- Set deadlines. Use a project management tool to define deadlines for items in your task lists and prioritize tasks with upcoming deadlines.
- Focus on 20% of the tasks. If 20% of tasks bring 80% of results, you need to identify this 20% in your task list.
- Separate urgent from important. Urgent tasks require immediate action, whereas important tasks have more significant and long-term consequences.
- Learn to say “no”. People who struggle to say “no” have higher chances of experiencing stress and burnout.
