The Four D’s of Completion

The life of a winner is the result of an unswerving commitment to a never-ending process of self-completion .
Terry Bradshaw

One way to take care of to-do items is something we’ve all seen in time management courses: Do it, delegate it, delay it, or dump it. When you pick up a piece of paper, decide then and there whether you’ll ever do anything with it. If not, dump it. If you can take care of it within 10 minutes, do its immediately. If you still want to take care of it yourself, but know it will take longer, delay it by filing it in a folder of things to do later. If you can’t do it yourself or don’t want to take the time, delegate it to someone you trust to accomplish the task. Be sure to have the person report back when he or she finishes the task so that you know it is complete.
