#753 7. Chunk “housekeeping” tasks.
 Chunk “housekeeping” tasks. Even though we’d like to focus solely on our most important tasks, we all have other stuff we need to do. Instead of sprinkling those activities throughout the day–or, worse, taking care of them when they pop up–take care of them in a preplanned block. Better yet, schedule that block for when you know you’ll be tired or in need of a mental break. That way you’ll still feel (and be) productive even when you’re not at your best.
QUESTIONS for thinking it through:
How could this clarify my Reality?
How could this benefit if added to my Disciplines?
Who needs to hear this?
