In yesterday’s post I suggested that the “dot and do” approach could be done anytime
However I think a more structured approach would be helpful and so I suggest something on these lines.
When moving to a new task, use the Randomizer to select the task as usual
Review any tasks marked as time-sensitive which lie between the task you have just finished and the task which the Randomizer has just landed on.
For example your Randomizer throws an 18. You have two time-sensitive tasks marked, one at 5 and one at 13. What do you do?
One word of caution. Mark tasks in this way very sparingly. Remember that whenever you increase the priority of a task, you are at the same time reducing the priority of everything else. So keep it for when it’s really needed. Don’t do it as a matter of routine. The basic rule is that the Randomizer should select the next task to be done whenever possible.
