Work Management Plan 1

WMP0 didn't work out so well. It was way too complicated, and required too much self-regulatory energy (i.e., self control).

Here's a new Work Management Plan, WMP1The idea of WMP1 is to be sure big projects get worked reliably, and escape the tyranny of communication (email and telephone calls).

-- BIG WORK: Work for the first few hours of the day on my biggest project. Stop about half way through the day. During this period, let calls go to voicemail.

-- EMAIL: At least one hour before the end of the workday, check email and create tickets/to-do notes for new projects.

-- SMALL WORK: Work through the list of other small tasks. Review and preferably touch every task.

-- PLAN: Before the end of the day, write down the tasks that need to be done next.
