Resolution #12 Prioritize. Yes, there is so much to be done. But not everything is of equal importance. Prioritize your to-dos based on their urgency and importance. Focus first on what’s urgent AND important (like a massive project due tomorrow to your biggest client).
Consider delegating urgent but unimportant tasks. And if the task is neither urgent nor important, are you wasting your time even trying to address it?
Part of prioritizing is saying “no” more often. You can only work so many hours before you stop being effective. Don’t spread yourself too thin by automatically agreeing to attend meetings, networking events, etc. Assess whether the activity is worth your time before agreeing to do it.
