I had the good
fortune of training under a man who shared how to use this
structure daily in order to get things done. Let’s examine the 5
building blocks of this structure.
Keep a pad or notebook with you during the day. On this pad, your
need to have written down the tasks you scheduled for today. As you
see other tasks that need to be accomplished, add these to the list
you created. This list is your daily task bible. Keep it with you
After putting all these tasks on your list, enter the deadline for
each item. For instance, you have 2 scheduled meetings tomorrow.
Put the time allotted for each on your schedule. You may have other
items that do not have a deadline. Schedule the rest of the
items on your list, in the order that you want to accomplish them.
Be accountable for getting these tasks completed. Remember that the
reason you are using this system is to get control of the “time
dragon.” Because you have your plan in writing, you have
a guide to keep you on track. Using your list, you will not miss
doing something unless you neglected to write it
When you complete
a task, cross it off with a single line so you can see that it is
done. You may be pulled away by events or people during your day.
Once that issue is resolved, go back to your list, and pick up
where you left off. Be sure to schedule some down time so you can
rest. By not scheduling down time, you run the risk of being
At day’s end, review your list. What did you accomplish? What did
you not accomplish? How can you stay focused in order to do better?
Who do you need to get involved to help you achieve your

Organize, Schedule, Execute, Review, and Repeat; is designed to
make you more productive. Using this process also allows you to
schedule some down time to refresh and renew. Because your list is
visual, it is easier to stay focused and on track.
If you want to
slay the “time dragon,” get more things accomplished
by meeting your deadlines, stay organized so that you are both
focused and productive, and have more enjoyable family time, you
need this process!
