My friend, Patrick from the Prevoyance Group told me about the two minute rule. It goes:
Anything that takes less than two minutes to do must be done immediately.
This, to me is a gem in prioritization. Its simple, an most of the time, is what we do without thinking. What really needs work is the ability to analyse quickly how much time each task that comes your way would take.
And also the humility to accept that some task is gonna take more time than 2 minutes….
