The Essence Time
The old ways of managing time were slower. Today we must micro manage time by freewheeling the downhill tasks and throwing more effort behind the uphill ones.
List your tasks under two groups:
[a] those you have to do and can do without too much thinking (fairly mindless – downhill)
[b] those you have to do and which require much more thought (heavily mindful – uphill).
Reverse the normal priority order and put the ‘uphill’ first. Only when they are complete, start on the downhill. Possibly tired by now, they will still seem easy. Then sleep well.
