To-Do First is an intelligent prioritizing To-Do list for work and personal To-Do's. A priority rank out of 100 is calculated for each To-Do using an algorithm based on profitability, pleasure, importance and urgency.
Choose from 12 unique rank algorithms to prioritize the To-Do's that you feel like doing today.
For example, if you feel like an easy day you can set the rank algorithm to “Pleasure Geared”, which gives higher rank to To-Do's that are pleasurable.
To-Do's can be sorted to display work To-Do’s, personal To-Do’s, or work and personal To-Do’s combined. To-Do’s within these lists can be ordered by either priority rank or due date.
To-Do First also features a unique "Auto Urgency Mode" that automatically increases the urgency of a To-Do each day as it approaches the due date.
“Auto Urgency Mode” features three “Auto Urgency Models” to determine the rate a To-Do’s urgency value increases between the start and due date. The three “Auto Urgency Models” are fast rise, average rise and late rise. Alternately, you can choose to set the urgency of a To-Do manually.
To-Do’s that have not reached their start date are placed at the bottom of the list of To-Do’s and display "No Rank" in the rank field.
Take the hassle out of figuring out what to do - spend your time actually getting things done, not wasting time figuring out what needs to be done!

To-Do First review by Alexandre R. Labrie, CEO of The International:
I constantly think about what I have to accomplish first. Finish that report? Contact that external vendor? Work on that business strategy in progress? Prioritizing is central to any executive's work and To-Do First makes that a lot easier. It has taken away the time I used to spend wondering what I should do and it has freed my schedule from tasks I have now realized were not as crucial to our goals.
I usually have my setting on 'important geared', but in late evenings, I set it to 'pleasure geared'. This allows me to work on side projects that I find more stimulating but that nonetheless contribute to our progress. Put simply, this app takes the pain away from prioritizing your work and helps you to work smarter. It is a business tool that increases your efficiency, so there is no reason why you should not use it.
