How To Prioritize Tasks

Hello! I hope everyone is okay! Today’s blog post is about how to prioritize tasks! In this blog post, I will be telling you why you should prioritize tasks and the questions you should ask yourself when trying to decide which tasks to prioritize. I hope you find this useful and learn something from this! Comment what you do in order to prioritize tasks!

Why should You Prioritize Tasks?

  • It makes you less stressed because you have decided which tasks you need to do before actually doing them.
  • It allows you to get the things you need to do done and stops you from doing unnecessary tasks.
  • It increases productivity and helps you achieve all of your important goals.

When Is The Deadline?

You should always prioritize the task with the closest deadline first (unless there is another task that will take longer but I’ll get into that soon). Sometimes people can do a task that has a further deadline because they want to do it more. Then you have less time to do the task that has the closest deadline and you have rush the task in order to get it done in time.

How Important Is The Task?

The most important tasks should be prioritized because they are the tasks you need to do the most and they will be more useful to you once you have done them. It’s okay if you don’t get round to doing some less important tasks in the day as long as you find another day to do them on.

How Long Will It Take?

It might be tempting to do the tasks that take the least amount of time first because we usually prefer doing shorter tasks as we can get them done quickly. However it leaves you with less time and energy to do the longest task which might make you not want to do it. Quite a lot of the time, the longer tasks are the most important so prioritizing them are essential in order to get them done!

  1. Whenever I am at work and get given something new to do, I follow a guideline of how important and urgent is it? Or is it urgent but not important? And that helps me figure out what to do first.
    Thank you for giving these tips!


  2. Love this tips!! I am definitely a fan of to-do lists, but I sometimes struggle with which order to do things in! So this definitely gave me some perspective!

  3. Yes to all of what you said. If I start working without a clear plan of what I need to achieve, I start doing all kinds of unnecessary tasks and fail to do the important ones. Now I pick 2 or 3 set tasks and focus solely on those and boy does it make a difference in terms of productivity!

    Thanks for sharing your tips! 🙂

  4. These are great tips – I have trouble with prioritising some times. I love doing my favourite tasks first, but am left with horrible ones or things with tighter deadlines. Thank you for sharing your tips!

  5. There are really useful tips! I sometimes have difficulty making sure I get things all done on time, particularly when I have a lot to do. I usually try and get the harder tasks done first, as that always gives me a sense of achievement (and I’ll be able to finish the task). I know it’s always easier to do the smaller and quicker ones first but then I would never get the tougher things done haha! Nice post – thanks for sharing x
