Chunking the Routine EssentialsWritten by Gerry McRae
Chunking a large project into small parts is a great way to tackle an overwhelming project you keep putting off until a large block of time is available. The problem is - that opportunity seldom presents itself in your busy schedule. Chunking is an effective method for getting these large tasks done.
Small business operators can apply this chunking idea to small routine tasks that tend to accumulate until some crisis forces them to use a block of time better applied to other activities. Small tasks become overwhelming large projects.
For instance, a stack of accounts payable has accumulated to point where suppliers are sending you embarrassing messages or, worse, saying unkind things about you in marketplace. Or, you avoid completing lengthy (government) forms until deadline or later. Opportunities foregone or just lost?
You can chunk accounts payable by arranging them in priority order. Then, establish a daily discipline to pay one or two each day. The discipline is enforced when you experience that healthy sense of accomplishment that has replaced sinking feeling in your stomach you had each time you saw unprocessed pile of bills.
