Every day is fluid. Meetings, calls, and solo time are all mixed together, blending to create the day.
Sometimes, I struggle at the beginning of those open moments, the ones where we get to choose what’s next. No commitments, no call that we’re three minutes late for. Just a small window of precious, open time.
The question I struggle with is what to do next. Should I glance at my sophisticated to-do list software, Things? Should I look at my list of Protemoi people, my most important relationships to invest in? Should I review my Opportunity List, the list of opportunities to proactively move forward.
I’ve discovered something recently that’s a great filter: do the thing I am most worried about.
