The 3-3-3 Method

If you struggle to achieve your goals, try this:

  • Every quarter, set three goals you want to accomplish in the three months ahead.
  • Each week, define the three objectives that will have the most impact on your quarterly goals.
  • Every day, pick the three tasks that will help you make the most progress toward your weekly objectives.

My friend Daniel Sjöstedt1 calls this The 3-3-3 Method, and it provides a clear direction and deep focus in everything you do.

Your daily tasks move you toward your weekly objectives, and your weekly objectives move you toward your quarterly goals.

And since you’re limited to only three tasks, objectives, and goals, you’re forced to continually work on what’s most important.

I’ve found The 3-3-3 Method extremely useful, and I hope you will, too!
