I detest having to deal with trivial tasks that rarely move me closer to my goals. I ignore, delegate or pay to keep them to a minimum. Still, there are certain obligations which require my attention. I try to accomplish them in the most efficient and least disruptive manner. I have found that grouping these repugnant duties together and dispatching them all at once makes them less obnoxious. Every few weeks I schedule a busy-ness day.
On the appointed day, I create a game to complete as many as possible. I map my route, and with my agenda in my hand, I stand at the starting line. The starter’s gun fires and the race begins. I dash around town, while the clock measures my efficiency and I cross items from my list. Time expires, and I collapse with exhaustion and a touch of satisfaction. Tomorrow I can return to more productive and fruitful work.
How do you ensure your busy day bears fruit?
Keep on writing.
