Example of precrastination - Deepstash

Example of precrastination

You and your team are gearing up for a complex project, and they’ve sent a number of emails asking for clarification on certain points. Rather than taking the time to write back in a thoughtful and deliberate manner or schedule a call to discuss, you send back a series of half-baked replies.

Eg from my perspective:

When organizing the team on slack with small messages I find it to destroy my deepwork. Also the team is not very productive.

A solution is to have a clear call where we go through all the plan and make a rule to disturb the other one only in case of a bottleneck, otherwise have a call after 6-8h and see whats up.
