Tonight, we're going to talk about prioritization.
I get it, you're a marketer, you're busy.
Every day you either learn the newest hack, manage your team, or start new projects.
That's great, but how do you focus on?
My background is in consulting, where I spent my time with each client and guided them to execute a strategy.
Today, I'm an in-house marketer, and boy, is it different.
There's so much more you can do when you work within a brand, and that's the challenge.
When it comes to prioritizing your projects, how do you do it?
Let me share a few basic strategies.
By the end of this quick post, I hope you will have learned something worth returning for next week.
The first one is pretty straightforward, start (or end) your day without distractions.
You'll want to figure out what you'll want to do in the next few hours.
Whether you're a manager or an operator, winning every day is a great feeling to build up momentum. It can be as simple as 30 minutes of silence (or a dope tech house set in my case) where you plan your day.
Prioritizing should lead to momentum.
We're talking about eliminating distractions and only focusing on what's important.
My goal is to have 3 daily wins (in case I crush one, I have something else of similar importance to tackle).
The next section is all about long-term projects and I call them ''projects'' since those can't be finished in a day.
You may not have time to work on those projects that day, keeping them on your daily to-do list will keep you focused.
Whenever I have time, at the end of days, I always try and squeeze some creative activities before I pass out.
Even reading a chapter in a non-marketing book counts.
Congrats! You're becoming a better marketer.
Wishing you a good rest of your evening, see you next time.
PS: If you're curious, I made my own little to do list (it's still in the works, testing different variations of it but you can get it here for 2,99$ CAD.
