I've read about the concepts of urgency and importance, but I'm struggling with the actual mechanics of tracking these things.
How should my todo list be set up? Should I have multiple lists? Basically, let's say I have 3 items I have to do:
- book ticket for my friend's wedding 8 months from now (important, not urgent)
- spend the $5 credit at some store that is expiring in 2 days (urgent, not that important)
- organize that box of old wires (neither important nor urgent)
Where, exactly, would these items go?
Tangentially related is the concept of picking due dates. Clearly the second item (store credit) is due two days from now, but how should I go about selecting a due date for the first (plane ticket for 8 months out)?
