The performance of any undertaken activity is measured in terms of its effectiveness and efficiency. No matter how efficiently an activity is performed, if it does not achieve its respective objectives then it is not effective, making efficiency is of no use. The same thing happens with most of us who struggle hard in life to achieve success.
The majority of us are efficient towards our success goal and objective, however, very few of us are effective in achieving the goal. There can be many reasons for not being able to achieve the set goal successfully and failing during the struggle, however, the lines below give the single biggest factor behind failure and how it can be avoided.
Biggest Reason Behind Failure
The biggest reason behind failure is the fact that most of us fail to take action. Thus, when the tasks are not performed in sequence with respect to their importance, the ultimate result is that the tasks lose effectiveness. Therefore, no matter how quickly you complete your tasks, if the sequence of tasks is not properly aligned, the tasks cease to be effective, hence the inevitable failure strikes. Hence, in order to be successful, the one thing that you need to more than anything else is to learn to take action and prioritize your tasks and identify the most important ones, so that the tasks are performed with due emphasis and importance ensuring success.
Here are some tips on how to prioritizing tasks to achieve success.
The first thing you need to do in order to avoid failure and complete your important task in an order that brings effectiveness is identifying the important tasks. If you don’t know which tasks are important for you to achieve success then how can you possibly achieve it. Therefore, the first and foremost important step in the ladder of success is identifying the list of important tasks you need to perform to be successful in whatever venture you are going to undertake.
Shortlist the Most Important Tasks
Once you have identified the important tasks which you need to perform in order to achieve success, the next thing you need to do is to make a list of the most important tasks out of the important ones. To be successful in whatever objective you are pursuing, there would definitely be some tasks that are way important than the others, therefore, make a list accordingly by bringing the most important tasks at the top.
Tackling the Tasks
Once the most important tasks are in front of you, the next thing that you need to do is to make a decision on how you are going to tackle the tasks as in which task will you tackle first and which ones would follow. In tackling of most important tasks, you must resolve in your mind that you are going to give 100% to one task at a time, and once it gets done, only then will you move to the next task.
Just Do It
There are people who would successfully prioritize their tasks, however, the problem such people would face is regarding the implementation of their priority plan because they think too much. Once you have sketched a plan on how you are going to tackle the tasks, then go on an do it. Thinking too much over it won’t do you any good, rather it will deprive you of the crucial time you have at your disposal to achieve your objective of success. Therefore, thinking is good, but thinking too much will make you refrain from taking action, hence the efficiency of your performance will suffer.
