Over the years of owning a business, we’ve looked for ways to streamline our processes and tackle our to-do lists without feeling overwhelmed. We found a Busy Boss Hack: Choosing our Top 3 Priorities. We’re so excited to share how this hack has helped us!
Let’s be honest, the to-do list is forever growing but by being a bit more intentional with how you manage it, it won’t be as overwhelming as it once seemed.
The most productive way to check things off the list for us has been naming our Top 3 Priorities for each day. These are the three items that we tend to first. Sure, each day we are capable of finding task after to task that we need to tackle. By focusing on our Top 3 Priorities, we can decipher where our focus should be and feel a great sense of accomplishment once crossing them off our lists.
Writing out Top 3 Priorities:
We run our business with a block schedule in mind. We know Monday’s are for social media clients, sourcing props for photo shoots and getting prepared for the week. Tuesday’s are our photo shoot days, etc. First, we place this block schedule in our Daily Planners and then map out each day with our Top 3 Priorities listed first and everything else listed below. If all we accomplish is our Top 3 Priorities, then that day is considered a WIN in our book!

Look back on the week and see how productive you were at completing each of those tasks. Be sure to share on social media.
