Prioritizing a list of to-dos often requires you to know when the tasks need to be completed, especially if they are all things that need to get done eventually. So, when you create a to-do list, you may want to include a goal date next to the tasks that have deadlines. If you are using a task list at work, you likely already have specific deadlines, but if you don't, one of the ways to help get things done is to pick goal dates of your own.

The Excel file includes two worksheets, one with a 2-column portrait layout, the second with a 3-column landscape layout. You can either fold them or cut out the individual lists.
