Put the most important tasks at the top of the list. If you have a lot to do, prioritize the items on your list to ensure that the most important things get done. Rate each item on your list as an A (must do today), B (should do today), or C (would like to do today, but it can wait). Take all of the As and rank them in order of importance (1,2,3...). Do the same with the Bs and Cs. Rewrite your list with the As at the top (in the order of importance), followed by the Bs and Cs. u Focus on one task at a time. u At the end of each day, put any unfinished tasks on the next day’s To Do list.
