No priorities, no effectiveness
One of my friends is constantly telling me that she has no time, she doesn't manage to do all the things she has planned and as a result she almost always stays at work late after the working day is over. I guessed that the problem was in disorganization, however, I understood the exact reason when I arrived at her country house earlier then it was appointed. We were going to celebrate her birthday so she was cleaning the house. She had only one hour before the guests arrival, and guess where she started to tidy up first – in the drawing room, where guests will spend the evening? No. In the room the guests will never see!
Prioritize, or lose time
Prioritizing, as any other task management tool, is well-known but rare-used. There is often a temptation to do the tasks we want or like to do, yet we should do the important or urgent tasks first. You can set priorities in the evening when you plan things to do for tomorrow or in the morning when you look at your task list and choose the tasks for the start. Otherwise, you will never achieve your goal: you will keep on doing trifles never getting the result.
