As any business leader will undoubtedly attest, your to-do list on any given day can get a little lengthy. Yet while you may have a million things on your plate, learning how to prioritise, and what to give importance to and when, will make all the difference between meeting your goals and giving in to the pressure.

Luana Attard, business strategist and Head in Finance at multinational fintech company Truevo Payments shared some valuable advice on the subject in a recent social media post.

“Thinking about everything you have to do, you feel overwhelmed. Doing the one thing you have to do, you make progress,” she writes, emphasising the importance of selecting that one thing that will make a difference.

But how can you tell what that ‘one thing’ is?  The business strategist lays out three factors to consider:

1. Do the one thing that will get you the next client

2. Do the one thing that will create a better customer experience

3. Do the one thing that will add value to your offering

“Every day, every week, do the one thing that will get you one step closer – prioritise and progress,” she writes, affirming that prioritising your tasks based on what could grow your business is key to success.

“Most don’t accomplish what they set out to do because they get overwhelmed thinking of everything from the get-go, and freeze. Starting and growing a business is not easy, but it just might be easier than you think,” Ms Attard explains, drawing on her experience of working with start-ups.

“I’ve noticed one major contributing factor to success – those that have succeeded are the few that do the one thing they need to do. Achieve that and work on the next.”
