Your Two-List Strategy

Updated: Oct 27, 2018

I'm stealing a page from Warren Buffet this morning.

1. Make a list of 25 goals in your life.

2. Now circle your top 5. Great, those are your current focus.

3. But, here is where his strategy gets interesting. The other 20? According to Buffet, "Everything you didn’t circle just became your Avoid-At-All-Cost list. No matter what, these things get no attention from you until you’ve succeeded with your top 5.”

In that vein, I've been numbering my priorities each week. It's hard. I catch myself working on an easier #10 at the expense of an essential #2. I'm slowly breaking this habit, starting with awareness. 

As working moms, focusing need to be our superpower. So try it. Start with your daily goals. Then weekly. Then life. 

What's on your avoid-at-all-cost list?
