Secrets of Success

Prioritize Your "To Do" List



Many people make a "ToDo" list by job time - how long it takes a given task 2 B done, from longest time or shortest time.Some people list things N order as they think of them. I prioritize by what needs 2 B done. A items absolutely have to get done NOW. B items are things that can be done later.

More Information:

'C' items would be nice to get done - sometime. When A's are done I re-prioritize. Some C items have dropped off. Some new A's may be added. B's have moved to A's or dropped to C's. Always be working on the important tasks in your life and you will be happier. Nit-picky 'C's aren't worth the worry.

  • I do the same thing, and sometimes take it a step further by labeling them A1, A2, A3 etc. This isn't always necessary, but helps in certain situations, especially when running errands. - by NCIS-FAN
