Based on your job and calendar, set thresholds that create three different timeframes for work: a few minutes, a short time, and a long time. As you take on new work, research or use your experience to determine its timeframe. Work that takes a few minutes should be done immediately or asap. Add work that takes a short time to a task list. Add work that takes a long time to the calendar. Add deadlines to all non-immediate work to the calendar.
