When faced with a massive list of tasks that need to be completed, and let's say that some of them will affect the ability to improve your businesses, how do you choose the right task to start with?
I have seen many justifications for people choosing what is considered a real priority - that one thing that must be completed first, and in many cases there was no rationale behind the choice.
If you ever find yourself in this situation then I offer a simple consideration to help you find the most important activity to focus on.
Evaluating your task list in terms of urgency (or deadlines) and impact (the benefit of doing the work versus consequences of not doing the work) can make the top task stand out, hence making it an easier decision.
Try it and see how you get on.
