With coffee


With plenty of, y’ know, real work to do, and all the distractions of day-to-day life, the little meetings, the snatches of time, the phone calls and emails and catching up … it’s easy to let the big thing gather in a pile. Those things that will takes hours or days to chew through. Those things that demand long chunks of exclusive attention. Those things that sit like spaghetti and only you can unravel. Big stuff.

Reality check – they won’t get done if you don’t get onto them.

Health check – does they all really need doing? If so, by when?

Now you’re sure … you can figure out some thoughtful project management process to break down the tasks, work back from the deadlines, and squeeze the two-hour focus-slots amongst the schedule. Or, you can sit with coffee and work it through. Today.

Skippy strategy: One way or another … get it done.
