Finding yourself overwhelmed with tasks? Not sure what's most important today? Try this helpful tip shared by RTM user srtech on the Tips & Tricks forum:

As recommended by those who are productivity experts, I've been attempting to define three Most Important Tasks (MIT) that I need to get done each day. I use the RTM priority system to set the priority of my MITs to 1 each evening or early in the morning. They then show up at the top of my list.

The key when doing this, is that if you do not complete a MIT, you need to make sure you change the priority back to normal, before defining the next days MITs. Otherwise, you will end up with bunch of high priority tasks, rendering the system useless.
