Question 1 of 30

How do you prioritize tasks?

"I prioritize tasks by writing notes and lists. At the end of each workday, I list what needs to be prioritized for the following day in my planner. I also write tasks on a whiteboard each morning at the team meeting and delegate assignments to the team according to the priorities. If something unexpected comes up during the day, I reprioritize assignments based on what needs to be completed most urgently. This method works well for me and keeps my team and me on task and able to meet or beat every deadline."
