Part #7: Creating Your Own 3×5 Plan (continued)

3x5 plan

Step 4

  • Write down three activities that you will do each day. These are different than daily tasks. Your daily activities are “bigger picture” actions. For example, one of my three daily activities is to study. Each day I study 30 minutes to 5 hours. These three activities will not change each day.

(I would suggest that you create on a separate document a weekly “to do list.” This is where you would list the various tasks that you will accomplish throughout the week. A typical week for me is 20 – 25 tasks. In a perfect world every task would help us accomplish our annual goals but as you know, many times that is not reality.)

Step 5

  • Next, write your three top priorities for the day. Ask yourself, if I can accomplish three things today, what would they be? Then focus your energy and time on those things.

  • Your priorities will change every day.

  • For more information about priorities read Quest of the Keys pp. 73-74.

“Successful people live by priorities not by pressure.” Quest of the Keys

Step 6

  • At the end of the day or the beginning of the next day, write down three things you are grateful for. I have found this to be helpful in being thankful for my blessings. It will also be a way to give you a better perspective on life.

 Here is a short review:

Step 1: Purpose…………………stays the same each day

Step 2: Passion………………….stays the same each day

Step 3: Yearly Goals………….stays the same each day

Step 4: Daily Activities………stays the same each day

Step 5: Priorities……………….changes each day

Step 6: Grateful………………..changes each day

You may ask, “Why write down your purpose, passion, goals, and activities each day when they do not change?”

Clarity, Focus, Results!
