8 Ways to Effectively Prioritize the Things on Your To-Do List

Priorities are important things — I know, you know that. But many of us are guilty of the habit of reacting on — and off — our to – do list to the urgent things, rather than responding to the important ones.

Important activities should be of high priority as they are the things that contribute most to our goals. They have more long-term impact and should help us to achieve our goals as much as possible. Usually, urgent activities are more of a short-term nature and may or may not relate to our overall goals and usually do not make significant contributions. Instead, they make endless demands on our time by pressing us every day.

Between the urgent and the important there is a constant tension. And because today’s important things rarely need to be done — and the urgent thing almost always needs to be done — there is a critical need to learn how to set proper priorities so that our visions, goals, and desires can be better met.

Do not prioritize on the basis of who gave you the work ; fit it for the big picture on the basis of its importance and urgency. Most people don’t take the time to prioritize this time. They are usually reactive, so try to be proactive in a concerted effort.
