Productivity Hack – How to prioritize your tasks

When recruiting international students, it’s easy to get overwhelmed.

Your brain is probably constantly swamped with lots of tasks…

Or you may have a never-ending to-do list.

You always feel that you have so much to do.

I used to do that too…

I felt the pressure to do everything.

However, I was fortunate enough to attend the marketing workshops by 500 Startups.

What I learnt was this…

I needed to rank all my tasks…

The order of priority are:

  1. important, urgent (highest priority)
  2. important, not urgent
  3. not important, urgent
  4. not important, not urgent (lowest priority)

I should focus on 1 and 2 only. For 3 and 4, I have to think deeply about whether I have to even do them – some of these tasks don’t need to be done.

The next day, I focus on three tasks in 1. If I have more time, I do tasks in the 2 category
