Another hand mapping

I have developed a mnemonic device to capture the important elements of time management for myself. On to the image of hand, I place “decision” at the opposable thumb and on each of the four fingers, the four traditional Ds for dealing with a task:

Dump
Defer
Do
Delegate

The thumb (decision) reminds one of the many little moments of “going meta” to direct the flow of attention. The four Ds are useless without the practised grace of pausing.

And so for day 405
