Projects vs. To Dos

One of the biggest takeaways from my workshop on Thursday with executives and entrepreneurs was this…

There is a big difference between projects and “to dos.” Many people lump them all into one category, become overwhelmed with the work, and get frustrated when “to dos” don’t get done.

Calling your insurance agent to add a new company vehicle is a to do. Creating copy for a website revision is a project. The latter demands allocating time, putting it on your calendar as a client meeting (with yourself), and perhaps leaving your office so you won’t be distracted.

Don’t confuse the two. They have very different priorities and implementations. In fact, many of the former can be delegated. The later require rime and intentional action.
