This frosty day had me going through what I call my in-drawer. Separate from my in-box, it’s a drawer designated to hold the might-do’s. I love this system because the rules are simple to follow:
- Its contents are designated Allowable Delayed Decision Making.
- I can look in and take action (or not) anytime I feel like it (after the important stuff is done.)
- I can decide to toss instead of taking action.
- When full, follow the one-in-one out rule
Today I found a magazine scrap with this quote by Pablo Picasso: “Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die left undone.” The incredible irony is that is that it was in my might-do drawer. When I tore it out, I thought… I might use that one day. Now I have.
