Tips & Tricks Tuesday: Staying on top of postponed tasks

Tuesday, July 7, 2009 by Emily Boyd

That little "Postpone" button can be rather tempting at times. RTM user bradlowens shares this tip for keeping postponed tasks in check.

Postponed search

A saved custom search I use in RTM is to search for those tasks that I keep pushing off. I use the search postponed:"> 7" to see any tasks that I've been pushing off for a week or more. If they need to be done, I set them as high priority so I get to them right away or if I've decided they aren't important, I just delete them.

This should help you keep from pushing off tasks later and later.
