An interesting post at Google Blogoscoped about the Push vs Pull gradient. How do we prioritise tasks? Nobody will tend to interrupt a face to face conversation to read the next chapter of The God Delusion, but almost all of us would interrupt an e-mail we were writing to answer a call.
Here’s 10 activities – reorganize these in priority order; then feel free to post your thoughts on the comments.
Face to Face Conversation
- Phone Call
- Face to Face Conversation
- Text Message
- Instant Messenger
- RSS Feeds
I’m ashamed to say that I’d probably interrupt a face to face conversation to answer the phone; yep. It’s probably worth asking yourself where you’d put things such as dinner, work deadlines and sleep.
