It’s important to have priorities. Achieving goals, being successful, getting things done are all results based on prioritizing tasks and focusing on outcomes. We’ve all experienced moments where the sheer thought of prioritization can begin to interfere with actually getting work done. This can lead to spending excess amounts of time editing and organizing priorities before realizing the amount of time being taken away from tasks and spent adding more things to a larger prioritized to-do list.
