Setting priorities
  • The first 20% of any task usually accounts for 80% of the value of that task.
  • Once you begin working on that task, the first 20% of the time that you spend planning and organizing the resources necessary to achieve the task usually accounts for 80% of your success.

In setting priorities, always focus on the first 20% of the task. Get on with it and get it done. The next 80% will tend to flow smoothly once the first 20% is complete.

Forget about the small things…

While setting priorities, never give in to the temptation to clear up small things first. 

Don’t allow yourself to get bogged down in low-priority activities.
