If you are working on your 2017 close-out and 2018 planning inventory here are some insights that might be beneficial. Some of the categories you might use will be common (my three macro filters are Thinking, Consuming, Contributing) and some will be unique to your circumstances. The concept remains the same. Your efficiency and peace of mind will increase exponentially by filtering your content and agendas.
Early in my thirty-five years of developing, owning and managing a complex portfolio of real estate came the realization that you can’t manage real estate.

Chunking, then, is the creation inside the brain of super-efficient mental models that process events in a flash – and it is a huge factor in talent among individuals… If those chunked mental models are responsible for talent in humans, some version of chunking or modeling ought to be a way to build talent into machines.
. . . Talented people don’t need to have a vision of the future ten years out or even ten days out. They need a highly probable prediction just far enough ahead to see an opening or opportunity an instant before the competition. That’s true for athletes, artists, business-people, or anyone in any field.

Humanist Future Trends 2020: Peter Vander Auwera by Rudy de Waele was published only a few short days ago. Peter used the term levers in describing five trends that in his words, ‘could enable high-quality advancement for a humanist future.’
Three words and two concepts: filters and chunking; and levers. Put these into play in your own thinking, organization, and doing, and you will be glad you did.
