I altered the calculation from this article based on the Pareto principle.

1. Identify a Task

Wash clothes

2. Determine Result (1-10)

Result = 7

3. Determine Effort (1-10)

Effort = 3

4. Calculate Priority

Priority = Result / Effort = 2.33

Examples

Write Tutorial: R = 8, E = 4, P = 2

Prepare Cover Letter: R = 10, E = 8, P = 1.25

Redeem Rebate: R = 3, E = 6, P = 0.5

Notes

Result = Impact of completing the task (1 to 10, with 10 being the highest)

Effort = Amount of effort required (1 to 10, with 10 being the highest)

Priority = Importance, based on the premise of the 80/20 rule
