The ‘voice’ of your to-do list

Silence-shhh

Each of the jobs on your list has a ‘voice’.

Listen. Can you hear them calling you?

Which voices do you respond to first? The loud ones, the seductive ones, the angry ones, the happy ones?

What other types of voices do you have on your list?

Is the voice of a task a good indicator of how you should prioritise it?

Instead, put imaginary earplugs in your ears so you can’t hear the imaginary voices, and consider the consequences of doing or not doing the tasks on your list.

Now, in silence, how would you prioritise them based on consequences?

Here are some other ideas on prioritisation and a great, and very relevant quote, about a bee and a mosquito.

My best wishes, Paul
