To Think About . . .
Impatience in dealing with frustration is the primary reason that most people fail to achieve their goals. Unreasonable expectations time-wise, resulting in unnecessary frustration, due to a perceived feeling of failure. Achieving the extraordinary is not a linear process. The secret is to show up, do the work, and go home. Christopher Sommer

I'm a bit confused. What are "early tasks"? -- is this just another way of saying "urgent tasks"?

And where it says, "first task on the list", does that actually mean "the most urgent task on the list"? I'm not sure if it's referring to first in order of list position, or first by order of most-urgent to least-urgent.

Josh! It means "first in order of list position". Note that this quote from Mark is intended to "ensure that the early tasks on your list get actioned" Well, clearly, if you only action really urgent items as you work on your FV list, then you will very, very soon find yourself back at the oldest item on your list. This is the the point of the strategy.
