Deadlines Have You on the Run? This Will Help.


Do deadlines make you nervous?

Deadlines are one of the biggest stress inducers out there. This is especially true if procrastination is an issue for you.

So, what helps?

Learning to set and maintain time priorities is a powerful time management tool — and one that helps immeasurable in de-stressing and amping up your productivity.

Where do you start?

A good way to look at things like this is to grant the highest priority to the task or tasks that cause the greatest consequences for yourself or others.

For example, what if your daughter needs a costume for a play in two weeks?

This ranks as a high priority because if you don’t take care of it, the performance will take place and your daughter will be the only one without a costume.

Once you have an overview, then note the priorities with deadlines…

When you are prioritizing tasks using this system, it is very helpful to plot out all of your tasks on a calendar.

Integrate one-time events with ongoing responsibilities. This helps you see and plan around deadlines and any overlapping priorities.

Remember – setting task priorities without a system is useless.

While setting priorities helps, you also need to follow through. So, creating a system that allows you to act in accordance with your priorities and meet your deadlines is vital.

Track and reward your successes, and don’t be afraid to tweak things when you run into logjams.

I’d love to hear from you as you experiment with this. What do you discover? How do you tap into the power of priority-setting to meet your deadlines?
