I often spend part of a three day holiday weekend catching up in my office. Filing that needs to be done, important but not urgent documents that need to be dealt with. My intention is to deal with these during my normal work week (whatever that is these days) but somehow there is always a stack of items waiting for me. I'm trying to create a new habit - scheduling and doing this work on the Friday before the holiday weekend. Incoming traffic from email and phone messages is always lighter on these days, and I'll feel better knowing that the work is done. What is your pattern for catching up?
