How to Choose the Right Tasks to Work on to Accomplish Your Goals
In this 12-minute training, we’ll go over The Focus Framework.
An actionable prioritization process you can use to:
- Reduce daily “decision fatigue”
- Get organized and improve your own productivity
- Increase your business’ effectiveness
“This training gave me the perfect tool to remove overwhelm.
The simple but powerful framework Monisha explained for prioritizing and structuring work was easy to understand and implement. Every element was nicely broken down with concrete examples to understand how it works in practice.
Thanks to this training, I now have a decision-making process for choosing my focus and achieving my goals.”
– Omaily Lucas, Founder

More About This Training
This training is designed to help:
- Entrepreneurs, founders, CEOs, and business owners
- Creatives, designers, writers, publishers, and content creators
- Freelancers and consultants
It’ll help you give you a process to prioritize for your own schedule and for your business.
This is not another 2×2 prioritization matrix.
Prioritization is a powerful yet often overlooked technique. When done right, it’ll help align your day-to-day tasks with your bigger picture vision. Then, set you on a path towards accomplishing your goals, with less overwhelm.
There are a lot of helpful prioritization matrices out there that you might have heard of or even tried using. Such as the Eisenhower Matrix, where you categorize what is urgent, non-urgent, important, and not-important.
These are useful tools. But many times, I’ve found they fall short in helping my clients find true clarity and select the right actions to work on.
This is because they’re missing a very critical component: your specific context. Namely, the overarching goals that relate to the activities you’re choose to do everyday.
If you find yourself feeling scattered or overwhelmed you can use this framework to pause, reflect, and re-assess everything you have on your plate right now. It’ll help decide what to focus on and when to focus on it.
Ultimately, the best way to use it is to build it into your annual, quarterly, monthly, weekly, or daily planning.

Hi! I’m Monisha Bajaj. I work with founders to help them structure their businesses, processes, teams, and day-to-day. I also help people get organized by setting up personal organization systems.
My “official title” is an Operations Strategy Consultant a.k.a methodical counterpart to visionary founders and creatives. I’m also founder two ventures myself.
For the past 5+ years, I’ve worked closely with many successful established and early stage entrepreneurs to help keep work organized, productive, and profitable.
Before consulting, I worked as a producer and remote project manager on large, complex, projects including structuring and implementing $1M+ production endeavor and, at any given time, was leading 7-10 project teams concurrently across multiple timezones.
Okay, so why did I make this for you? I’ve found the most mission critical step is in business or any project is to get completely clear on your priorities. It’s the first step I take with all my clients when we optimize their operations.
Not only does doing re-energize and provide you with a sense of relief, it allows you to allocates your resources where it matters most and sets you up to actually be able to accomplish your goals.
Prioritization is a skill everyone can learn and do for themselves. (Like anything, it’s a skill that takes practice). That’s why I’ve made this training freely available here. To give you a technique to help you do this for yourself.
So that you can, hopefully, find some relief, get energized, and grow your business or take your project across the finish line. (Especially this year, so many of us need it more than ever). If you do use it, I’d love to hear how it goes for you – email me monisha(@)monishabajaj.co and let me know. 🙂
Of course, I’m here to help if you need a second pair of eyes as you get started—you get a free planning session with me after you fill out the form below.
Clients on How Monisha's Approach Helps
"My work with Monisha has been nothing short life-changing! I reached out to her in an attempt to organize my day-to-day; I manage many different growing projects and most of them are creative. I'd been wasting a lot of time switching between tasks and projects, which impacted my ability to enjoy the process and deliver my best work.
Monisha very quickly understood what I needed and how I needed it organized. Not only did she take that into account, but she paid attention to my learning style too, so the process of co-creation was fun, motivating, and incredibly fruitful. She was also organized so we knew exactly what had to get done in each session while remaining flexible enough so we could tend to what was needed in the moment.
It was a true pleasure to work with Monisha. They say structure gives more freedom, which, for a creative, can be counterintuitive. With her help, this sentence has taken all its meaning and I can't wait to see the ripple effects that of our work together will have on my own. I'll keep recommending her to fellow creatives who need to maximize their time lost in that precious "flow" state!"
- Ely Bakouche, Creative Entrepreneur and Founder
"Monisha is amazing, for me she is a business optometrist.
You come to her with a blurry vision of what you should do about your business and she provides you with the perfect diagnosis and treatment and suddenly your vision is fixed and you end up with a powerful strategy to put that in motion.
I will definitely recommend anyone to work with her and will call her again when I need. "
- Gwenaelle Lequeux, Founder
"Working with Monisha was exactly what I needed!
She helped me take my general ideas and big picture thinking, and distill that down into a very actionable and detailed plan. I knew where I wanted to go, but not how to get there.
Monisha was able to see all the pieces of the puzzle and fit them together in a cohesive and approachable way. I now have a clear direction and path to follow to make my goals happen."
- Morgaine Trine, Financial Strategist, Bookkeeper, and Founder, Honestly Bookkeeping
"Everyone needs a Monisha in their lives! I enjoyed the whole process of working with her and only wish I had done it sooner.
After almost 2 years of launching the business and building the concept, I realised we needed to narrow down the focus. Monisha helped gain clarity on what that focus was and how to implement the systems in making things happen!
Her strategic thinking, great communication style and structured workshop left me wanting more! She is passionate about helping small businesses and has a clear understanding of their pain points. She has great vision, is trustworthy and fun to work with.
She went over and above the requirements and I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again. Just jump on a call with her and see for yourself!"
- Samantha Gargour, CEO and Founder , Finding Startups
"I was overwhelmed and unsure of how to develop my fast-growing business so as to keep it wholly in line with my values and achieve a healthy work-life balance.
After Monisha's workshops, I feel like a huge weight has lifted off my shoulders. She was able to guide me in creating a very clear mission, vision, and strategy, and — most importantly — now I have a step-by-step plan I can follow for implementation.
She provides a clear structure to the workshops, making sure we achieve our objectives in a short amount of time, while staying flexible enough to improvise and adapt when priorities change as a result of our work.
She brings joy to business development and a clear-headed, grounded approach that has been truly game-changing for me."
- Marie-Anne Chaloupecky, UX writing consultant and Founder, Ways of Words
