Establishing Priorities

What is a priority? We all have priorities whether we carry them out and complete them. A priority is a task that MUST be carried out within a given time period.

 

Long-term priorities

 

Let’s look at some of your priorities, starting with a long-term view.

 

In addition to knowing what is important to you at the moment, you may also have specific goals and objectives in mind, for your personal as well as work life. ‘Goals’ are where you want to be at some point in the future — two years, five years, ten years and ‘objectives’ are what you need to do to get yourself further towards your goal(s). If you like, goals and objectives are the specifics or building blocks which ultimately satisfy your life values.

 

Do you have a goal? Maybe not at the moment — but you might have one in the future and decisions you make about what to do next should be influenced by the goal you have.

Planning Your Priorities

What must you do in the next month? What are your key priorities? Our priorities may be daily, weekly or monthly or a combination of all three. You will have key tasks that you must carry out every month; these will be regular tasks that you must complete for your job, e.g. expenses, reports etc. Or they may be one offs projects, new tasks, new clients etc. Because there will be a problem if these are not completed you can now classy them as your monthly priorities.

Prioritising Daily

However great your long or mid term plans are you will only be effective if you manage to complete them on time. Every long term priority will eventually become a daily priority and this is the key to effective time management ‘What shall I do today that will enable me to achieve my overall goals and objectives’?

 

This next section is packed with tips and ideas on how to manage your daily planning so that you are able to complete your Important and Urgent tasks on time and on schedule.
