MTOD: Homeschool Edition #26

Mom's tip of the day - Homeschool Edition

The $25,000 IDEA
Years ago, an efficiency consultant named Ivy Lee met with the president of a small steel plant. The president was stressed because he believed his employees really didn't know how to manage their time and tend to priorities. Ivy Lee made a simple suggestion:

At the end of each day, take out a sheet of paper. Write down the six most important things you have to do the next day. Then rank those items in the order of importance. When you begin work the next morning, take out the paper and start with item number one. When you have finished that item, move on to number two (and so on down the list). If you cannot complete an item because of external factors, skip it and move on to the next one. At the end of the day make another list of the six most important items you have to do the next day....
The President sent him a check for $25,000 because his suggestion (which took only about 15 minutes of his time) made such a huge difference for the company.

How could you apply the $25,000 idea to your life and homeschool?
