Top Priority

I find myself, on occasion, with more concurrent projects at work than I know how to reasonably handle. It may be safe to say that we all encounter this situation from time to time. The issue here is this: By the time I have realized there’s a bit too much on my proverbial plate, I don’t have much time to sit down and form a plan of attack. It doesn’t help that I may get a call at any moment saying something has gone terribly wrong and it is “top priority.”

I’m sure there are hundreds if not thousands of books on prioritizing and generally fixing your workload but to read one I’d need a strong recommendation and some time (which I have precious little of.) To get things started, I’m thinking about working out my schedule for the day every morning when I get to work. That should be a good starting point… right?
