Tips & Tricks Tuesday: Mindless tasks for multi-tasking

Tuesday, September 8, 2009 by Emily Boyd

Looking for tasks that don't require too much thinking? Check out this helpful tip from RTM user lclarke522:

I created a "mindless" tag for those tasks that take a decent amount of time, but don't require much brain-power (washing dishes, packing orders, etc.). These are perfect tasks to complete while your mind is engaged in something way more interesting, like listening to a favorite podcast.

A Smart List created from the search query "tag:mindless AND dueBefore:Tomorrow" gives you a nice list of boring tasks – those due today, and also those overdue – that you can plug away at while you're thinking about more enjoyable things.
