    • What is the Rule of 3?
      Set a limit of 3 things.
      Group things in 3’s.
    • Why Use the Rule of 3?
      Setting a limit of 3 makes it easy to focus and prioritize on meaningful results.
      Grouping things in 3’s makes them easy to remember and repeat.
    • How To Use the Rule of 3
      Think in 3’s:
      3 results for your day.
      3 results for your week.
      3 results for your month.
      3 results for your year.
    • Example – Start Your Day with The Rule of 3
      Ask yourself, “What are the 3 most important things I want to accomplish today?”
      Examples
      • Enjoy the sunshine.
      • Make significant progress on my project.
      • Synch up with Mike.
    • Example – Add The Rule of 3 to Your To Do List
      Identify the 3 most important results you want to accomplish today and bubble them to the top of your To Do list.
      Before
      After (The Rule of 3)
      Prioritize your day against your 3 results, whether it’s incoming requests or you’re making your way through your backlog of things to do.
    • Example – Add The Rule of 3 to Your New Year’s Resolution
      Ask yourself, “What are the 3 most meaningful results I want for this year?”
      Before
      Drop 20 pounds.
      After (The Rule of 3)
      Get to my fighting weight.
      Take an epic adventure.
      Finish my book.
    • Test Yourself
      What are the 3 key results you want to accomplish for today?
      What are the 3 key results you want for the year?
      You should be able to say the 3 things you want to accomplish for the day without looking them up. The more you do it, the easier it gets.
    • Key Take Aways
      Use The Rule of 3 to help you focus and remember key things.
      Use The Rule of 3 to identify 3 outcomes for the day, the week, the month, and the year.
      If you already have a To Do list, add 3 key outcomes (not activities), to the top.
      Use The Rule of 3 to design your day and drive your day.
