How do you prioritize your tasks/projects for the day/week? Do you use any special methods or frameworks?
Yes i do use a frame work. I do jobs only i can do. Jobs that take the least amount of time get done first. Team does everything else.
I usually plan activities per month and break it down into weekly set of activities. There are no special methods or frameworks that I used.
I myself am handling 10+ projects at a time, so good planning and time management is key. In our team we use Slack, Dropbox, and Skype as main tools for project management, which helps with communication. <br/><br/>Eisenhower matrix also works wonders for prioritisation 🏃🏃<br/><br/> For personal time management, here are my “keys to success”:<br/>- Make sure to dedicate 15-30 mins every beginning and end of the day to planning and prioritisation.<br/>- Take a short (walking or standing) break every 2 hours to refresh the mind, connect with people and refill on the water/ coffee.</br>- Dedicate time for offline work.
When I worked with my coach she always spoke about prioritising and how to make that work. So I look at making sure that I work on something for my business first, whether that's a blog post, social media content - just so I am always moving my business forward first - then it will be client work and times to go through emails, facebook group conversations etc.
I use an online task management app, schedule tasks based on urgencies and scope, note deadliest deadlines for tricky ones, tick each one off as I complete.
Lists! It drives my partner crazy. I write a list for everything- shopping, holidays, work etc. That and I use Asana, a great project management tool to better organise my day. It’s also a good tool to let my clients know what I’m doing.
Yes, I have tasks set up through the CRM everyday. Making sure you write out your tasks at the start of your day and at the end of your day to prep your next day.
I use two things. A to-do list and Agile framework. These two frameworks, when done right, are more than enough to structure your tasks and projects throughout the day and of course your week.
I believe in planning and then execution. We meticulously work and keep a check on our weekly planners and timelines.
I use a block schedule to manage my time, and a running to-do list to make sure everything is always done on time.
We have laid down processes to follow wherein we make sure that every client’s work is incorporated in a seamless manner. Each assignment holds equal weight for us. We have tools and technologies that we rely on to execute and take every tasks to completion. We extensively use the frameworks like Google Drive, Google Sheets, Google Keep which prove to be very efficient tools.
I follow a strict but simple routine. I start my day early, at around 5:00 am in the morning and spend an hour working out while reading business news. After checking my meeting schedules I make a priority list of tasks to be accomplished. I use Hubstaff as a project management tool and make sure to respond to emails by the end of the day, unless an urgent response is needed.
