Do you have a carefully planned list of your top goals, along with the steps required to achieve them? Do you think you use your time effectively?
You may be a Prioritizer.
Prioritizers tend to be analytical and reality-based. They are good at focusing on the high-value tasks and keeping a list of goals in mind. They don’t just dive into a project; they sit down first and think it through.
That sounds great, right? Unfortunately, like everyone, Prioritizers have their challenges. They can be critical and rigid in work style, and, speaking from personal experience, aren’t always the best partners on a task if you don’t see things their way. Prioritizers sometimes have, well, let’s call them control issues.
That said, we can all learn a lot from successful Prioritizers. Their fact-based approach is usually realistic and achievable, and forms the basis for a successful project or task. You’ll soon see that some of the first steps in the Pink Pineapple method ask you to call upon your inner Prioritizer.

Not a Prioritizer?
Don’t worry. Me either. I have my moments, but my style tends to be more… aspirational.
We’ll cover the other three productivity styles this week, so if you don’t recognize yourself in The Prioritizer, don’t panic. Also, remember that most of us display more than one style, depending on the task, our mood, the phase of the moon, etc. Watch our Facebook page for updates and post your comments below!
