Yes, a great post, and a great suggestion to keep the list. I have found both with agency newsletters and with grant proposals that I can complete a great deal of writing/designing in a few hours or days - maybe even 90%. But the few things which remain may take an hour apiece. Ten little things turn into a very long day with a deadline looming. Pendant to the GTD advice to schedule work for the best times of focus/energy is to frontload the potentially problematic stuff. The Board Chairman's signature only takes a second, but scheduling a time to get it could take a week. Thanks again for some excellent points.
