A matter of setting priorities

Saturday, March 14, 2009

Do you sometimes feel that you're doing more than you can manage?

I know, we're capable of multitasking or doing many things at the same time. Sometimes though, we're stretching ourselves too much than our maximum limit.

"It's just a matter of arranging priorities," my alter ego would tell me. I keep doing lists. I bought an organizer. I keep myself reminded on the things I need to do using my mobile phone. Still, there are things that I could not do on the scheduled day.

I'm not going to tell you how to set priorities as I am also working that out.

In computing, priority scheduling is important in managing the resources of the computer or network. There are several algorithms to do this and it's the operating system's task to determine which process comes first or which application would be alloted more time depending on demand and importance.

If you know a better way to do this in real life, then by all means let me know.

There is a lot of good with the internet too. When a doctor prescribes a med, I can look it up online and see all the information and interactions of the med. We can find most information needed.
Yes there is many bad things, look at the Nigerian money scam. Identity theft, bank thefts, and all the porn.
With good there is always the bad, we just need to look at ourselves and realize to control.

P.S. Thanks for visiting my site, I will come visit you more often. Maybe a link exchange or an article for each other to promote our blogs.


Nangasaba lage mo sako? jejeje

Oh, we're all guilty.

Here's my 2 cents: Priority management can be approached effectively in 2 ways -(1) through Stephen Covey's priority quadrant; (2) through pareto principle.

On the first approach, I have written an article on that, and you might want to click on the link I provided.

On the second,this is more a principle that should govern our approach to many things in life, especially work. In a non-economic parlance, Pareto principle simply states that 20% of our efforts actually produces 80% of our expected results. So it pays to identify and concentrate more on the 20% don't you think?

Again, just my 2 cents pchi.

Setting priorities is important to acheive goals however it's all about how to set them :)

I think the better thing is to go through the important stuff that must be finished earlier than other stuff and so on.

Hi Pchi! Thanks for the visit.

In terms of stretching to the limit of "time's elasticity" it's always a good virtue to forget everything else except a short chat with "Bro.(JC)"

He is always the best start to becoming more organized..

Take it from me!
