Organize your Priorities: The “O” in CONTROL

O stands for Organize your priorities. Once you gather your data, you need to organize it to use it properly. You will need to figure out what is most important for you to work on in the day, week, month, quarter or year. With so much data, it can become overwhelming, but prioritizing and organizing based on goals and deadlines will be helpful to make those tasks fall into place.

Your focus on this step is key, skipping it will cause you to work on projects not as important as others and even worse, waste time. Time is the only thing you cannot buy, so one must use it wisely.
