What if you have an impor­tant task to work on, but urgent tasks take prece­dence again and again? And, the impor­tant task is pushed back over and over?

In Done! No. 557, I share what you can do to get the impor­tant, not so urgent tasks done in these situations.

How have you man­aged to get the time you need for those impor­tant, long-term tasks? Write to me and tell me. I’m sure this is not the last time I’ll be tempt­ed to fall into this pri­or­i­ti­za­tion trap, so your best advice is very welcome.
