Scissors – how to simplify your life

Scissors – How to Simplify Your Life

  1. List your routine tasks/activities.
  2. Estimate how much time you spend monthly (daily x 30; weekly x 4; quarterly/4) on each one.
  3. Why are you doing each one? How does it tie into your Life Purpose/Plan?
  4. Is it worth the time you’re spending on it?
  5. To what Objective/Goal is it related?  (If not related, spell it out…or cut it out)
  6. What will happen if it’s not done?
  7. What is its classification and priority? (Important + Urgent = I)
  8. Does it need to be done to the degree/standard to which you’re doing it? (How do you know?)
  9. Is there anyone else who could do it?
  10. When do you do each task? Why then? (deadline, habit, etc.)
  11. On what is each dependent (someone else’s work, something arriving in the mail, etc.)
  12. What makes it easy/fun or difficult? (quiet, missing pieces, interruptions, etc.)
  13. Is there any other way to do it?
  14. Can you combine or group it with any other tasks?
  15. When would be the ideal time to do it?
  16. Can you joyfully embrace the task as God’s will for you?
  17. IF so, schedule the task, or place it on an appropriate list.
  18. Evaluate each non-routine or new task/activity in light of your objectives before you commit to it (See Priorities and Will of God)
