Working out priorities

Priorities can be divided up into:

URGENT – must be done now.

IMPORTANT – must be done soon.

UNIMPORTANT – must be done eventually.

There is, of course, a lot of overlap so you might also list the things you have to do only in order of importance – the top one or two becoming urgent.

Keep a diary and a pencil handy to record things as they crop up.

You could also use a card index, or even a computerised database, whatever you feel you can work with.

If you find that more than two items are urgent, then you are the victim of bad planning – do it better next time!!

MOST OF ALL

BE FLEXIBLE – LEARN TO FIT THINGS IN

and

BE EQUIPPED – DIARY, TIMETABLES,
CARD INDEX, ETC.

Another way of setting priorities is to use the 4D system:

DUMP anything that does not need to be done at all…

DELAY what you can’t dump…

DESIGNATE a time for what you can’t delay…

and then…..

DO IT!

This is better than the other websites like becomeopedia and playspent even though they have nothing to do with this one.
