Timothy Donald Cook, also known as Tim Cook, is the Chief Executive Officer of Apple. Cook is a well known American business executive and an engineer. Tim is behind the company which runs the most profitable business in America. Last year, Apple brought in more than $ 48 billion in net income.

Steve Jobs, the co founder of Apple, introduced Tim Cook to the company. In an interview with Bloomberg, Tim was quoted saying working for Steve Jobs was “liberating.” He added, if he had a “really big” idea, he would just simply bring it to Steve Jobs, if Jobs liked it he would just say “OK” and let Tim work on it.

“It was like a total revelation for me that a company could run like this, because I was used to these layers and bureaucracies and studies the sort of paralysis that companies could get into and Apple was totally different,” said Cook.

Tim Cook celebrates his seventh anniversary as Apple’s CEO after being with Apple for 14 years. He took over the company in 2011 after the passing of Steve Jobs. Jobs died after a long battle with cancer at the age of 56.

Steve Jobs’ desire to move into the consumer space for Apple and his lack of interest in growing financially convinced Cook to join Apple. In his first  interview in 1998 for the position, Cook wanted to join Apple within five minutes of meeting Steve Jobs. Cook was so mesmerized with Jobs charm and the way he ran the company, he resigned from his job at Compaq the next day, he did not look back from Apple ever since.

Cook adapted the role as the CEO seamlessly, he calls the job “his oxygen.” He built a reputation as a demanding boss, he holds marathon meetings, questions everything and is constantly emailing employees.

Talking about how Cook’s Apple is going to be different he said, “I love museums, but I don’t want to live in one. Steve taught us to not focus on the past. Be future focused.”

At work, everything is at a high priority, how do you then structure your list of priorities with everything you need to accomplish. Knowing how to structure your priorities, is a key skill to have. To hit deadlines, you need to follow these steps and make your life easier, for you and your colleagues.

Write a to do list

Even though, you know everything you need to get done, it is best if you jot down everything with the deadline date. Do not worry about the order, just brain dump, small tasks as well as big tasks on to the list. From walking the dogs to finishing up a work related document that is due in two hours.

Identify what is urgent

After writing everything down, look at the things needed to be done the quickest, the work, if not done as soon as possible can have negative consequences. That work related document which is now due in an hour and fifty minutes.

Assess value

Look at the leftover tasks, and identify tasks adding the most value to the company upon completion. You should be able to recognize what tasks provide you or your organisation with the most value. If there is cooking food on your list, it would be helpful to do that before embarking to do everything else on an empty stomach.

Rearrange the tasks

After identifying the work needed to be done first and the work garnering the most value when completed. It is time to rearrange the tasks requiring the most effort. The easiest way to do this is by employing a prioritisation method by Brian Tracy. It focuses on your feelings towards the task.

In the words of Mark Twain, if the first thing you do each morning is to eat a live frog, you can go through the day with the satisfaction of knowing it is probably the worst thing going to happen to you all day long. With this ideology in mind, get the worst task done first.

  1. Things you do not want to do and you do not need to do.
  2. Things you do not want to do but actually, need to do.
  3. Things you want to do and actually need to do.
  4. Things you want to do and do not need to do.

Remember you only have twenty four hours in a day, make sure you do not bite off more than you can chew.
