Use the ABC prioritization method. “A” projects are those that are important because they will contribute to your long-term success. “B” projects are important but not urgent. And “C” projects are the ones it would be nice to get to if you have time. Always start with any “A” tasks and break them down into smaller, easier to handle tasks so you can accomplish them quicker. Then move on to “B” tasks and finally – if there is time – the “C” tasks.
