The 1–3–5 Priority List Changes the way you accomplish Tasks

  • The 1–3–5 buckets your tasks based on their level of their importance (1 — One major impactful task to be completed without fail, 3- Three important tasks that are necessary to be done, 5- Five other tasks that you would like to accomplish).
  • The “big and most important” task demands your immediate attention and must be done without fail. That’s the point — the 1–3–5 rule forces you to get real about the energy and time you dedicate for the task.
  • Addressing the most important task first for the day and then crossing it off upon completion gives you a sense of satisfaction. This then motivates you to accomplish the next task on the list.
  • If other urgent tasks crop up, you need to evaluate its significance to reshuffle your list. For this you may also block 30 minutes of your time daily for any adhoc tasks.
