Handling Your Business To-Do List
The goal during that review is to pare the to-do list down to something that's reasonable to accomplish during the following week. What does that "Paring down" involve? For each item on the list, the author asks whether or not that item is actually important for the goals for the business. Is this important? Or is it something that's just urgent without any true importance? The author makes an effort to discard as many as the items on the list. The real key is that this is a conscious decision for each item instead of a matter of necessity because the to-do list is clogged.
