What are the six most important things you are going to do tomorrow?
The Ivy Lee Method
100 years ago Ivy Lee was a productivity consultant- before that was really a thing! He shared some advice which many still use today. You too can apply the Ivy Lee method… Before you finish work or go to bed today, write down the 6 most important things that you will do tomorrow.
Tomorrow, do them! Don’t let anything else distract until you have ticked off those 6 things.
If at the end of the day there are tasks remaining undone – great you have the start of tomorrow’s list!
Too many things to do?
There are three kinds of people:
- Those who remember everything that needs to be done – and keep all the thoughts on their head.
- Those who rely on other people to remind them when they overlook something important
- Those who have a trusted system (outwith their head) and capture and sort their to-dos, and do and review their tasks!
Back in February 2001, nearly 20 years ago, I registered the domain name itsforministry.org – IT’s for Ministry. Initially this was a place to host “Talks to Children”. Talks2Children.itsforministry.org is still there, with some Children’s Address type ideas. It hasn’t been updated for a while!
IT, Information technology has supported the ministry of the Church in many ways in recent decades, and now in the midst of the Covid19 outbreak we are making use of various virtual mission and pastoral opportunities for Church.
I’ll post some helpful links and tips here… as we negotiate steep learning curves… into the world of Digital Ministry.
Had second thoughts about that Facebook post, just noticed a typo, spelling mistook, or the effects of auto-correct?
