Today was day three of my new time management system. I’m at the stage now where in some ways I’m feeling really good about it and others less so. Good because it’s making me deal with some tasks which have been waiting to be done for ages. On the other hand I’m sure my active list is just getting longer and longer.
There have been times where I’ve dipped into the active list to make sure that the more immediate jobs are getting sorted – last thing I want is a client waiting for days for a response to an email because I haven’t reached that point of the list yet. But my goal is to clear everything from my original backlog so that I can draw a line at the end of the active list and start the process again. If I put my head down tomorrow and bash through it I’m hopeful that I’ll reach that point.
