Wading Through Details

I like to hit the ground running on Monday morning. The inertia carries me through the rest of the week. An irregular schedule over last week-end, though, interrupted my preparations. The first of the week brought countless petty and not so petty demands. Fortunately, a recent (to me) and simple management precept, do the most important task before eleven, set up a pole star for the day.

Coping with the rest is like walking on a warm mud flat through an incoming bark tide. I just slide along pushing flotsam aside. Once I start to burn out, I can pluck minor concerns off various piles and be done with them.  Dwight Eisenhower's decision-making matrix gives me leverage on real-time demands -30-
