During the course of a working day you can often have the impression that everything you have to do is both important and urgent. But are all those tasks really a priority? It’s important that you know how to choose from the various activities you have to complete the ones that have to be done straightaway those that you can put off until later and the ones you can delegate or even drop altogether. This means you have to be able to set priorities.

This course will cover:

  • Differentiating between two key dimensions of priority-setting: urgency and importance.
  • Using the CAUT (Critical Analysis of your Use of Time) matrix to clarify your priorities.
  • Planning your activities in accordance with your priorities.
