Last week, Jonathan shared a GLP Riff about how he prioritizes major projects.
He talked about his move away from "batching" tasks and parallel creation to taking a longer view and adopting a Serial Creation
approach to getting big projects done better, faster and more humanely.
Apparently, that spurred a lot of conversation. And, it led to a lot of questions, one of which was...
With between 3 and 10 substantial projects that are calling us at any given time, how do we choose what to work on, and in what order?
That made us think. How DO we choose? Turns out, there is a bit of a step-by-step process involved. Whether it's right for you, only you'll know. But, in this week's GLP Riff, Jonathan responds to the question of one awesome listener with some specifics about how he prioritizes what to work on and when.
In his answer, he also references the work of productivity savant, Charlie Gilkey
, along with the 4 Tendencies
developed by The Happiness Project and Better Than Before author, Gretchen Rubin. You should check them both out, tons to be learned from these wizards of optimal living.
