Learn how to prioritize.

If everything is a crisis, there is no crisis.

Not everything can be the top priority. Not everything can be urgent. And certainly, you can’t expedite everything.

You have to choose. It’s critical to do the important things first. That means you must set priorities.

If everything has the same priority, you won’t know what to work on next. It’s equivalent to having no priorities at all.

Ideally, there will be a prioritization list. You should have an ordered list of jobs that need work. The team can then easily refer to that list when they are ready to work on the next thing.

Also, avoid multitasking. It’s not the right answer either.
