The short answer is that you might be ready to learn Taskology because what you’re currently doing in your workday ISN’T working any longer. But let me ask you a few questions to get to the bottom of this.
Think about how you’re spending your time, energy and effort in your typical workday. Do you feel proactive or reactive? Do you feel in control or chaotic? Do you spend a lot of time looking for things, like documents, emails, to-do lists or files? Do you feel as if your day is perforated by interruptions and lost to distractions? Do you have trouble prioritizing what to do and wonder what to do next once you finish a task? Are you spending a lot of your day re-reading or reviewing emails you’ve seen before, but don’t know how to manage?
Next, consider the results you’re getting. Do you miss out on business opportunities or feel you’re always one step behind? Do you delay results or revenue because you’re forgetting follow-ups, losing information or missing deadlines? (FYI: This may show up with apologies to others if you’ve taken longer than expected to follow-up or send deliverables that were promised.)
And finally, think about how you feel during a typical work day. Do you leave the office on most days disappointed that you haven’t made more progress on your to-do list? Do you feel stressed out or overwhelmed? Do you feel like you’ll never catch up? Are you frustrated, sad or angry?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions and you’re nodding your head affirmatively , the next questions to ask yourself are: Do I want to work more efficiently to save more time, energy and effort? Do I want to work more effectively so I’m in control, confident and ready for anything? Do I want to go home each day feeling productive because I accomplished important tasks, kept up with my email and used my time wisely?
If you’re saying “YES!” to these questions, then you have an opportunity to radically increase your levels of efficiency, productivity, progress and results with Taskology.
