This post is about how to use ‘The Rule of Prioritization’ for increased productivity. Applying this concept will help to strengthen and sharpen your focus and thereby, get more done.
So, If you are in a situation where you have a list of options of things to do, and you want to prioritize them so that you’ll know what to focus on, this post is for you.
Let’s get this clear and out of the way from the get-go.
You can’t prioritize a list of options. You can only have one priority at a time.
One goal, one project, one task, one thing you decide to do is most important to you at this point. Everything else has to wait. You can’t have more than one priority at the same time. the only time the concept of having more than one priority at the same time worked was NEVER. It only keeps you busy, engaged thinning that you are progressing, whereas in the real sense you are spreading your energy attention too wide and getting no specific thing done.
It will interest you to know that many people understand this concept but don’t do it. They try to get a lot of projects or things done in parallel and ends up dispersing their energy and attention in many directions without accomplishing any of the tasks at the right time, and some even ended up with poor results.
The idea of multitasking that most people have is a misconception. It’s not practicable or workable.
If you have little time, do a little research on your own, you will find out that people that achieve greatness in their career or businesses don’t have more than one priority at the same time.
Moreover, having one priority at a time helps to keep your mind, body, energy, attention and so forth on one thing and drive it home. Why? because where focus goes, energy flows. If your focus is divided you won’t have the optimum energy that a project or task needs to get done very well and on time.
For a moment, just visualize yourself working on one thing at a time and giving it your attention, energy and brainpower, and you maintaining that focus until you finish. How will that make you feel?
Imagine how empowering and liberating it would be and “goodness me”, the feeling of focusing and executing “Plan A” without thinking about Plan “B” at the same time is so empowering and accomplishing.
Listen, having said that, this does not mean you have to spend all your time on your priority without attending to other obligations and things that need your urgent attention in the course of your day. Not at all. Attend to things that will spoil if you did not do them.
In summary, have one priority at a time and ensure you are doing something relating to that priority every day. With consistency, you will start seeing the results of it in a short time.
