How to spend more time on the important tasks?

Multi-tasking between several assigned projects can lead to situations where project team members can’t spend enough on their prio 1 tasks. Obviously the best remedy is to assign enough time resources for a project. But in reality, lots of big and small tasks pile on. Urgent. Last minute. And your strategically important project gets sidelined.


The question is:
How do you allocate enough time to your prio 1 tasks? Some things that work for me:

  1. Schedule and block time in your calendar for important projects
  2. Start your work day with the important tasks
  3. Set yourself reminders
  4. Seek active collaboration with other project members
