Prioritizing Quality, not Tasks alone
Do not only prioritize your tasks, but also the quality you put in
Prioritizing means choosing one thing over another.

You can also prioritize the quality of your work.
You do not necessarily have to choose to do one thing and skip another. You can also decide to put a lot of effort and all your energy into one thing and do the other thing with the minimum quality required.

Do something with high quality and spend a lot of time/effort
Do something with minimum quality and do it quickly, with little effort.
Don't do the thing.
