I really like getting things done, so when I saw my friend, Graham Edwards’ blog post called, Three Simple Steps for Getting Things Done, I was hooked. I had to see what Graham’s approach would be. I envisioned seeing a quote by Socrates or Plato and some instruction around putting your nose to the grindstone and making a list and checking it twice and perhaps even running it by a contrarian before you call the task complete. What I found was this:

  • Propose what you want to do
  • Debate what you want to do and make a decision how to proceed
  • Execute on what you want to get done, and do it.

I think the most important part of being able to get things done is having a crystal-clear vision of what needs to be accomplished. Without that, it is very easy to get caught up in busy work, or just stagnating. Sometimes people act on half-baked ideas or they completely lack commitment to a particular outcome. That usually means you are going nowhere. Having someone to bounce ideas off of will solve the half-baked issue. Commitment sometimes requires an accountability partner. Having a way of ensuring accountability makes it much easier to effectively execute and complete a task or project. Naturally, I love being able to help people reach their goals.

It seems Graham has given me some food for thought. In fact, I sense another blog series coming on. I think my part will focus on:

1. Ways to figure out what to do when you are unsure of the best course.

2. Planning your attack and staying on track.

3. Pushing past fear and excuses to accomplish all that you set out to do.

What do you say, Graham🐝 Edwards? Are you up to the challenge of clarifying what you mean by "getting things done" and giving out some practical advice?

Renee, I'm looking forward to either a dialogue or a monolog whichever percolates out of this challenge.
