Learning to Prioritize Helping You Stay on Task

If you have a lot of tasks at hand, you may find it very hard to stay focused on just one thing. Just when you get going on one item, something else comes up and you find your energy waning and your attention split into a dozen different directions.

When you function like this it can be awfully difficult to complete tasks the way you want it done and when it should be done. Learning to prioritize will help you stay on task, tending to one item before moving onto another. When you are busy and continually multi-tasking this can be a hard skill to learn, but it can be made easier through the use of prioritization affirmations.

How to Prioritize Your Tasks

In any given day you may have ten things that you want to get done. You may start out the day by indiscriminately choosing one task, but then you find that another task needs to get done first. This is a hectic way to live your life! What you need to do is prioritize and organize your tasks. You will find that positive affirmations will help with this because they will remind you that everything will be done effectively and efficiently.

How can you prioritize when you have a lot of things to do? Each day, before you leave work (or before bed) list all of the things that you'd like to get done the next day. Be realistic! Don't bother scheduling things in that you know you won't have time to get to and don't waste your energy on things that aren't all that important to complete immediately.

You need to look at the most emergent things first and work back from there. You may find that some things absolutely have to get done today while others are not quite as important and could wait until later in the week. Number the list, with your #1 task being the task that you will start with. This is a much more methodical way to approach your life and you will find that you can get more done when you prioritize.

Of course, you are going to have times when you want to skip something or get off task and this is where your positive affirmations will come in handy. There are a lot of great positive affirmations for you to choose from or you can create your own. Prioritization affirmations can be as simple as, "Everything gets done when I follow through with my plans." This will remind you that you created the plan based on your daily goals and if you just stick to the list then you'd accomplish great things that day!

Prioritizing is something that comes easy to some and not so easy to others. Prioritization affirmations can help everyone! Sometimes these affirmations can simply remind you that you can get everything done without compromising your quality of work, and other times they can simply keep you on track when you're itching to get distracted with something less important. You will have more time to enjoy life when you use positive affirmations because you will find that you are able to make the most out of each moment!
