Yesterday I wrote a post about the incredible phrase “It’s not a priority.” Well in order to do what’s most important first, you need to figure out your priorities. Today, I’m going to tell you how I go about it.
This might seem self-explanatory, but you’d be surprised how many people don’t do it. I look at what’s due first. Yes, I need to write out my lesson plans for Friday’s lesson, but I also need to make the handouts for class on Thursday. Thursday happens first, therefore the higher priority.
I ask myself: what will take the most time? What do I need to start ahead of time? Do I need to do bits and pieces of it at a time over multiple days? This helps me reduce my workload at one time.
I know this sounds absolutely ridiculous. But at the end of the day, if you simply can’t manage to get something done, ask yourself this. The answer will always (I hope) be “no.”
At the end of the day, the world will not end if you do not do it.
