Are You an Inbox Type of Person?

Are you an inbox type of person, someone who works on whatever is dumped on you? If you are . . .  STOP! You only have so much time, so you must carefully choose what work you will and will not do. We are talking about your time, so it is your responsibility to manage it, not someone else’s. You are responsible for your own time management and prioritization management, so do not allow others to dictate your life and your schedule.

Before starting a new task just because someone asked you to, you need to look at each item to decide whether or not it is worth your time. Stop and ask yourself several questions.  1) Is it important?  2) Am I the right person for this task? 3) Should I say no?

Each day, you need to evaluate and prioritize everything that you do or are expected to do. How do these items align with your personal goals, priorities, and mission? Think before you work.


You have a choice, and the choice is yours.
