Discussion Forum > Time-Horizon for "Must Get Done"-Tasks?

This has been my experience also. Except that with daily No-List FVP, while it was still there, it could be successfully overcome. Even better with 3T or 5T.

This made me think: With 5T the time-horizon of >>>selecting a small number of tasks which must be done<<< is very short, short enough to be very encouraging even. But if the time-horizon is a day, it is already too much and procrastination incurs.

Why is this so, what is the maximal profitable time-horizon for "must get done"?
