When there's a lot to do, do the hardest thing first

I'm curious, how do you keep track of your most important tasks?

Do you have a software you love? (We use ClickUp here at IMPACT!)

Do you stick to the paper checklist method? (I personally stick...to post-it notes, get it?)

I feel like midday on Tuesdays is when I tend to stray away from focusing on my most important tasks and get sucked into little things. So I figured this is a good time to talk about staying focused and keeping those priority items at the top of the list!

One of my favorite pieces of advice is to "do the hard thing first." So sometimes, I'll take the most challenging thing on my list and focus on knocking it out. Then, everything after it is easier!

What are your tips and tricks for getting the most important tasks completed? Let me know in the comments!

We use Asana. I LOVE the timeline feature.

Dale Pease  what about the timeline feature do you love?
Dale Pease
The ability to see all my current tasks in one place, and have an idea of priority and due dates, all in a visual format. I was going to post a photo, but can't figure out how to do it here. :-) Oh... I can do it if I edit my comment. See below:
