Create Business Leverage by Harnessing the Power of Completion

Jeff Olson in his book The Slight Edge describes how uncompleted tasks are a part of our lives that tend to block our momentum and keep the past alive. This can affect our business lives and prevent our business opportunities from growing as fast as we would like them to.

To free up your energy and space for creation I suggest taking an inventory of the things that are or feel “incomplete” in your life and your business. For each one ask yourself if it’s something that is really useful and makes you happy. If not, consider if you can simply eliminate it and let it go. If it is useful then ask yourself if you can delegate it to someone else. With the remaining tasks prioritize them based on degree of importance and urgency and manage them actively to completion using your daily task manager and a model like Stephen Covey’s Urgent/Important Matrix from his book the The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

A daily discipline of urgent completion of important tasks first will help you to empty your cup and fill it with more ideas and energy to create and stay ahead of the competition.
