Prioritization is the ability to determine which tasks are most important and organize them accordingly. A big part of this micro-skill is also the ability to break down large tasks into small steps which are then prioritized based on their importance to the whole.
Prioritization is an essential micro-skill in the development of time management and organizational skills. It allows students to organize their time based on the importance, urgency, and magnitude of their assignments, mitigating frustration and panic. Identifying the necessity of tasks, students are able to focus on the most pressing matters without feeling overwhelmed by other minor tasks.
