Further to our preceding article on priority leads to prosperity; which you may like to read by clicking at the title of this article; we like to discuss it further with reference to To do list and also enhance further its productivity.
Before we discuss further, perhaps it is better for us to deal with the term "prioritising". By definition, prioritising is a process whereby you get something to be done in preference to others due to its urgency, materiality, and other criteria you deem fit.
Normally, a person will list several things he wanted to accomplish the following day. He then works on the list the next day, he tackles the jobs in their pre-set order, starting first from the top of the list until it has been completed before he starts the next item in that list. He will keep working until he finished all that has been listed. Then he is done for the day.
Doing this has its own merits as it may leads you to achieve your success so long you stay focus on your objectives. However, nowadays, the business is so volatile especially in regard to the online business. To enhance productivity, this process needs to be tweaked and updated due to the changes in the business environment.
Perhaps, you may prioritise everything and assign a number according to its urgency and materiality. However, you may have to re-prioritise them so as to accommodate the changes. In this manner, you will start working on the first one and keep going until you cannot proceed any further, then you can then move to the next chore in line. If you get stuck the second item, then you may either go back to the top of the list when you can continue it. However, if it is not the case, then you keep on moving to the next chore or job to keep it moving.
The key advantages of using this approach are as follows:-
a) your productivity is very likely to increase dramatically because you will have to hone in doing what needs to be done.
b) you will work far more efficiently because you will get the most important things done first.
c) you will not stop at those things listed on that day, but you may accomplish more than what you initially thought of. I have changed to this approach after numerous accomplishment of the things I listed on that day.
To refresh your memory on To do list, you may read our preceding article on this issue at the link below:-
And last but not least we hope that the above discussion has given you an insight of prioritising and its correlation with productivity.
