I am of the mindset that it is impossible to plan anything, solve problems, manage time, or reach goals without having a daily habit of reviewing and tracking your priorities. I mentioned in my previous post that I have had a series of setbacks and that is largely because my daily routine of setting, reviewing and tracking my priorities were neglected and then postponed indefinitely. For the last two days I have been working on getting organized so that I can create a plan to get my medical and financial life back on track and running as smoothly as possible again.
Over the years I have learned many different tools that help to do exactly that and I’d like to share some of the best systems with you over a series of posts that I’ll refer to as The Git’er Done Series. In this series, each blog post will go over one system in detail. Try one or all and see which you like best and standby as I try to combine them all into one easy (and hopefully digital) system.
Initially some are more complicated than others to learn and get started but they all work really well and quickly (about 5-20 minutes a day) once you get the planning stages completed (about 2-5 hours). It may seem time consuming but I can’t stress how helpful this process is. Although I feel like my life has spiraled out of control, these systems work so well, that as I have been reviewing my goals from previous years, I see have met almost all of them even though I got distracted and fell on difficult times.
To make this a bit easier for you all to follow along, I created four worksheets that I reference below and they can be found here. You can either print them out and then fill them in by hand or you can type in your answers in Microsoft Word and then print out the completed copies. Give it a shot and let me know what you think in the comments below. Also, let me know if you think a corresponding YouTube video would be helpful.
Here we go….
