Focus your to-do list so it's not an avoid-list?

Writing a to-do list

Raise your hand if you've ever felt overwhelmed by your endless to-do list.

Now raise your hand if some of that overwhelm came from trying to do all the things you thought you 'should' be doing in business.

I'm going to hazard a guess here that 99.9% of people reading this article put their hands up to both of those.


We live in a hustle culture and it's so easy to get caught up in the overwhelm of 'all the business things' that people tell us we 'should' be doing. But here's the truth: not all tasks on our to-do lists are created equal, and not everything on it is essential in your business moving forward.


Instead of leaving you to drown in a sea of tasks, I thought I'd share 3 things that will give focus to your to-do list and make a big impact on your business:


  1. Get Clear on Your Priorities: Take a moment to step back and assess what truly matters. What are your short-term and long-term goals in business and personally? What tasks directly contribute to achieving those goals? By getting clear on these, you'll be able to focus on those tasks that make the difference and push the other tasks way down the list.

  2. Simplify Your Processes: Are there any repetitive tasks, emails or processes that are consuming too much of your time? Look for opportunities to automate or delegate these tasks, giving you back valuable time and energy that can be spent on high-priority tasks.

  3. Focus on Client Experience: Ultimately, the success of your business hinges on your client experience and subsequently your ability to generate revenue. Identify the key activities that directly contribute to this. Do you need to optimise your lead and sales funnel? Do you need to update your client experience mapping? Has your ideal client changed and your messaging needs to be updated? Do you need to nurture your leads and clients better so you can have raving clients? Do you need to update your pricing to match the service you are providing? By focusing on your client experience you can ensure that you're always moving the needle forward.


One thing that we often forget when we're in the trenches of our businesses is that it's not about doing more - it's about doing the things that matter. When you focus your time and energy on the tasks that truly matter, you can break free from overwhelm and propel your business towards success.
