When you prioritize daily tasks, it helps to start with a master task list.
Some people work well to ‘sort’ their master lists first by priority – In other words – What MUST be done first, second, third. BUT, many people don’t like to work with such restrictions in their time. Many people just like to look at all the things they need to complete and then start working based on how they ‘feel’ at any given time.
Whether you are a compulsive lister/planner, or one who is motivated to take action by how you feel, it’s still important to have your master list written out so you can stay focused on what you need to accomplish.
Another technique is to look at your master list and work from the ‘pain/pressure’ of what you’ll experience if the item remains incomplete… In other words, ask yourself – what will cause me the most PAIN if I don’t do this…
To identify the most important items to concentrate on try to isolate those that will turn over to the highest rewards (or most pain if left incomplete) in the future.
“Failing to plan is planning to fail” according to the experts and will eventually lead to failure and disorganization.
