It helps you decide when to tackle a task by following the steps below:
- Define clearly what is the task and the actions that compose it.
- If the action takes less than two minutes, do it, although it is not an urgent or high-priority task; if not, defer it or delegate it.
- If you do not achieve the result of the task with the action, identify the next action and process it following the same criteria of the previous step.
- If doing a task will take less time than processing it, organizing it in your lists and tracking it timely, it is more efficient to do it right away.
