Chunk It Down: Turning your “To-Do” list into your “Ta-Da” list! #ABCSuccessTip9

Success Tip #9 – Chunk It Down

Chunk It Down: Turning your "To-Do" list into your "Ta-da" list!  #ABCSuccessTip9Turning your “To-Do” List into your “Ta-Da” List!

Ever had so many jobs to do you didn’t know where to start? Or a project so large and overwhelming, you’re still circling it today?

Chunking down may be the answer. Chunking down can help you achieve a deadline, finish a project, tidy a room, get through a large project, lose weight, turn out a fabulous banquet, finish a task, or turn your “To-Do” list into your “Ta-Da” list!

Chunk It Down: Turning your "To-Do" list into your "Ta-Da" list!  #ABCSuccessTip9Chunk It Down

Chunking down takes large, difficult, time-consuming, or overwhelming projects or plans, and breaks them down into small, bite-sized, manageable, chunks or actions. These chunks or actions are then worked through, one-at-a-time, until the task is accomplished or project completed.

By reducing our projects down to a series of small-and-much-more-comfortable-to-contemplate-and-manage chunks we are far less likely to find the task daunting and overwhelming because all we need do is focus on one small, manageable part at a time.

I’ve chunked down everything from creating business plans, building a restaurant, developing and training in time-management, training sales staff, selling investment property over the phone, writing poetry, cleaning house, helping kids with school projects, losing weight, planning holidays and family banquets, writing blogs, building websites, and renovating properties.

With drive and determination we can reduce the largest of projects and goals down to a series of small, logical tasks capable of being worked through one-at-a-time. And sometimes by even the most inexperienced operators.

Chunking down is production-line planning, and it doesn’t get much easier or simpler than that!

 

Chunk It Down: Turning your "To-Do" list into your "Ta-da" list!  #ABCSuccessTip9The Process – Bite-Sized Chunks

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.

1) Break the project, plan or goal down into small, manageable, bite-sized chunks and list them.

2) Prioritise these chunks according to their order of importance. Place important and urgent tasks at top of list. If you’re in business, place important sales calls and all tasks directly related to producing immediate income at the top of your list, alongside lunch and all other urgent and important tasks.

3) Nail your foot to the floor. Work through your list until complete.

4) Rush to medical centre, have tetanus shot, get nail removed!

Run The Day

Chunk It Down: Turning your "To-Do" list into your "Ta-da" list!  #ABCSuccessTip9Run The Day – Either you run the day or the day runs you.

The ‘secret to success’ when chunking down is not beauty, brains, brawn, IQ, EQ or R2D2.

The secret to success in chunking down is drive, persistence, committment and perseverence. Just continue chunking until you’ve worked your way through all the tasks on your to-do list. And don’t stop there. Once completed, select another goal or task and repeat the process.

So get chunking until there’s nothing left to chunk and you’re the one running your days. That’s a great kind of FREEDOM!

To your success,

Keep It Clean! “A place for everything and everything in its place” is good business #ABCSuccessTip6

Success Tip #6 – Keep ‘It’ Clean 

“A place for everything, and everything in its place” is good business.

Keep It Clean! A place for everything and everything in it's place is good business. #ABCSuccessTip6

Keep It Clean

Keep It Clean! A place for everything, and everything in it's place is good business #ABCSuccessTip6 Much has been written on the importance of image and first impressions. So much that I’d have thought there would be hardly any small business out there sporting an untidy shop front, bad phone manner, dirty car, scuffed shoes, tomato-sauce stained shirt, or a faulty link on their website. But there is!

Considering the money it takes to set up and maintain even the smallest business it doesn’t make sense not to tidy it up, prop it up, throw it out, clean it up, wipe it off, hide it, paint it, polish it, fix it, file it or flush it. And how long does it take to fix a broken link on a website?!

For More Space and Time, ‘Keep It Clean’

Keep It Clean! A place for everything, and everything in it's place is good business #ABCSuccessTip6 Mess reduces the space available for us to live or work in. It also wastes our valuable time as we rummage through the mess looking for things lost in the mess.

As a child I had an extremely neat relative who lived in a tiny and sparsely furnished house. Everything in her small house was functional and current, including food, bills and magazines. It was impossible to lose anything in her house.

When visitors would comment on her extreme neatness she would tell them it was because she hated housework with a vengeance, and she kept her house neat to avoid housework! It was always funny to hear her say that.

She would sometimes say she thought it took a lot of energy to be messy because everything takes twice as long to do or find in a messy house.

Her strange logic, “lazy people are neat and energetic people are messy,” has stuck with me for decades. And sometimes I’ll see a situation where I could swear she was right.

Regardless, I think most people agree it’s better to have more space and time available. And if you keep things neat and clean you will.

To Be In The Running For More Business, ‘Keep It Clean’

We’re judged by our appearance, whether we like it or not. In business, our ability to deliver is initially judged according to our appearance and reputation.

Are people being superficial when they judge us this way? Not really. Rapid judgements are essential skills we’ve developed to help us survive and progress as a species. We’re actually making judgements all the time, we’re just not always conscious of them. And most of our judgements are based on our physical senses, observations, personal standards and past experiences.

Because of that people will judge your ability to deliver their quality kitchen based on the state of your overflowing office trash can, or the mess on the back seat of your car from your trip to the beach last week-end.

So if you want to be in the running for more business it’s better to keep it clean!

Keep It Clean! A place for everything, and everything in it's place is good business #ABCSuccessTip6 Clean and Neat Inspires Confidence

The face of your business doesn’t need to be lavish or perfect, but it should be clean and neat.

Your business face is a tool of your trade, and rightly or wrongly it reflects as you, both personally and professionally. Basically, it’s one of the few things the market has to gauge your product or work on.

A clean and neatly presented business face inspires confidence in customers, staff, and us – the owners. What is yours saying about you?

Here’s to keeping it clean, and I wish you continued success,
