1-3-5 Focus

The 1-3-5 rule is about effectively organizing personal (or team-level) work. By turning big targets into small bit-size pieces of work. That has both clear "how to" and "why"

On schedule (every week/month/etc.) we plan a goal, that has to be reached. Then we try to understand what will help us to reach this goal. And then plan a finite number of things to make the work done.

For better determination, we have these levels:

  • 1 Objective (main goal) turns into 3 Key Actions (our "how to")

  • Each Key Action contains up to 5 Tasks (real execution)

Ideas! 💡

This framework can be adapted to set:

  • Objectives per Team

  • Objectives per Department

  • Personal to-do list for teammates, to work on some deliverables or big initiatives like Success Plans.
