Grading Your Day on Pass/Fail

Here’s a simple idea I just now read in one of my favorite blogs, Early to Rise, which I often check at about 6 AM.

Every evening, give yourself a pass-fail grade on your top three tasks of the day.  Of course, you select the list on the night before or early in the morning.

Passing even one is a decent day.  Passing two is a good day.  And passing three is a stellar day.

And of course, you may be entitled to extra credit for success with something that wasn’t on the list, but should have been.

Many tasks are too big to complete in a single day. It is not practical to finish some (even though you thought you could) because there are other things to do.  Just making progress can be a pass. Most jobs can be broken into parts, with one completed that day for a pass.

Of course, this report card is just for you. Don’t cheat. Tomorrow is another day.
