1. Create a priority to-do list

Creating a to-do list in order of priority is key to keeping your team on track. Use categories to help you prioritize and delegate tasks: urgent and important, important but not urgent, urgent but not important, or neither urgent nor important.

2. Start with the most difficult tasks

While it may be first nature to start with the easiest tasks, many people find tackling the more difficult tasks right away is effective in getting them out of the way. If you’re a person who tends to procrastinate tasks, it might be better to tackle these first.

3. Focus on one task at a time

Our brains do best when focusing on one task at a time. While multitasking can work well to accomplish several low-concentration tasks at a time, it can be counter-effective with high-priority difficult tasks.

4. Set deadlines

Deadlines are the reality of working individually or in big teams. Be sure to pick deadlines that feel both realistic for the project and the team members working on it. Asana’s easy-to-use interface allows you to set these deadlines for larger project tasks and subtasks.
