More Thoughts on the Random Method

After experimenting with various methods of working the Random Method I’ve come to the following conclusions:
- The random method is best taken neat without any attempts to prioritize. The reason is that whatever method you use for prioritizing will slow down the rest of the system.
- For the best results the list needs to be kept well-weeded. I am finding it works best with 35-40 items on the list - much above that and its effectiveness starts to fall off.
- You can use the list for time-sensitive stuff, subject to my final point, which is:
- When something needs doing now, do it now.
