You can’t do every task or project equally which is why we choose the small tasks when we’re in the accomplishing mood.
The secret is to break big tasks and projects into smaller ones — as many as necessary with the goal of completing the entire thing.
You can reserve a meeting room for a team meeting easily enough and check it off the list but planning an entire conference requires many smaller tasks.
Achievers know just working on big tasks will not lead to completing them adequately. They divide the tasks into smaller tasks and then check them off.
The key to productivity is to do only that which brings you 80% of your goal and not try to do everything.
Multitasking is a waste of time.
When a task is large, divide it up into sub-tasks and attack them one by one.
