The 3-2-1 Method

The 3-2-1 Method of getting things done is perhaps quicker and more effective than any other system I’ve come across.

It’s not for complex tasks but the simple ones that confront you in your daily life which you put off over and over even if they’d only take a minute.

My friend Gina familiarized this method with me back in January and all credit goes to her.

It goes like this:

When confronted with an issue which will only take a moment to resolve yet which you are reluctant to do get in your head for a few seconds.

Count down.

Then do it. Say it. Write it down. Type it. Send it.

At the beginning you might have to count down a few times or maybe count down from ten but I’ve found when I’m stuck on something 3-2-1 gets it done.

What methods do you have to get things done that aren’t to do listing or high setup productivity systems?
