Life gets big on us. Swathed in busyness, what’s planned doesn’t get done. The human mind can manage a handful of things. That’s the absolute limit. No matter how important one of them is, it’s gone. We forget. Beyond good intentions only the urgent things, or things made urgent, are achieved.
Irony: there’s time for a distraction or three, always is.
The busy people that manage to stay on task use a novel, yet basic approach. Call it a list if you will, they do things now (yes, instantaneously) or later, but deferral is only acceptable if they assure themselves of recollecting the matter.
Exemplify these to improve.
