Ep 049: The challenges of task management
Welcome to episode 49, where we take a look at why it can be useful, but difficult, to look at our jobs as a series of tasks.
We explore why it’s crucial to distinguish between tasks ands projects and how to deal with those pesky tasks that keep re-appearing on your to-do list.
We’ve all got them, right?
