How to Prioritize Your To-Do List and Make Massive Progress on Your Big Project

The best way I can think of to talk about how to prioritize your project to-do list is to give you a little peek-behind-the-scenes at my life.

It’s 5:30 pm on a weekday and I’m still tapping away at my keyboard — desperately trying to wrap up the day’s work.

Why?

Well, partly it’s because I’ve been at it since early in the morning and I’m ready for a break.

But mostly it’s because I’m getting incredibly hungry. “Hangry” is the technical term. 😉

Hangry [adjective]: a horrific combination of hunger and anger, resulting in a grouchy, unproductive mood.

When I find myself in a hangry state, I turn to my go-to dinner — pasta.

Fortunately, my husband loves pasta. (I do most of the cooking in our house. I find it therapeutic — except when I’m hangry, that is.)

Today’s article is about tackling your to-do list even when it has you in a terrible mood.

Believe it or not, there are lessons about how to prioritize your project to-do list which you can learn from a plate of spaghetti!

How to love your customers

How to Love What You Do, Love Your Customers, Love Your Results

What’s the key to building the kind of business where you absolutely love what you do, love your customers, and love your results?

  • BIG impact: You want to make a difference, effect change, and watch as people benefit from the work you do.
  • BIG meaning: You want your business to add meaning to your life and the lives of people it touches.
  • BIG contribution: You want to contribute to a cause or a movement — that’s why you bring in revenue.

What’s your BIG?

Lately, I’ve been making this recommendation:

Think carefully about what motivates you before you put the time and effort into growing an online business.

Because the going will get tough. And when the tough times come, your BIG will see you through.
