Are you having trouble figuring out which tasks to prioritize and how to get everything done on time?

Get your priorities straight

Don't let all the tasks you need to do overwhelm you. With this customizable template, you'll have a crystal clear idea of what you need to focus on—so you can get the most important and most impactful work across the finish line.

What you'll find inside

✔ Work type

Determine whether your work falls into categories such as thinking time, meetings, initiatives, or learning.

✔ Impact level/scale

Is the work you're doing meant for individual stakeholders, or is it cross departmental or organizational?

✔ Effort level

Consider how much time, attention, effort, and energy will you have to put into a particular task.

✔ Enjoyment level

While it may seem a little silly, you're likely to be more productive and creative with tasks you enjoy.

"Ensuring we do impactful work is one of the top pain points of researchers, especially when we finally get the momentum going at an organization. Take the time to prioritize, and you will find you’re doing your best work!"
