Not everything a priority! Tasks compete for your attention; effectively identifying your priorities will move you focusing on the essentials.
Seven ideas to increase your success in focusing on priorities include:
- Every task/assignment needs a specific deadline.
- Identify the start time to meet your deadline and then add a buffer.
- Add a longer buffer for critical and/or time-sensitive tasks.
- If a really has no specific deadline move out of sight. (these C priorities and may never get completed)
- Only tasks that have to be completed today are your “A” priorities”.
- Organize the tasks that need to be started on another day in order of when they need to be started.
- Finish all your “A’s” before you consider starting a “B”.
