Finishing Actions

  • Do similar jobs at the same time to minimize the switching costs between actions.
  • Avoid orphaned tasks: tasks that haven’t been tied up in the neatest way possible to enable easy continuation later.
  • If you can’t finish a task, tie it up for later.
  • Collect all the materials and keep them in one place till you resume.
  • Jot down any thoughts you have that are at the top of your mind that you want to remember.
  • Schedule your session to resume work.
  • Communicate your progress to a partner or stakeholders to assess what remains to be done and whether help is available.
