Please note that you have quite the influence over the publication of the book, even though you do not control the process.

That being said, your FAQ is accurate, it just could be better.

3Cs: get clear -|- get current -|- get creative

get clear:

  • 1) Collect Loose Papers, Files and Materials
-- not about collecting backlog get your current briefcase, wallet, desk stuff (suggested 2 minutes)
  • 2) Get your to do lists to zero, schedule them if they can't be completed
-- a mental collection of new projects, action items, waiting fors, someday/maybes etc. Get it off your mind
(suggested 5 minutes to do this)
(she asked her audience about how much they had captured, Mark 23, David 10, Jeb, Sylvana, Jennifer 42)
-- get your ins to zero
-- Do this before your weekly review (Sunday night)

get current:

  • 3) Review all your next actions lists
-- clean it up (suggested 5 minutes)
-- you can do the waiting fors now 
-- calls, computer, etc
  • 4) Review your calendar to capture information from it
-- make sure there are no loose threads. Rescheduling might be needed. (2 minutes)
  • 5) Review your upcoming calendar for things you need
-- (2 minutes on this. Can be more time, capture any actions needed)
-- do you need to block out time to get things done
  • 6) Check the status of things you are waiting for
-- review this as often as you need to. Review what is coming down the pike (2 minutes)
  • 7) Review your Project List and larger outcome list
-- high level at looking at projects
-- everything to a week to 18 months
-- you can do a separate project review


  • 8) Review Checklist that might need revision
--seasonal items
--travel checklists (1 minute review)

get creative:

  • 9) Review Someday/Maybe List
--just see if something pops out (1 minute)
  • 10) Review if you want to add some new projects or directions
--can be done when you are too busy
--be careful of the busy trap
(take about a minute)

3 notes:

  • get a buddy system
  • schedule the next weekly review on your calendar
  • split the review between get clear and get current and creative
