Since most of us are faced with an overwhelming amount of to-do’s every day, what is the most effective way to prioritize what ends up in our calendars?
The theoretical response: start with the most important items. That’s what I used to think I did naturally. But I discovered over time that the reality of how I choose what goes in my calendar is a lot murkier.
In fact there were many things that didn’t make it into my day that were more important then the ones that did. Many of our clients have reported the same issue.
