The first step is list all of the tasks, then to prioritize them into four descending levels of importance: emergency, urgent but not an emergency, important, and routine. Deal with the emergencies NOW! Then, create teams to deal with the rest of the list in the order of priority. Delegate and teamwork is the key to eliminating the emergency and urgent tasks, so your team is only working on the important and soon it seems to be routine.

I often worked in multiple tasks environment. when assigned a new task, I usually asked the team leader to give a priority for the new task. The job with high priority was fit into the work flow with high priority.
If the new task with high priority possiblly impacted the current work and made it no meet the timeline requirement, I will report to team leader at the first time, and give my suggestion how to handle the situation. therefore team leader can make proper arrangement.
If a new task was assigned without priority. Usually I would give it a priority according to the existing task catalogue, estimated the workload and fit into my workflow.
Usually the work hours was reasonally arranged for multiple tasks according to their priority, workload, timeline and other requirements.
Proper time space was remained in the schedule for some emergence.
The work schedule was updated each day and modified once there is a new task or the task priority changed. The timetable was very detail and work was arranged by hours.
I started Each work day by checking the schedule an setup one day\'s goal. And end one day\'s work with checking the workflow progress. the schedule would be modified according to the day\'s progress. Ofcourse any change concerning the timeline, deadline or possiblly impact to other\'s work will be report to team leader for approval.

I canít say I am superman and can take on everyoneís tasks/projects on my own. (The saying, ďDonít bite off more than you can chewĒ comes to mind) But for that reason, I take on only what I believe I can handle and create what I believe to be quality work, by deadline. I think in multitasking, it is imperative to prioritize and have great memorization. I like to review all the list of duties, note which ones are under crunched time-constraints and begin with those. I feel like itís mostly about rhythm and practice. As a personal assistant for one year to XYZ law firm, I definitely have had the practice in being kept on my toes. After awhile, itís the silence and lack of duties that start to stress me out.

An individual has contacted you via email to complain about the quality of materials dealing with grant applications previously sent to him by your office. His email makes it clear that he is very upset and demands an immediate response to what additional materials he might receive. Your supervisor previously gave you an assignment which is also due immediately. You cannot address both issues at the same time and still meet the deadline. How would you handle the disgruntled emailer?

I organise my work everyday in the morning and give priority list. Also inform the manager/supervisor about the progress. In case if somenthing comes up in between, I had to inform the manger and the people concern of the other tasks.
At the end of the day if I had not finsihed the tasks , I either stay behind and finish them or explain the manager of the cause of the delay.
