Have you ever contemplated a project or multiple projects you wanted to compete and thought, how in the world am I ever going to get these done with everything I have going on right now?
Welcome to the first video in the Mindfully Organized 2 Minute tip series. In today’s episode I am going to give you some tips to getting those projects you have been hoping to do, finished and reduce your stress at the same time. Sound too good to be true? They actually go hand in hand.
First thing, first, is to GET IT ALL OUT OF YOUR HEAD.
Your brain can’t focus when it has to remember too many things all at once! So pull out your computer, your journal, your favorite to-do-list program, mind-mapping software, poster board and pens whatever works for you and start downloading.
This is not the final list you will be working from it doesn’t have to be perfect this is just a brain dump. Get it out where you can see it.
You will find that for the next day or so you will need to add things to the list as your brain processes. Get your project chunked into small actionable tasks.

Now the key to choosing what to do next is to ask yourself a couple of key questions. The same kind of questions I ask my coaching clients.
~What has an immediate deadline? ~What is most important to move the project along? ~Can I concentrate on just one project?
If you have a really old project hanging over your head ask yourself, do I really want to do this project? What is getting in my way?
Now schedule for the coming week at least one task per day. If you are working on your business, I actually suggest 3 tasks per day. Before you know it the project will be done.
What do you think? What have you found to be the best way to get projects started and rolling along? Leave me a comment below.
