A Unique Way To Organize Your MITs And Not Piss Off ClientsFiled Under Efficiency Tips, Intriguing
Recently a colleague of mine tweeted:
To-do list is so long! I will prioritize by first doing “What will most piss off the client if it isn’t done”. Then move on to “irritate”. – AmazonGrace
I have written about prioritization of your Most Important Tasks (MIT) before; however, I thought this to be an absolutely brilliant way to look at your priority list.
The moral of the story – success is relative, client happiness is an objective one-way street. Even if a project is an extreme failure in your eyes, concentrating on the tasks that the end clients/consumers measures success is [the majority of the time] the correct decision.
