You’ve probably heard the phrase “when it rains, it pours” before. Unfortunately, when it comes to making decisions it’s usually feast or famine. You either have nothing to do or you’re faced with a dozen important decision at the same time.
It’s important to prioritise when it seems like you have a myriad of decisions to make all at once. You have a few choices when it comes to the order in which you’ll make your decisions.
- You might prioritise the decisions based on which will have the greater outcome on your overall goals;
- You might prioritise based on how you think your own manager might respond;
- You might decide to prioritise your decisions based on your own likes and dislikes.
In most cases it won’t matter how you prioritise your tasks as long as you get them done. Some decisions are more difficult to make and, sadly, that fact will lead some managers to procrastinate – an ineffective move that won’t help the department or organisation as a whole. Make your toughest decisions first and the rest will be a breeze.
