Today’s Challenge - Mindset

MIT – Most Important Task

If you’re even remotely interested in productivity, you’ve probably heard the advice to start the workday with your first priority. And if you’ve ever tried it, you know it makes a difference. It makes you more productive because you have more willpower/discipline in the morning; you get fewer interruptions, and when you finish your first hard task, all the following are easier.

What is MIT?

MIT or the Most important task is a simple technique for accomplishing your goals and moving you in the right direction. Your goal for the day needs to be choosing things that need to be done without delay. You can do more tasks except for MITs, but your focus and mental energy must be primarily directed on those few most important tasks.

Challenge for You in 3 Simple Steps

Step 1.

Choose 1 to 3 most important tasks you want to accomplish for the day. Never have more than 3 MITs!

(You can have other tasks on your general To-Do list, but they are not MITs)

Step 2.

Do your MITs first thing in the morning.

This is of the utmost importance because if you put them off for later, you will get busy and run out of time to do them. Accomplish them first thing in the day. Your day will be amazing, and you will feel satisfied and productive from the morning.

Step 3.

At least one of your MITs should be related to one of your goals.

If you have more than one MIT, others can be work stuff, important errands, or something third. But one should be about you and your goals and plans. You can also have all of MITs related to your different goals. This will ensure that you’re doing something every single day to move your goals forward.

 

Additional tip: A productive morning starts the night before, therefore always set your MITs then.

My MITs

I have 3 MITs every single day (including weekends) and they are related to my personal growth.

Usually, they look like this:

MIT 1: Personal growth (writing, reading, learning)

MIT 2: Physical and spiritual health (exercise + meditation)

MIT 3: Business goal (something related to growing my business) 

 

Everything else goes on a general To-Do list, but I never have more than 5 tasks altogether (3 MITs + 2 To-Do tasks). 

 

MIT’s are built into my routine, and they’re accomplished every single day. That makes all the difference in the world. Each day, I do something to make my dreams come true. I recommend you to do the same.

Try at least for 30 days and see the difference in productivity for yourself. You will have a hard time going back to your previous routine once you experience all the benefits of MIT’s. Sometimes small things can make big differences.

If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And If it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.

Final Words

Change starts when you decide to change. You are one decision away from a totally different life.

One day or day one. You decide.
