A primer on how to act on priority.
- There aren’t many different priorities, since priority is binary.
- Something either is (high) priority or not a priority.
As soon as that’s understood, acting on prioritized tasks becomes easy:
- HIGH → Let’s do it. ASAP.
- Medium → Next time. If there’s time.
- Low → 🗑
And as hard as it feels, take those low priority items off your list. They’re not worth the time, you’ll probably have enough high priority items to take care of.
