The recent thread about contexts brought up a different question for me. I've noticed that sometimes I'll have a context in which NA's just sit and that is an indication that that context isn't really working or that the NA needs to be rethought: is it a mini-project and not a true NA? am I really the right person to do it? is there something else I really need to do first? For example, a big aha for me lately is that some things aren't getting done both at home and at work because they require building in chunks of uninterupted time which means I need to have a NA of negotiation with my spouse, boss, coworkers to make that time happen.
My question is this: do any of you have a process or rule of thumb for watching out for NA's that are just getting stale. Do you ever just set aside time to click off NA's that have been sitting there awhile, that aren't urgent, really do need to be done, but you are sick of looking at them on your lists.
I'm thinking I need to build in time like that. It is a bit like cleaning out your fridge once a week.....you either need to an omlet out of it or toss it.
