One Thing

Benefit: Identify high return actions
Prerequisites: Probability, Pareto Principle

Description

Not all items on your to-do list are created equal, so in order to make the biggest leaps in the shortest amount of time, you’d be best off ruthlessly prioritizing them. Identifying the single most important task and just doing that will yield greater results rather than trying to finish random tasks in the TODO list.
