It’s impossible to effectively prioritize, plan, delegate and set expectations with others if you don’t have clarity about your commitments. To get clear… review your commitments consistently.

If you don’t check your list, your brain will get full fast. If you want a handy checklist of what to review, please reply to this email with that request.
