Getting to It!

Have you ever wanted a strategy to accomplish the important, handle the urgent, and remove the unnecessary?

They ask a series of questions that most of us can easily understand: 

"How busy are you? In the daily struggle to get it all done, what are you forgetting? Is your mind constantly racing through lists of all the things you could and should be doing? Does your day often feel as though you’re treading water in an ocean of rushes and deadlines, trying to keep from drowning while handling the increasing demands of your work and life?"

Don’t give up—help is on the way.

Business authors, Jones Loflin and Todd Musig, put together a helpful list in their book, Getting to It!, to help you get to your most important thing, or IT.

  1. Define IT: Let your first IT be to stop and identify your filters to find IT.
  2. Believe IT: Whatever IT is, rarely gets accomplished without the will to make IT a reality.
  3. Communicate IT: Many are the plans and few are the successes of the person who has dreams but tells no one about IT.
  4. Plan for IT: ITS rarely scream at us. They wait patiently behind everything else.
  5. Do IT: Work is required if IT is to get done.
  6. Do IT again: A successful life is a succession of successful ITS.
  7. Working with others on IT: Most ITS will requires some level of "buy in" or participation from others.
