A Useful Groundhog Day Type To-Do List

J.T. O’Donnell, CEO of CAREEREALISM Media, has an interesting to-do list of 10 recurring to-dos that she tries to do every day. This list isn’t made up of specific tasks but more general ones. Think family or genus, rather than species.

  1. Read something related to my industry.
  2. Read something related to business development.
  3. Send two emails to touch base with old colleagues.
  4. Empty my private client inbox by responding to all career coaching questions within one business day.
  5. Check in with each team member on their progress.
  6. Have a short non-work related conversation with every employee.
  7. Review my top three goals for my company that are focused on its growth.
  8. Identify and execute one task to support each of my top three goals.
  9. Post five valuable pieces of content on all my major social media accounts.
  10. Take a full minute to appreciate what I have and how far I’ve come.

It’s a neat way to think about and carry out your goals for the day!
