So what is this genius productivity tool?
The OnTask is a three-sided desktop task list that forces you to prioritize and accomplish your most important daily goals.
For a limited time, you can download the paper version below. It's a great way to try out the OnTask system before purchasing the physical desktop tool (which I highly recommend btw.)
But I'm all about DIY so why not out the free DIY version and see how you like it.
It's SO easy to make and use. And it's really effective once you incorporate into your routine.
This is how I incorporate the OnTask (or paper download) into my routine to maximize productivity...
1. Get to the office (and grab coffee.)
2. Review my master task list to determine my top three priorities for the day.
3. Write my top three daily goals on the OnTask (or paper download), one task on each side. (Make sure your highest priority task is facing you first)
4. After completing one task, simply rotate your OnTask to your next priority.
5. Erase and repeat!
Important Tip: Don't check your email first thing in the morning!
Why? Because we tend to feel a sense of urgency when we get an email asking for something.
But it’s important to stop and ask yourself, “Is this task really my highest priority?”
The good news is that the OnTask can help you break this self-sabotaging habit.
Writing out your priorities BEFORE checking your email is a great way helps you stay focused on your most important tasks.
If I let incoming emails dictate my entire day, I’d never accomplish anything on my task list.
That’s why it’s important to keep the OnTask on your desk, in front of you, so you stay focused on your high priority daily goals.
