Why Task Prioritization Is Important To Get Things Done

I don’t know about you, but COVID-19 has me all over the place when it comes to getting things done. I’m normally an organized person that’s always on the go, but lately getting anything done has been a real challenge. So, I’ve had to refigure my task prioritization to get more done.

But how does task prioritization work? Why is it important? And how does it really help you get more done even though you never really have more time?

Those are all really valid questions that many of us have, so let’s dig into why you should consider using tax prioritization to help you through these challenging times and beyond.

It Saves Time

Let’s be honest, there are only 24-hours in the day. We can’t make any more and a significant amount of those (typically somewhere around eight) needs to be dedicated to sleep. And, unless your a workaholic (admittedly, I am) chances are you’d rather dedicate as many of your waking hours to things you like to do instead of work.

That’s where task prioritization comes in. While it can’t make more time, it can give you more. By giving yourself priority tasks that have to be done, it’ll be easier to step away at the end of the day because you’ve gotten what you needed to do done, even if you’re entire list isn’t complete yet (honestly, it probably has too much on it). 

Not only that, but prioritization can help you see what you need to get done and can help identify like tasks that can be done together to save time in the long run. 

It Helps You Get the Hard Things Done

Chances are there are a few tasks that you find harder to get done than others. Maybe they’re more challenging or maybe you just enjoy doing them less, but regardless they exist. These, especially if they need to be done sooner rather than later, should be at the top of your list.

Task prioritization can help you identify those tasks that take longer to get done and get them at the top of your list so they get done on time and sooner. Starting with harder things can actually make your day more productive. You not only get them out of the way, but you also feel way more accomplished when you get a chance to tick something off your to-do list. 

It Helps Make Sure You’re Spending Time on the Right Things

Sometimes I find myself spending the entire day doing something I love (which is great) but then I don’t take the time to do everything else. Or I find myself trying to do something huge in too small of amount of time.

Task prioritization can help you even out your to do list so that everything gets done not just anything. It can also help take things off your plate that you can get done by someone else so you can spend your time on the things that you need to do.

At the end of the day, task prioritization can help you save time and money while making sure that the things you need to do are getting done.
