We all need ticks for good work. Here's how to give yourself a tick for good work.
Five secrets of success.
First, write a list.
Second, decide what to do first.
Third, highlight that in yellow.
Fourth: Do the task on your list you have highlighted
Five: Then draw a line through it, and give yourself a tick. Simple. And it works.
I write things with action headings: such as Ponder, Talk About, or Buy.
After I have done the task on the list, I draw a line through it;
and then, give myself a tick.
To make your life simple, write a list. Write all the things on your mind. Start each item with an action word, like this:
Talk about - xyz; or
Ponder - abc; or
Write - xxxxx
Call - yyyyy
Communications tip: If you work from home, leave your diary lying about, open, at home, on the kitchen table, so others can see what's on your mind for the day and the week. You can also do this at work. It's a useful way of indirect communication.
You will need a home and work diary.
Leave the work one at work and the home one, at home.
Write in week to a day diary. That show one week to an opening.
Use a 2B pencil and an eraser.
And a yellow high lighter.
Use a rubber band to keep the pages from blowing over
Pin receipts and tickets in, with a pin.
I like the long dress-makers pins for this.
Sometimes, if I feel fancy, I use a red pen to give myself a tick. Or I will use the yellow highlighter to tell myself "work on this one, now".
