Lack of attention to task prioritisation One of the most common time management mistakes is prioritising tasks effectively, leading to a lack of focus and inefficient time utilisation. How to avoid Create a comprehensive to-do list: Begin by listing all priorities and deadlines. Categorise tasks: Break down tasks into categories such as urgent, important and low-priority tasks in a task list. Implement prioritisation systems: Utilise methods like the Eisenhower Matrix or ABCDE technique to rank tasks based on importance and urgency. Focus effort on high-priority tasks: Allocate significant time to work on high-priority tasks first.
