How often do you have things on your task list that are important, but not urgent? If you are like most of us, these tasks regularly get shoved to the side and maybe never done.
Whenever a week goes by in which I have not made any progress on my important, non-urgent tasks, I choose one of these tasks as my next major work item. In my next available significant block of time I work on this task, ignoring all but the most urgent issues.
In essence, this is a mind trick of allocating time and getting to the nitty gritty of non-urgent tasks. The post also has another mind trick to help get these tasks done, but for that you’ll have to read the post.
I think one of the things that lawyers and law students must do is to juggle these low-urgency, but high-importance tasks. Do you have a method of handling these tasks in the legal world? Please post a comment or drop me a line.
