I defer sorting tasks until the evening. In the mornings I feel best able to tackle High Cognitive Demand (HCD) tasks such as drafting legal submissions. Mundane sorting is relegated to the evening when I am less capable. This creates a problem. I will be sorting documents in the evening and will come across a sheaf of old tax data, or a set of complex documents. I will not feel capable of addressing this material and will put it to one side. The end result is that the documents are once again buried beneath a mountain of paper and may never be seen again.
Today, I woke early and decided to dedicate the day to addressing outstanding tasks. The goal was to put my life in order, catch up on deferred tasks, and prepare for my Monday meeting with Dr. H. Instead of imposing order, I ended up missing garlic and missing all my marbles.
This is a post about the application of task visualization to a window project. The condo association recently replaced all of the windows in the building. I have two new windows. The first is the triple panel living room window . Or what would be the living room if it were not crowded with bookshelves, file boxes, and stacks of TAQ papers. The second new window is at the base of the stairs to the upper level.
