Value/impact of activity: Is this a high value/high impact task? Will it support a major goal?
Time required: How long will it take to complete the task? Remember to break large tasks into smaller subtasks.Difficulty: How easy or complex is the task?
Cost: What will it cost to complete the task?
If completing a task will have high impact, require little time and be easy to do with minimal cost, it is a high priority.
be certain you attend to all tasks that have high value or impact.
These are the ones that will make a difference in the long run. And
remember: If it isn't urgent today, it will become so soon.
