Spending a little too much time prioritizing, and not enough doing? This week's tip, shared by kkingman, shows a different way to use priorities to highlight just the tasks you need to focus on each day:
Adding a priority when I added a task always seemed so arbitrary. All tasks are P1 at some point, right?
After a period of constantly changing priorities on tasks as they came due, I finally just set all tasks to "No Priority" and then each morning, or the night before, when I review my tasks for the day, I pick only 3 absolutely must-do tasks for Priority 1, the 3 second most important for Priority 2 and so on.
This gives me a clear picture of what must be done first and to completion each day.
