4 Easy-to-Implement Steps to Learn How to Manage Information and Tasks from Scratch

Author: Paco Cantero

We know how you feel:

  • You receive a ton of emails every day.
  • You’re bombarded by information all the time.
  • You notice and feel you’re not moving towards your goals.
  • And, at times, you feel a sensation of emptiness creeping up at the end of the day.

It’s so much. You just want to collapse!

Yes, we know you’re exhausted. But, don’t worry, we’ve been there too.

The question you always ask yourself is this:

How the hell do I solve and overcome this situation?


How Do You Start?

Well, that’s our goal in this post: to show you 4 easy-to-implement steps that will help you start to change the situation you’re in.

Just by following them, you’ll start building a system you can trust to manage your information and tasks better.

Yes, believe it: it’s going to change your entire life!

So, let’s dive in!


Our Previous Recommendation

Before we go all in, please, follow this recommendation. From now on, forget about apps!

Reframe your thinking and focus on workflows.

Think in processes, not apps.

With this different approach, you’ll understand how to find your way out of your negative situation.


Meet ICOR®!

We’d like for you to better understand what this is all about.

So, to make things easier for you, we’ll introduce you to ICOR®, a framework that’ll help you start creating a system. You can learn more about it by joining our Membership for free and enjoying our ICOR® Mastery Course.

This system will help you manage 2 fundamental elements in your life:

  1. Information
  2. Action

ICOR® stands for INPUTCONTROLOUTPUT, and REFINE.

Each of them is a stage in the process you must follow in order to create the system of your dreams.

So, let’s check out each stage, one at a time!


Stage 1: INPUT

With INPUT the goal is quite simple: Take information from “the outer world” and bring it to “your world”.

You have to define these 4 things:

  1. Your sources of information.
  2. What you want or need to capture.
  3. How to capture it.
  4. The final destination of that info. What’s called a SSOT (Single Source Of Truth).

Now that you have your information in your system, let’s move to the second stage: CONTROL.


Stage 2: CONTROL

Like INPUT the goal of control is simple.

With the CONTROL stage, you decide what to do with the information you’ve captured.

You have 2 options:

  1. Act: actions you want to do to produce outcomes.
  2. Think: these are thoughts that should drive you to actions in the future. That’s why you store them!

After this stage, you’re moving from information to action, that’s essentially what ICOR® will do for you.

And, that is why “ICOR® is where INFORMATION meets ACTION”.

ICOR® sits at the intersection of both of these worlds.


Stage 3: OUTPUT

The third stage is OUTPUT.

This is where you’ll get results from the information you’ve captured and processed in the previous 2 stages.

Here, you’ll get a list of all the actions you need to achieve your goals.

You’ll be able to schedule them and start doing!

Because it’s only by doing that you can evolve and accomplish everything in life.

But, there’s one last stage: REFINE.


Stage 4: Refine

REFINE is where you do 2 things:

  1. Optimize
  2. Automate

This stage will speed up your productivity and life by leveraging information.

It’ll empower your task management so that everything runs smoothly.

By refining, you reduce your anxiety, stress, and feelings of frustration. You cross to the other side!

Where peace of mind, relaxation, and focus are the ones who reign.

Now, you can start performing at your best!


Takeaways

Well, there you have it!

The recipe to start solving your problems.

ICOR®:

  1. Input
  2. Control
  3. Output
  4. Refine

A way out from the chaos, anxiety, frustration, and stress.
