Upwork recommends having strong organization skills whenever you are creating a task list. There are several different methods that you can use in order to organize your lists. These methods can be combined together for even more effective results. One of the most basic and most effective methods is to organize the items that are on your task list by their level of importance or priority. Occasionally on your list, you will have items that are necessary but do not have a time limit. Other times you will find that you have items that are very pertinent to accomplish in a timely manner. By ranking the items on your list in order of importance, you will be able to tackle the items that are of the utmost pertinence to accomplish first.

Upwork also recommends to periodically go through your task list and decide if the ranking of the items has changed or even if there are items on the list that could be eliminated entirely. If you effectively use this method, you will be able to save yourself significant amounts of time.
