    Fun, Unavoidable, Toxic.

    Through evolution, the active queues in my work task list are actually P0, P1, and P3.

    I keep separate lists for work, home, personal software develoment, novels, songs, game development, etc. They are prioritized on a mode basis -- when I'm at work, I use the work list; at home, the home list, etc.

    Who has priorities? I work on instinct!

    I would love at some point in the future to be able to state that 'fun', 'challenge related' and 'worth while causes' would be my priority order. However, in the real world (for the time being) my priority listing covers how I will pay for: Security, Warmth & Food. :)

    Unmögliches wird sofort erledigt.
    Wunder dauern etwas länger.
    Auf Wunsch kann auch gehext werden.

    Rough translation:

    Impossible gets done at once.
    Miracles take a little longer.
    Witchcraft used only on request.

    1) Fire #1 which interrupted task #2

    2) Fire #2 which interrupted task #3

    3) What I *SHOULD* be working on

      What happened to task #1?

        my @originaltasks=($task1,$task2,$task3); my @newtasks=@originaltasks; while(@fires){ unshift @newtasks,$_; pop @newtasks; ($task1,$task2,$task3)=@newtasks; }

    Everything is other --- other than that which I am working on at the moment.

    Not very predictable, but the

    $flexibility =   $total_to_do - $what_I_am_working_on

    Pretty simple....

    ...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...

    A solution is nothing more than a clearly stated problem...

    Urgent, important, favour - but favour comes first. Gives me rope to do urgent, then important. But! "important" could be omitted:

    1. What I want to do

    2. What I must do

    3. Everything else

Re: The top three priorities of my open tasks are (in descending order of likelihood to be worked on) ... (just 2)

    sev-1, sev-2, sev-3. Well, that is for outages not really tasks. We don't assign priority values to tasks.

    When I've seen priorities assigned to tasks, the practical end results always boiled down to: "interrupt current work to get it done", "do it in the 'next' batch of work", or "never do it". Even though there were often more than 3 levels defined (and that 3rd level doesn't really qualify as a priority anyway).

    Respiration, digestion and excretion. Curious if we think about it, but it never gets old.
