Planning is an executive function skill that enables us to create a roadmap with steps to reach a goal. Prioritisation is the ability to make decisions to take the right step at the right time. These skills enable us to work efficiently and complete tasks or projects in good time.
Challenges with planning and prioritisation can lead to work or tasks being completed late (or not at all), frustration and feeling overwhelmed. Improving your planning and prioritisation can help you reduce these feelings and regain control of your work and home tasks.
Executive functions are a set of skills that allow us to direct our focus to plan, start, remember, and continue tasks: inhibition, cognitive flexibility and working memory.
This video takes a practical approach to boost your planning and prioritisation, demonstrating that these skills are critical to being effective and succeeding both at work and at home.
