The Best Way To Prioritize Your Big Goals

Looking for ways to prioritize your BIG goals when there is so much other stuff going on? I get asked this all the time, so today I am going to talk about how to take really big projects and organize and focus to actually get them done.

There’s been a lot going on in my life this summer. Business-wise, we have a huge Classy Career Girl project. My brother is getting married, it’s my daughter’s last summer before Kindergarten, I have a one-year-old, and I need to make time to take care of myself, too.

One of my strengths in the Strengths Finder is actually focus, so this is an area where I really do well. Today, I am going to share my organizational tips for hitting those big goals.

The Best Way To Prioritize Your Big Goals

Large projects can get overwhelming. This is how I tackle big projects, like redoing our membership site workbooks, which I have been working on over the last few months.

Lesson 1: Break it into sections and create tasks

Instead of trying to tackle the whole project, break it into pieces. So, for the recent project I am working on, I started by brainstorming all of the tasks that need to be done by July 10th. Then, I brainstormed all the tasks that need to redone by July 31st, and I put those into Asana. Then, I created all the tasks before Sep 26th, which is when we re-open to our waitlist. Once that was all done, I was able to categorize what was the most important task to work on. It feels so much more manageable this way. 

Lesson 2: Only work on one thing at a time

You have to let some stuff go. Don’t go to the next thing until your main important task is done. I set three priorities per week, and I have to let other stuff go while I focus on those tasks. When I was working on redoing the workbooks, I didn’t go to the next task until I got all of the workbooks done. When I have a big project, I have to let other things go. So, I might have to let my Instagram posts go to focus on the one big task so I can check that big thing off the list. 

Lesson 3: Set deadlines for tasks in your project

What is your first priority? I set up projects in Asana by calendar view. So each project has a calendar and due dates. Then every week when I do my planner, I review what needs to get done that week and what I have gotten done the past week. Make sure to create deadlines for each little tasks so you can make sure you hit those big goals.
