain of not having enough time. They rush through tasks so they can move on to the next thing. But this kind of haste creates more chaos than it avoids. Instead, approach every task in three parts:

  1. Prep-Do-Review. Spend a minute or two, or even a few seconds, thinking about what you’re going to do before you do it. Ask yourself what you’re trying to accomplish and who should be involved.
  2. Then, do the task.
  3. Once completed, think about what you did and what happened. What did you learn? What will you do differently? Being thoughtful allows you to accomplish more with each task. You may not be crossing things off your to-do list faster, but you’ll find you have more control over the results.
