This 100-Year-Old To-Do List Hack Still Works Like A Charm

By 1918, Charles M. Schwab was one of the richest men in the world.
Schwab (oddly enough, no relation to Charles R. Schwab, founder of the Charles Schwab Corporation) was the president of the Bethlehem Steel Corporation, the largest shipbuilder and the second-largest steel producer in the U.S. at the time. The famous inventor Thomas Edison once referred to Schwab as the "master hustler." He was constantly seeking an edge over the competition.
Accounts differ as to the date, but according to historian Scott M. Cutlip, it was one day in 1918 that Schwab—in his quest to increase the efficiency of his team and discover better ways to get things done—arranged a meeting with a highly respected productivity consultant named Ivy Lee.

This is great, I've always had an issue with needing to get everything done and only getting parts of everything done. Thank you very much for the share, I'll be prioritizing my to do list for sure.

"The myth of multitasking is that being busy is synonymous with being better. The exact opposite is true. Having fewer priorities leads to better work."

^ couldn't agree more.
Not at all disagreeing with what Mr Ramani has posted 😀, but now-a-days I have always ended up with doing other 6 things which were not in my list yesterday👎.
Most of the time priorities are decided by the unread e-mails in morning!😁😉
