We’ve all been there. Something is bothering us and we create a task about it.
In my case it was that my computer no longer allowed me to read and send SMS without picking up my phone. I created a task « Fix SMS on laptop ». And every day I was seeing the task. And that reminded me it did not work. And every time I received an SMS and could not read it on the computer, it reminded me again.
The thing is: I don’t need a task. When that becomes too annoying, I’ll do something on the spot. A bothering situation does not require a bothering task. Give that situation a chance to resolve itself, or yourself to adapt.
PS: I am still not sure I fixed the problem, I sometimes get SMS and sometimes I don’t. I hate it, but not enough to actually spend time to fix it
