Have you ever spent a morning initiating a fancy new task tracking system, carefully entering, prioritizing and sorting all your to-do’s and projects according to a foolproof systematic method… only to find that you don’t like the answer?  What it’s telling you to work on next just doesn’t feel like the most important thing you should be doing right now?  Yeah, me too.  And then a week later, you’re back to that cloud of reminders on sticky notes that surround your monitor.

Numerical task prioritization is for large projects.  Intuition is a powerful tool, let’s use it.

Autofocus

Mark Forster has developed an interesting new system of tracking to-do’s that takes advantage of our natural intuitive understanding of importance.  It is also designed to minimize the amount of time and brain-cycles required to use it (meta-work).  Simplicity is good.  I think it looks really promising and I’m going to give it a try.  You can read about it here:

I’ll let y’all know how it goes.  If you try it, let me know, or tell us what works for you!
