    Clearly defined and realistic to-do list, outsourcing, a well planned "to-don't" list and time away from the computer are the pieces that seem to work best for getting stuff done for me!

    I feel like I'm drowning and I thought it would be getting easier but so far not seeing any evidence of that.

    Help!
    Chet Holmes, in a lovely book titled "The ULTIMATE Sales Machine", reveals the 'secret' to getting it all done.

    He says mastery in marketing doesn't come from doing 800 things once - it comes from doing EIGHT things... one hundred times each!

    That 'a-ha' message changed the way I worked.

    The key then becomes identifying the IMPORTANT eight things. The rest is easy!

    Hope this helps

    All success

    And therein lies the perfect answer to your question. Sure, I could add my own two cents. But why mess with prefection?

    Dr. Mani is the guy in the know, for sure!

    My new daily mantra: Decide and do.

    Try no less than 3 and no more than five things a day to start.


    To paraphrase George Harrison, tell yourself: I got my mind set on DO!

    I've learned that I had to make trade-offs. I had to let go of "lesser-important" goals or objectives so I can focus more time on my new great-big objective.

    Great ideas, guys! I think having a "To-Do List" is the key to getting things done and maintaining your sanity. I believe Jez uses the same system Lynn usually recommends . . . create your "To-Do List" and smake it a habit of completing 3 task a day that will move you closer to your goal(s).

    I think that's sound advice . . . now I'm going to go and use it!!!!
