Do you have more than one priority?

If so, how is that working for you?

Priority used to be a simpler word. It was, by definition, just one thing. Maybe we should go back to that. At least, only one priority per day. Can you stretch that to a week? A month? Imagine if you focused your attention on just one thing for an extended period of time. How much might you accomplish?

Much like the idea from years ago of “top down programming,”

Also called “stepwise refinement,” it is a software development technique that imposes a hierarchical structure on the design of the program. It starts out by defining the solution at the highest level of functionality and breaking it down further and further into small routines that can be easily documented and coded.

This is a daily battle (but a good one) for me, to focus on my one main thing. That one thing may change from time to time. Ideally after many weeks or months, not daily!

I like multi-tasking (or task switching) as much as the next person. It took me a lot of years to believe that wasn’t the best way to use my time.

How about you?

#Essentialism

Of course, for some of us, choosing that priority can be a challenge.
