comment How do you keep tasks tagged as “unimportant” from turning into mini-disasters a month later?
I think this is the heart of the problem though. If you are working in a team, even if it is just you and your boss, it is essential to be on the same page when it comes to urgency and importance. With the above method you have taken the first step in making this clear and visible to others providing them with the opportunity to discuss with you your (mistaken) priorities and persuade or instruct you to change them if necessary. Much better than "I'll do it later". IMHO.

comment Is there software to log tasks daily?
I think this is the best way. It combines focus on getting tasks done and accountability with time. You can do the Pomodoro Technique with an app like the above or just with a notebook and pen. It should be really easy to account for the time and show how much progress you are making.
