Most people can prioritize when faced with right or wrong issues. The challenge arises when we are faced with two good choices. Now what should we do? If you’re having trouble deciding between two good things, then look at these suggestions:
Ask your overseer or coworkers their preference.
Can one of the options be handled by someone else? If so, pass it on and work on the one only you can do.
Which option would be of greater benefit to the customer? Too many times we are like the merchant who was so intent on trying to keep the store clean that he would never unlock the front door. The real reason for the store is to have customers, not to clean it!
Make your decision based on the purpose of the organization.
