Happy Monday…the start of another week!
I begin every new work week updating my lists. I keep two lists, one for general to-do items, and a second for my weekly sales objectives. And I don’t keep either list on a computer or electronic device.
I believe the simple act of putting pen to paper makes my goals more meaningful. Writing things down increases my commitment to the cause. These lists also become an important visual representation of my weekly progress.
I compose my weekly to-dos on a flip-chart, and I write my sales objectives on a paper form. I usually keep completed flip-chart pages around for a few weeks, and I file the sales forms in a binder. The completed lists become a source of inspiration, and have often led to new ideas (and new lists!).
I’m currently renovating my office, which got me thinking about the future state of these lists. I’m considering the purchase of an “old school” overhead projector to replace the flip-charts. I like keeping things decidedly low-tech, especially since I already spend so much time on the computer 🙂
Now it’s time to start my week. At least I can cross item #1 off my to-do list (write new blog post)!
