Many individuals find it difficult to prioritize both personally and in business. They can’t seem to make up their minds what is most important.  Sometimes people have no idea where to begin.  When we teach our children organizational skills, they need to learn how to prioritize.  For example, when they have to clean their closet and room, their first skill should be in learning how to prioritize.  Once they master that at an early age, it will carry them through life.  In the workplace, whether you are an employee or a business owner, it is the bottom line that is most important.  If it is your responsibility to produce, design or  improve a product your first thought should be whatever you do has an impact on profits which translate into money in your pocket.  Even as an employee, sales are the direct result in your salary.  As you think about this, it is important to recognize whether it is a large project or that there are several facets to it and many of them are simply tasks.  If you are building something, your eye is on the completion and the satisfaction of knowing you did a wonderful job and have produced a superior product.  If you are in an office, being able to prioritize the paperwork  is necessary to finish a project.  For example, if you are in accountancy and handle the finances and taxes for various clients  the first advice you probably give them is to organize their receipts and prioritize the primary expenses.  That way when they arrive at your office you aren’t sitting there wasting your valuable time sorting their receipts and paperwork.  The important segment of being able to prioritize is that if you get the difficult parts out of the way first, then you have breathing room to finish the job.  In the Good Gus Series, the children learned to prioritize in many of the stories.  The series is available exclusively on Kindle worldwide.  If you are handling the finances or estate of an individual, prioritize your tasks and then if you need additional help read “Misplaced Trust.”  It is available on these fine e-book websites:  24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd, Playster and Tolino.
