A to-do list can become overwhelming, especially as we get closer to the Most Wonderful Time Of The year!  So if you find your to-do list not being completed, try the SUG method. SUG stands for Seriousness, Urgency and Growth. When you’re creating your daily, weekly or monthly lists, you want to take those three things into account to better see how to structure your time. Seriousness: How important is this task or issue? Urgency: How long will it take to complete? Growth: Will this issue get worse if I wait to tackle it?  Create a four column chart with Seriousness, Urgency and Growth each at the top of one of the columns. Then grade each item using high, medium, or low for seriousness and urgency and yes or no for growth. This will help you determine which tasks need to be accomplished first by prioritizing those that follow a High-High-Yes pattern. You’ll free up mental space for other tasks, and you’ll have the satisfaction of crossing something off of your list.
