Good Comment: "Urgency"

Phaed commented on "Those Easy Days With Nothing Due…" - it was a good comment, so I thought it deserved its own post:

Urgency.

I had a similar day today to yours yesterday. I did still manage to get a few extraneous things done. But, as a distraction came up, I asked it are you more urgent than the other tasks on my list. Mostly, the answer was no. But a few times, the answer was yes.

Now, sometimes a short, unimportant task can be more urgent than a long, important task, because clearing yourself of it unburdens you, so is sometimes good to do immediately. But you will balance all of these things against the urgency of your top priority task.

This means, on a busy day, aka a day with many urgent important tasks, your “filler,” do it right now tasks have to be equally urgent and important. On a less busy day, not only are your main tasks less important, but the filter for which “filler” tasks you let in lowers as well.

Days Twenty-Four and Twenty-Five: Switching Momentum

Sleeping at 8:50AM.

Setting alarm for 2PM -- 5 hours.

Have to be at Loft at 7PM.
