I want to act more on IMPORTANT projects (for me these are the project that give the maximum money payoff). On the other hand I get a lot of incoming meeting requests that I can't cancel or delegate (direct report wanted to discuss the salary; need to be awarded and must be there; need to push direct reports meeting; sports; preparing sales report etc). None of those lead directly to money.
I sit down and think that I need to do IMPORTANT projects, simulationously get lots of new inputs, and finally just sit and do nothing instead.
Any ideas on when to do those sometimes urgent low priority tasks? Schedule a block of time and move it if needed? Any simple ideas?
