Here’s a quick way to remember priorities:
The first priorities are always the things that PROTECT you (your body, your feelings, your mind). That means things like hygiene, feeling calm and ready, and understanding what you’re doing are the first priorities.
If you are protected, the next priorities are things that have DEADLINES. The second things you choose to do should be the things that need to be done by a certain time. Everything else can wait until after these two things.
If you don’t know where to start with a project, my best advice is to start with what is EASIEST. By getting easy tasks done and moving them over to the “finished” pile or column (liked we talked about in the last question) you start to feel relief already. That way, when the challenging tasks are all that is left, you can approach them with confidence of knowing everything else is done.
