Tick Achieve. How To Get Stuff Done

1 636 р.

How many times have you thought of something crucial to do and then forgotten it completely? That's why people invented lists

After all, the only point of a list of things to do, is to get things done

And so we have refined the art of list writing to allow for about ten or twenty things to do

And very useful they are too

BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE «I'm too busy, I’m in a meeting»: professional time wasting and how to avoid it Teams; what’s the point? The problem with the business world: other people How to think more and worry less How being organised lets you take it easy Action not activity Outcome not output «If I do x, then y will happen…' 2

But in truth, most lists are rubbish

Concentrate on the things that matter, and leave out the trivia and irrelevant

If, and only if, they are used effectively

In a business context, and personally

It shows you how to get stuff done, with lots of little techniques tried and tested on scores of individuals over 25 years

It’s all about details, and they can be very easy to implement

LEAVE IT OUT Less really is more How eliminating issues gets to faster answers in business Write a list of what you are not going to do Improving your time management Simplifying everything Being totally objective about the past How leaving it out forces the issue 4

LOOK LIVELY! The value of energy: in business, and in life generally Getting your attitude right Why lazy people are unhappy people Speed, that’s the thing Spotting pointless people Ditching the time wasters Don’t waste time yourself: beware aimless net surfers Cuttin

Learn how to celebrate little bits of progress, look down your list, tick off a job well done, and shout Tick Achieve! EXAMPLE CHAPTER OUTLINE 1

Little things can make a massive difference

ONE IN A ROW How breaking big problems down into small tasks really works How to eat an elephant — in stages Knock 'em down one at a time Rapid sequential tasking: an alternative to multi-tasking The one-touch approach Tick, achieve, move on 5

Once you get the hang of it, life gets easier

Put thirty things on a list, and it becomes too daunting

Put three things on, and there’s no point in having a list

Randomly assembled, they do little to help the author navigate their way through the maze of stuff to do

STRAIGHT TALKING AND GETTING STUFF DONE Permission to talk straight Cliché and jargon red alert list How to get to the point and get everything done quickly Some ways to say no politely How to liven up boring meetings Spotting business bull**** Cutting through it and moving on 3

The author has trained hundreds of people in the art of getting stuff done

There is no Big Plan as such (contrary to what many other books suggest)

This includes the cathartic and highly effective process of writing a list of what you are not going to do

Tick Achieve does just that

You can sleep better and worry less
