Tips for managing and organizing tasks

After you have determined the following:
• Your main OBJECTIVE(S).

• The GOALS that must be accomplished before attaining your objective.

• The STEPS that must be accomplished before attaining your goals.

• The TASKS that must be accomplished before attaining your steps.

… then, the most important thing is to prioritize them from top to bottom (first prioritize your objective(s), then your goals, then the steps, and finally the tasks.

Once done, get the highest priority tasks, put them on your “Today’s To-do List,” and execute them. Keep your eyes on the ball and avoid distractions, because there will be many.


You have to work not harder, but smarter.
Follow this rule: 20% of tasks give 80% of results. A famous management expert, Peter Drucker, says "doing the right thing is more important than doing things right."

Doing the right thing is effectiveness; doing things right is efficiency. Focus first on effectiveness (identifying what is the right thing to do), then concentrate on efficiency (doing it right).
