450: Closing Out Tasks Successfully

CUSTOM JAVASCRIPT / HTML



Case Study

Marissa had an ever growing pile of important papers that had to be dealt with. Client work, contracts, feedback, it was all in there.

When she joined our 90-day program, Optimize Your Brain, she knew something needed to change because it was starting to effect the incredible work she was doing with clients.

3 weeks in, Marissa shares how, the pile hasn’t grown, she’s procrastinating less on getting client work done and feeling more energized by the end of the day.

By the end of the program, not only was there no such concept of the pile, but her brain also made so many improvements she could see results in the way she dealt with email, laundry & even cooking.

Thinking Skills

While you are doing any task, you (without even realizing it!) are using your 28 thinking skills.
When the thinking skills you need to use are strong, doing the task happens easily.
If the thinking skill you need to use is weak, doing the task will be a challenge.

The struggle that Marissa had, came from a weak thinking skill of summing up & precision.

Summing up is the thinking skill of counting and organizing all the data.

Precision is just what is sounds like, being precise.

Improving the Thinking Skills

3 weeks in Marissa, shares how she “got this idea” to no leave her desk until she closes out the task.
That means until she writes up all her notes, makes sure everyone on her team knows who’s doing what & everything is all good to go. No reason to come back.

How did she “Get this idea”?
Well, for the past 3 weeks, I’ve been asking her specific types of questions to improve the thinking skills of summing up & precision.

You to can improve these thinking skills by:

  • ​Improve summing up by asking yourself summing up questions like: What is the summary or main idea here? Can you tell me the story in 2 sentences. Etc.
  • ​​You can improve precision by simply taking the time to be more precise

Improve both these thinking skills together by being precise when summing up.

Spreading Success

Once I saw Marissa was really good at closing out her coaching & consulting calls, I knew it was time to apply this to other areas of her business and life.
And so I asked her, Where else can you close the task out?

Immediately she responded: I’m already doing it when it comes to cleaning the house & team meetings. Whohoo!

Here’s some additional ideas she came up with:




  • ​Meal prepping
  • Responding to emails
  • Laundry
  • Technical conversations with my husband
  • Gardening her lawn

Essentially, anytime she’s done the task, she doesn’t leave the task until all the parts are put away or taken care of.

The coolest part?
Since she had improved her thinking skills of summing up and precision, closing out tasks was easy.
It was no longer draining and almost happened automatically.


Your Challenge

Your challenge this week is to work on either summing up by asking yourself summing up questions or work on your precision by taking the time to be precise.
