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.

There are certain websites we need to use everyday.

It's 2013, so email is pretty much a must-have. Facebook used to be a social network but now it's a necessity if you want to keep some semblance of connection with old friends. It's also used for events and group messaging and whatnot. Point is- some internet facets have become more than just websites and are now societal norms.

Unfortunately, a lot of these websites, in an effort to gain ad revenue, go beyond their functional purpose and take on an entertainment role. They can become quite the time sink, and since you need them to function properly, you can't just fire up leechblock and block them altogether.
